I don’t go to see films very much, but I have been to watch the much-hyped James Cameron movie, Avatar, and I am glad I did.
I thought it was excellent and the animation and special effects were cutting edge, but what interested me most is that it basically tells the story of what has happened on Earth – albeit back to front.
The plot, which takes place in the year 2154, involves a people with blue skin and lion-type noses who are native to Pandora, ‘a moon of the gas giant, Polyphemus, which orbits Alpha Centauri A’. They live in total harmony with their environment and they know that everything is connected and part of a unified Consciousness.
The trees and plant life of Pandora have formed electrochemical connections between the roots which act as neurons to form a sentient planet-wide ‘brain’, or Consciousness. The blue people, called the ‘Na’vi’, have their own ‘root connectors’ which allow them to ‘plug in’, through plants and trees, to this network of ‘Oneness’.
But then the humans arrive with their advanced technology. They are administrators and soldiers representing the RDA corporation which wants to mine Pandora for an extremely valuable ore called ‘unobtainium’ (the dictionary definition of this word is ‘a humorous colloquialism that refers to any extremely rare, costly, or physically impossible material needed to fulfil a given design for a given application’).
The humans set up a sealed base to protect themselves from what is to them the poisonous atmosphere of Pandora. When they are not in the base or their flying craft they have to wear masks to breathe.
Some of the humans are able to mingle with the Na’vi for purposes of manipulation thanks to genetically-engineered Na’vi bodies which they technologically ‘possess’.
One human, a former Marine called Jake Sully, agrees to be part of this infiltration because he is genetically compatible with a Na’vi body that had been specially made for his late brother. These human-Na’vi DNA hybrids are called avatars.
Jake, however, falls in love with a Na’vi woman and with the lifestyle in general, and a battle ensues in which he helps to drive out the other humans, but not before they have destroyed the Na’vi’s communal home which was located on the unobtainium deposits that the humans had come to mine.
I knew nothing about the movie or the plot when I arrived at the cinema, I just felt compelled to go. But it soon became clear that I was watching – in theme – how the Earth and humanity were hijacked by the Reptilian race that I have written so extensively about.
My new book, due out in the spring, expands massively on this and so much more, thanks to the wealth of new information that has come my way in recent months. I am not writing or talking about this yet, because I want it to come out in one go, all dots connected, and not in dribs and drabs.
But, for sure, the Avatar story captures the theme of the Reptilian takeover, whether James Cameron meant it that way, or not.
To see this, you have to reverse the roles. The indigenous blue people are symbolic of humans on Earth aeons ago, and the humans that arrive on Pandora in search of the unobtainium are symbolic of the Reptilians who came here.
The ancient Sumerian Tablets, discovered in what is now called Iraq, say that a non-human race, the ‘Anunnaki’, came to Earth to mine for gold in Africa, and the Tablets describe how they genetically-manipulated humans to be their worker-slaves. Evidence of gold mining at least 100,000 years ago has been found in Africa.
Zulu legends also support this same theme and, together with ancient accounts from all over the world, they speak of a ‘Golden Age’ when the whole Earth was lush and beautiful and the people lived in harmony with their environment.
There was no hunger or poverty because people lived off the plentiful fruits of the land and forests, especially the forests, which covered much of the planet. The weather was stable and there were no seasons, because the Earth spun on a different axis.
The planet was also encircled by a canopy of water in the high atmosphere that protected people from the harsh rays of the Sun, the Zulu legends say. As a result, there were no deserts and water was plentiful.
Then came the Reptilian intervention that brought geological and biological catastrophe to the Earth. I explain in the new book how this was done – it is quite a shocker.
Anyway, the water canopy was destroyed and this is biblically symbolised as the 40 days and 40 nights of rain. The Earth moved on its axis and its relationship with the Sun dramatically changed to give us the four seasons.
The Earth’s climate was transformed and so was human life. Forests were lost on a vast scale and deserts began to form. Plentiful food sources were destroyed in many places and life became a struggle to survive.
Reptilian geneticists created a new human to serve their interests and it is significant that human brain capacity increased for perhaps millions of years until about 200,000 years ago when that suddenly stopped and began to reverse. It is in this same period that humans began to look something like they do today.
The Avatar story also includes genetically-created Na’vi-human hybrids to infiltrate the Na’vi by looking like they do. This is precisely what has happened on Earth with the Reptilians ‘possessing’ the Reptilian-human hybrids that I have written about for so long.
