Impeach Blair, says General Sir Michael Rose 2


Sir Michael Rose, the retired British army General who led United Nations forces in Bosnia has called for Tony Blair to be impeached for taking the country to war in Iraq on false grounds. Speaking on Radio 4’s Today programme, he said that Blair must not be allowed to “walk away”, and must be held accountable in order to deter future politicians from making the same mistakes. Asked whether he believed his views were shared by senior officers still serving in the army, Rose suggested that a “debate” had been going on.

Update (10/01): Many mainstream papers are now running with this story. A quote from the Guardian

“…people have seen their political wishes ignored for reasons that have now proved false. Nor has there been any attempt made in parliament to call Mr Blair personally to account for what has transpired to be a blunder of enormous strategic significance,” he writes.

It should not be surprising that “so many of the voters of this country have turned their backs on a democratic system which they feel has so little credibility and is so unresponsive”.
