Unbelievably, that quote came from Murdoch Mysteries too and the quote is very poignant.
Yes, the US have the attitude that as they are a super power and can do what they fucking want.
They created false information that took not only them to invade Iraq but they also drew in the UK and France too. WMDs, what WMDs? I am still utterly convinced that Blair always knew that it was false information, as he was so much up Bush’s arse that he would do anything that Bush wanted.
Just look at Iraq today. That phony war meant that American contractors made millions of dollars in so called rebuilding costs and security and, of course, the yanks got access to YET MORE OIL. If anyone thinks that it was not to do with oil, they are immensely naive and, if they believe that the UK government at the time, was not complicit in that venture, they were born under a rock. Blair is the most dishonest and crooked ex politician that I have ever come across. The current government is no better.
Yet, many hundreds of thousands of Iraqis died; whether they were connected to Saddam or not.
The yanks are supposed to be allies of the UK. If people in the UK think that in the event of a war that affects the UK, the yanks will come to the UK’s RESCUE, they are very sorely mistaken; in fact, those people were born under a rock.
If “the balloon does go up” and someone hits THAT button, probably the yanks themselves and likely to be Trump, does anyone really believe that the governments of each country will actually worry about the general population?
Remember that the yanks only came into the second world war was because they were invaded by Japan. If they had not been, they would have done bugger all to help the UK.
Of course, the governments will not care; after all, they will all be in their secret bunkers and they will be saved. They will argue that this has to happen so that governments of certain nations will be able to maintain order and rebuild their countries.
WHAT UTTER BOLLOCKS
If there is a third world war, there will be absolutely nothing left to govern; no infrastructure, no people, nothing.
THEY WILL ONLY BE DOING IT TO SAVE THEMSELVES AND THOSE WITH LOTS AND LOTS OF MONEY