These are the bloodlines that control the global secret society network and, through that, the governments, banks, corporations, media, military, ‘education’ and so on.
Crucial to human control has been to suppress activity in the right side of the brain, or at least to stop it transmitting that activity, awareness and information to the left side via the ‘bridge’ known as the corpus callosum.
The two hemispheres see reality in fundamentally different ways and this is expressed in the very different perspectives of the humans and the blue-skinned Na’vi in the Avatar movie.
The right-side of the brain connects us to ‘out there’, the infinite realms beyond the confines of the five senses and ‘visible light’ where everything is experienced as ‘One’. The Na’vi represent an open right-brain which understands that everything is connected to everything else.
Jill Bolte Taylor, an American brain scientist, experienced right-brain reality very powerfully when she suffered a haemorrhage that stopped the left-side functioning – dominating – as it usually does. She was on an exercise machine when she realised something very strange was happening:
‘… it was as though my consciousness had shifted away from my normal perception of reality, where I’m the person on the machine having the experience, to some esoteric space where I’m witnessing myself having this experience. I look down at my arm and I realize that I can no longer define the boundaries of my body. I can’t define where I begin and where I end, because the atoms and the molecules of my arm blended with the atoms and molecules of the wall. And all I could detect was this energy. Energy. And I’m asking myself, ‘What is wrong with me, what is going on?…
… ‘And at first I was shocked to find myself inside of a silent mind. But then I was immediately captivated by the magnificence of energy around me. And because I could no longer identify the boundaries of my body, I felt enormous and expansive. I felt at one with all the energy that was, and it was beautiful there.’
This is the limitless, unified ‘world’ that has been kept from us by the left-brain which dominates our sense of reality and entraps us in the five senses.
The symbolic soldiers guarding the entrance to the left-brain. Picture by Neil Hague (www.neilhague.com).
The left side of the brain is our ‘this world’ reality of language and structure, what passes for ‘logic’, and the general ‘physical’ world perspective. It decodes information encoded in the energetic fabric of our reality into sequence to give us the illusion of ‘time’ passing from ‘past’ to future’, while the right-brain knows that there is only the eternal ‘Now’.
The left hemisphere dominates especially in ‘academics’ and those who have passed through the ‘higher’ levels of the sausage machine that is bravely called ‘education’.
The whole global political and economic system is run by dark-suits trapped in left-brain reality. This is why we live in a left-brain society and the right-brain perspective is ridiculed or condemned as ‘crazy’. The human invaders in Avatar personify this left-brain domination.
They have no appreciation or understanding of the interconnected harmony and mutual respect between the Na’vi, animals, trees and plants. It is just mumbo-jumbo to them. The humans live in the ‘real world’ of physical ‘apartness’ with the philosophy of see-want-take. In this case, take the unobtainium.
If that means destroying the home and way of life of people who happen to live on the resource deposits that you want to make your fortune, then so be it. What does it matter? They are just primitive savages and we are only destroying a forest.
Who cares? Send the boys in.
The left-brain mentality has no empathy with the consequences for others of its actions, because empathy comes from making a connection to other expressions of life, be they people, trees, plants or animals, and putting yourself in their situation.
Left-brain prisoners can’t do this when they are decoding everything as ‘individual’ with only ’space’ in between. The right-brain knows that there is no ’space in between’ – only a single energetic field that connects us all.
It is this sense of, and literal, connection between all apparently ‘individual’ form that gives us a sense of empathy, the fail-safe system that prevents extreme behaviour and actions that cause suffering for others.
Without empathy, anything goes, and the Reptilian manipulation has specifically set out to disconnect us from right-brain reality to (a) stop us accessing far higher levels of awareness and intelligence, and (b) to suppress our sense of empathy.
You see this so clearly with those in the military that can pepper-bomb cities and fire missiles into civilian areas in the Gaza Strip without any emotional consequences for themselves over the death, destruction and suffering that they cause.
Once people are stripped of empathy they become robotic machines without feeling or compassion and so much military training is designed to do just that. So it is with the dark suits who manipulate and declare the wars and devastate the economies of target countries in places like Africa to line their own pockets.
The humans in Avatar are just like this, apart from the very few who ‘turned’ eventually. To the left-brain mentality (a village idiot compared with the right), it was all so simple.
We want the resources to make lots of money and those primitive blue people are living on top of them and won’t move. No problem, scramble the aircraft and let ‘em ‘ave it. The left-brain, to use a quote from the British writer, Oscar Wilde, knows the price of everything and the value of nothing.
Look around, it’s the world we live in.
The genetic and other manipulation has turned most of humanity into a terminal of the Reptilian hive mind, something I explain in great detail in the new book. Humans have become their oppressors in mind and mentality – just as they were meant to.
Or, at least, great swathes of them have. Others still have significant access to right-brain reality and their ranks are growing by the day as the awakening of human consciousness continues.
When I say ‘awakening’, I don’t mean that just the awareness of a conspiracy is confirmation that someone has opened the channels to the right-brain and ‘out there’. The conspiracy research arena is overwhelmingly a left-brain phenomenon. This is not a criticism, just an observation, and quite an obvious one when you look at it.
As you open the left-brain and the corpus callosum to right-brain information, awareness and perspective, it is your entire sense of self and reality that changes.
You are not the same person that you were before who has simply realised that a global conspiracy is going on. You are nothing like the person you were before. The game has changed, and the values and perspective of self and life are transformed.
In Avatar, the human (Reptilian) invaders are ousted from Pandora in a massive battle. It is an action-movie, so I guess they feel it necessary to have a technological and biological punch-up as the humans employ their advanced weaponry against the Na’vi’s knowledge of their environment and their connection with the animals that stampede in their support and the dragon-like creatures on which they fly.
But we don’t need violence to set us free. We need to open the right-side of the brain and reconnect with our true and infinite potential. Everything else comes from that. The manipulators have not worked so hard to close down that connection because it is a bit of fun.
They have done so because it is absolutely crucial – prime – to their ability to control. They are terrified that we will wake up and access that fantastic potential.
Put another way, left-brain or right? Or, even better, a balance of both
People who have experienced damage to the left brain have suddenly manifested extraordinary, or what we would call ’super-human’ abilities, as the potential of the right brain is unlocked.
But they are not ’super-human’; they are ‘natural human’ who have been able to break the ‘firewalls’ imposed upon ’suppressed human’. Incredible feats of mathematics, memory and other ‘miraculous’ skills are performed by even young children once damage has reduced the limiting-influence of the left-brain.
Many of them are known as ’savants’, children who have an amazing skill or skills while also having developmental problems, ‘mental retardation’, brain injury or disease. Around half of these so-called ’savants’ have autism.
They are accessing brain potentials that are dormant in the vast majority because of the Reptilian manipulation, and, therefore, they not only have incredible abilities, but often find it hard to function within left-brain society.
It seems to me that part of the problem is that when the right brain really opens, the left-brain can have its reality-circuits busted and can’t cope with that level of perception and energy.
Stephen Wiltshire, an ‘autistic savant’ in the UK, is a wonderful example of their extraordinary ‘gifts’. He was taken on a helicopter ride over London at the age of twelve for a BBC documentary in 1987 and was allowed to take no notes or photographs, not that he wanted to, or needed to.
He then proceeded to produce an amazingly accurate drawing of the city, as it looks from the air, and included more than 200 buildings – some of which had hundreds of windows accurately portrayed even though he didn’t have the ability to count because of his autism.
Stephen Wiltshire today
It was all done purely from memory and he later did the same in Rome. You can see Stephen’s work at www.stephenwiltshire.co.uk.
Daniel Tammet, another British ‘autistic savant’, can do mathematical calculations at computer-like speeds and can speak seven languages (at the last count). He learned Icelandic in a week and his language teacher described him as a ‘genius’ and ‘not human’.Oh, but he is very human – the human the Reptilians and their bloodlines are desperately trying to suppress, because they know that their game is up once we access even a fraction of who we really are.
That moment is getting closer ever day.
Maurice Kirk won his court case and went back to jail.. check out his story
Great news from the dark Principality of Wales!
Maurice Kirk won his court case and defeated the sad attempt at prosecution for going armed with a 1st World War DH Biplane…………….
But he returned seeking to obtain his papers and was arrested again on charges of attempted burglary and banged up again by the plods. He next appears in the Welsh court on the 24th February when the attempt to send him to Broadmoor for ever and ever will start all over again!!!!!
Anybody who thinks they have the balls or stamina to challenge the whole damned stupid and corrupt system should read Maurice Kirk’s blog site Here before going to bed every night – and it should be part of the essential School Curriculum for all students.
You want to protest about corruption in Jersey? Read and understand Maurice Kirk first.

Maurice back in Court on 16th Feb
I left 8 months of sheer terror, culminating in a wicked sham of a British trial and went back to Caswell Clinic to demand my FOA and DP ACTS paid for medical records.
I was arrested for 'attempted burglary'!
The police kept me the maximum time allowed and at 11 at night 2 psychiatrists and a social worker of suitable rank arrived in my cell and proceeded to interrogate me for well over an hour with the view of a Section to a lunatic assylum without trial....deja vu?
Near 1am I was informed I had, effectively, won that round.
I was later released and charged with Public Order, Sect 5 and 'obstruction'! I had to agree to report twice a week at Barry police station live at 52, Tynewydd Rd Barry , currently for sale and attend Barry hearing for 24th Feb 10 am.
I was originally given unconditional bail by Barry magistrates, in June 2009, for 'possession of a machine gun', only for it only for my freeedom being reversed by 10 successive Cardiff Crown Court judges each using a different excuse, each time, following my proving each of their arguements were based on a sheer pack of lies. The gun charge, like the proverbial 'lead Zeppilin', had no way to go but down, as the rule of law (1988 Act and 1968 Firearms Act etc etc) was obvious to the lot of them in the first place.
What did the french man say? "when the government is wrong, it is dangerous to be right"
The whole issue arose from the Chief Constable's erroneous 25th Feb 2009 sworn afffidavit denying court cases and police break ins to my veterinary surgeries had ever taken place.
Robert Green represents the mother of Hollie Greig, a 30-year-old woman with Down’s Syndrome who has had her efforts to inform the public of her decade of sexual abuse by a Scottish sheriff, police officers and social workers thwarted by those in positions of power.
Robert had gone to Aberdeen to campaign for 'Justice For Hollie' and to announce his intention to stand for election there as an MP on the single issue of Hollie’s case. Somehow, Grampian Police traced Robert to his B&B, and on Friday February 12th am arrested him on his way to hand out flyers, for 'Breach Of The Peace' and handed his key back to the proprietor – clearly indicating they intended to keep him for some time.
It's firmly believed that Green was granted bail on Tuesday the 16th of February but it is suspected that a gag order has been placed on his communications with media in an effort to prevent the case continuing to gather momentum. We strongly hope, that you don't allow that to happen.
This video seems to be working for now but it seems they are being deleated...
We had hoped to feature the video of Robert Green's talk within this article but concerted efforts are being made to censor them from the public. When it is possible to provide them we will act accordingly.
In the meantime there are a number of ways that you can help bring this important issue of abuse to the attention of those around you. There has been two threads of great importance entered within the General Section of the TPUC Forum, one of which is designed to generate avenues with which to publicise and promote awareness, and the other to keep the user informed of all developments surrounding both Greens arrest and case news in general.
Please try and support this family in whichever way you can. We have some particularly promising evidence that will ensure that those responsible aren't able to escape facing justice for any crimes committed. The volume of the public who are aware of the particulars surrounding these crimes determine how easy it will be for mainstream media to continue to ignore this information, so we would encourage you greatly to inform as many people as possible.

This podcast is a leading source for intelligent, hard-nosed skeptic vs. believer debate on science and spirituality. Each episode features lively discussion with leading researchers, thinkers, and their critics.
Alex Tsakiris, host of Skeptiko, is a successful entrepreneur turned science philanthropist and podcaster. In May of 2007 he founded Open Source Science, a non-profit project for funding controversial science experiments. The effort has earned praise from a wide spectrum of scientists including skeptic Dr. Michael Shermer, and noted parapsychology researcher Dr. Dean Radin. He’s appeared on syndicated radio talk shows both in the US and the UK.
The most comprehensive research into near-death experience deals a kill shot to skeptics and aims to change how science views the afterlife.
Science has studied the near-death experience for more than 20 years. Most research has concluded NDEs are real and unexplainable, but scientists have been slow to accept consciousness beyond death. A new scientific study by Jeffrey Long, M. D. may change that. The research compiled in his new book, Evidence of the Afterlife, represents the largest, most comprehensive study of near-death experience and according to the study’s author is, “a real game-changer”.
Dr. Long explains, “we looked at nine lines of evidence that indicate the reality of near-death experiences and their consistent message of an afterlife. With each of these lines of evidence we carefully reviewed all prior scholarly research on the subject and made our contributions with our original research… from my point of view, the scientific term is compelling, but you can put it another way — the nine lines of evidence that I present is proof of the reality of near-death experiences.”
The conclusions of Dr. Long’s research are paradigm smashing for near-death experience skeptics who’ve argued that limited brain functioning may explain NDEs. “What near-death experiencers see correlates to their time of cardiac arrest and it is almost uniformly accurate in every detail. That pretty much refutes the possibility that these could be illusionary fragments, or unreal memories associated with hypoxia, chemicals, REM intrusion, anything that could cause brain dysfunction”, Dr. Long stated.
“I looked at over 280 near-death experiences that had out-of-body observations of Earthly ongoing events… If near-death experiences were just fragments of memory, unrealistic remembrances of a time approaching unconsciousness or returning from unconsciousness, there is no chance that the observations would have a high percent of completely accurate observations. They’d be dream-like or hallucinations. But 98% of them were entirely realistic… In fact, these observations of Earthly ongoing events often include observations of things that would be impossible for them to be aware of with any sensory function from their physical body. For example, they can see the tops of buildings. They can see far away. In my study over 60 of these near-death experiencers later went back and independently attempted to verify what they saw in the out-of-body state. Every single one of these over 60 near-death experiencers that reported checking or verifying their own observations found that they were absolutely correct in every detail.”, Dr. Long said.
While some near-death experience researchers have been reluctant to make the leap from NDEs to proof of the afterlife, Dr. Long is convinced by his research findings, “I’ve gone over every skeptic argument I can get my hands on. At the end of the day, I have no doubt in my mind near-death experience is for real. It’s a profound and reassuring message that we all have an afterlife. Every single one of us. And it’s wonderful. It is probably the greatest thrill of my life to be able to carry forward that important message to the world. I wouldn’t do it if I weren’t absolutely convinced that it’s correct.”
The conclusions of this research will be controversial, but Dr. Long stands ready to take on the critics, “I would be delighted to debate any near-death experience skeptic, any time, any place, on any media, as long as they’re scholarly, well informed, and as long as it can be a very high-level, intellectual debate.”
Jeffrey Long, M.D., is a physician practicing the specialty of radiation oncology (use of radiation to treat cancer) in Houma, Louisiana. Dr. Long has served on the Board of Directors of IANDS (International Association for Near-Death Studies), and is actively involved in NDE research. His book, Evidence of the Afterlife (HarperCollins), was published in 2010.

Peter Taylor from Ethos UK joins us to talk about The Corporatization of the Environmental Movement, The Fraud of Cap and Trade, Al Gore, the Computer Models Predicting Global Warming and his experience of how Greenpeace and other Environmental Organizations have been hijacked. Peter provides the ecological science background for the Ethos team. He has extensive experience of research and policy analysis across a wide field of environmental issues, having advised governments, the European Commission, and UN organizations. He has made a significant contribution to international treaties on ocean protection and the development of the precautionary principle. Recent work has included consultancy to UK government agencies and non-government organizations on renewable energy policy and rural issues (he sits on the National Advisory Group for the Community Renewables Initiative (a joint Countryside Agency and DTI program).
Visualising Renewable Energy in the Landscape
The Countryside Agency commissioned Ethos to produce a series of images using virtual reality software.
The project focussed on the kinds of choices faced by communities as Britain begins to take responsibility for sustainable energy supplies and efficient use of natural resources.
Ethos designed and produced a presentation pack which contained a multimedia CD with animated walk-throughs, fly-throughs, hi-resolution images and a Powerpoint presentation, and printed material outlining the issues and displaying the images.

Is anti-Semitism a scare tactic used by right-wing Zionists or an effective mind control program to whitewash the Palestinian genocide?
Two fly on the wall documentaries that need to be watched with an open mind.
Israeli director Yoav Shamir embarks on a provocative and at times irreverent quest to answer the question, “What is anti-Semitism today?” Does it remain a dangerous and immediate threat? Or is it a scare tactic used by right-wing Zionists to discredit their critics? Speaking with an array of people from across the political spectrum (including the head of the Anti-Defamation League and its fiercest critic, author Norman Finkelstein) and traveling to places like Auschwitz (alongside Israeli school kids) and Brooklyn (to explore reports of violence against Jews), Shamir discovers the realities of anti-Semitism today. His findings are shocking, enlightening and – surprisingly – often wryly funny.
Machssomim (Checkpoint) is a documentary from Israel that tells a simple story through checkpoints in the occupied territories around Israel.
First they came for the communists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a communist;
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a trade unionist;
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew;
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak out for me.
Show Your Support the People of Iceland
Iceland may be the first Western democracy to be forced into South-American style debt-slavery. The IMF, in concert with the UK and the Netherlands, has attempted to strongarm the recently impoverished Island of 317,000 into paying over 3.6 billion pounds ($6.3bn) -- $86,000 per Icelandic family -- at 5.5% interest for the next generation. The money is not conventional government debt, but arises from the collapse of a private multi-national bank during the financial crisis.
The issue is so serious that the entire nation will vote on the issue towards the end of February 2010.
On December 30, 2009, after extraordinary diplomatic threats, Iceland's parliament passed narrowly a bill agreeing to pay the onerous terms. Only a few months earlier parliament had agreed to the full amount, but under more reasonable conditions.
The people of Iceland must be internationally supported, so they can feel safe in voting down debt-slavery. If Iceland falls, it won't be long before other countries suffer similar financial extortion.
The people of Iceland have made a stand against the corrupt central banking system that has enslaved the world to contrived debt and they desperately need the support of the people of the world.
Think Iceland is insignificant? Well think again folks because what happens there will soon be mirrored in other countries around the globe, including yours.
YOU can make a difference in this issue, and it truly is an issue that really does affect each and every one of us on the most basic level.
The weight of an international campaign could be the very thing that turns the tide in their favor.
Please support these brave people in their endeavor to gain freedom from financial slavery by visiting the link below and signing the petition.

This site offers a reward to people attempting a peaceful citizen’s arrest of the former British prime minister, Tony Blair, for crimes against peace. Anyone attempting an arrest which meets the rules laid down here will be entitled to one quarter of the money collected at the time of his or her application.
Money donated to this site will be used for no other purpose than to pay bounties for attempts to arrest Tony Blair. All administration and other costs, apart from any charges added to your donations by Paypal, Tipit or the other banking services you might use, will be paid by the site’s founder.
The intention is to encourage repeated attempts to arrest the former prime minister. We have four purposes:
- To remind people that justice has not yet been done.
- To show Mr Blair that, despite his requests for people to “move on” from Iraq, the mass murder he committed will not be forgotten.
- To put pressure on the authorities of the United Kingdom and the countries he travels through to prosecute him for a crime against peace, or to deliver him for prosecution to the International Criminal Court.
- To discourage other people from repeating his crime.
We have no interest in people’s motivation, as long as they follow the rules laid down by this site. If they try to arrest Mr Blair because they care about the people he has killed, so much the better. But if they do it only for the money, that is fine too, and we will have encouraged an attempt which would not otherwise have taken place.
The higher the bounty, the more people are likely to try to arrest Mr Blair. Please remember that the account will remain open, regardless of how many have already claimed a reward, so new donations will continue to encourage have-a-go heroes.
If, beyond 31st December 2010, a bounty is claimed when the total fund has fallen below £500, the successful claimant will take the whole pot, which we will then seek to replenish. The fund will remain open for as long as Mr Blair lives, or until he is officially prosecuted. If it still contains money after his death or prosecution, the remainder will be donated to one or more organisations campaigning for international justice, or used to pursue other people responsible for the Iraq war. You will be welcome to nominate recipients.
The Iraq war, which started in 2003, has caused the deaths of between 100,000 and one million people, depending on whose estimate you believe. Two men were ultimately responsible for the decision to start it: George W Bush and Tony Blair.
Bush and Blair claim that they were provoked into starting the war by the imminent threat Iraq presented to world peace. They further maintain that the war was legal. A series of leaked documents shows not only that these contentions are untrue, but that Bush and Blair knew they were untrue.
The Downing Street memo, a record of a meeting in July 2002, reveals that Sir Richard Dearlove, director of the UK’s foreign intelligence service MI6, told Blair that in Washington “Military action was now seen as inevitable. Bush wanted to remove Saddam, through military action, justified by the conjunction of terrorism and WMD. But the intelligence and facts were being fixed around the policy.”
The foreign secretary (Jack Straw) then told Mr Blair that “the case was thin. Saddam was not threatening his neighbours, and his WMD capability was less than that of Libya, North Korea or Iran.” He suggested that “we should work up a plan” to produce “legal justification for the use of force.” The Attorney-General told the prime minister that there were only “three possible legal bases” for launching a war: “self-defence, humanitarian intervention, or UNSC [Security Council] authorisation. The first and second could not be the base in this case.” Bush and Blair failed to obtain Security Council authorisation.
In other words the memo reveals that Blair knew that the decision to attack Iraq had already been made; that it preceded the justification, which was being retrofitted to an act of aggression; that the only legal reasons for an attack didn’t apply, and that the war couldn’t be launched without UN authorisation.
