Apocalypse Blair 147


While Gaza writhes in agony, Middle East Peace Envoy Tony Blair’s private jet last week was in Las Vegas and Los Angeles. Two months earlier Blair had certainly visited Las Vegas and Los Angeles on the same journey. In Las Vegas Blair was paid a large but undisclosed sum to attend a conference of hedge fund managers. His meetings in Los Angeles were “private”.

I have been unable to discover whether Blair was on his jet last week, or it was Cherie shopping or Alistair Campbell following up on the “business opportunities” for Blair from the July meetings. But he was not evidently in the Middle East. Just before the jet left for the USA he was in Britain hosting a lavish and deeply tasteless birthday party for his wife, two months before her birthday.

Yesterday the Guardian announced Blair’s new role as adviser to the Government of Azerbaijan, to add to the money he gets from advising Sisi of Egypt, Nazarbayev of Kazakhstan, numerous Gulf despots and any other dictator who does not realise that the Blair brand has become even more toxic than their own.

Blair’s attendance at the July conference of hedge fund managers was appropriate, as they are the epitome of the heartless irresponsibility and short term financial outlook of the new capitalism which Blair so heartily embraced. His fellow guest speaker at that conference was Francis Ford Coppola. I went to bed last night mulling this article and the aptness of combination of Tony Blair and Apocalypse Now.

Then I woke up this morning to the news that after twenty years of peace fighting had broken out between Blair’s brand new client, Azerbaijan, and Armenia. The man really is cursed. Perhaps once you voluntarily brought so much war and terrible death, there is no way to stop. Apocalypse Blair. He should rename that private jet The Four Horsemen.

    Well, I trusted the Lancet then, and I trust them now.

    You believe what you like, Je. As I said… body count certainly does matter – historically at least – because it helps to show the enormity of the crime. This might be worth a thread of its own.

  • nevermind, it will happen anyway

    Gary, thanks for your first post. you are experiencing the facts of minority party politics, in allegiance with the establishment and status quo.
    Put your faith into principled people who think and communicate their ideas, who live near you, have a deep love yo your respective locality and who do not need the existing stale party political edifice to speak their mind.

    Party politics has got us where we are, listen to the silence… can ye hear it? it shouts loud and clear that Israel decides what is news here and what is not, it has been passed by the fat controler and the boys in charge rather accuse each other of playing party politics, halleluja a revellation, they have acknowledged its a game, than to be the first to criticise ytis rogue state we created.

    Israel needs therapy, some propose sanctions and contemplation, who am I to reject these ideas on the ground out of hand. Publicising and recognising a mistake, publicising a skewed view on eliminating people, when it clearly is a violation to breach these rules set by previous judgements, is manmaging consent and directing military action on a the basis of profane nationalist fervour. nowt to do with ebola, but similar it seems. Hang around Gary.

    I wonder if Blair is just plain evil. I’m not religious, so the concept of evil is a curious one to me, but one thing I do know is that evil doesn’t really announce itself. You know, evil doesn’t come with a nice t-shirt saying ‘I’m a terrible person’ or ‘you can’t vote for me, I have various personality disorders’. Nope, evil people can be – have to be – very plausible and charming, for a while at least, even if our human ‘sense’ tells us they ‘smell wrong. I’ve never been awfy convinced by Blair, but I certainly, in the early days, would have him down more as a chancer than a bad man.

    He does say and do very weird things. And the internet has some very odd tales about him, which I used to dismiss. And all that stuff about Iraq and blackmail, well I used to dismiss that too. But old Blairy pops up in the company of the most dismal people on the planet, is welcomed, takes his money, and thinks nothing of it. Another thing I’ve learned about psychopaths, from ‘Political Ponerology’ – they recognise each other from an early age. Blair is just a globe-trotting emissary from planet psychopath, and his patina of plausibility is useful to his dark-overlords, for a time at least. Can’t last though.

  • Peacewisher

    OK. Final post on this from me, Je. The difference between Iraq Body Count and the other surveys is rather well explained in this article:

    http://www.theguardian.com/world/2008/mar/19/iraq

    which puts the survey providers head-to-head. At that time, Iraq Body Count were reporting less than 100000. Their sampling techniques require actual recorded deaths, and in war it is reasonable to assume that some bodies are unrecognisable, or dumped in water, or simply buried without reporting.

    It would therefore be somewhat dishonest for Iraq Body Count to suggest that this is total civilians deaths, without some kind of indicator that there may also be an unknown number of additional, unregistered deaths. Their individual researchers (and I wouldn’t want to criticise any sincere researcher!) would be well aware of this, but the website could make it clearer.

    This is a macabre subject I know.

    we get so Little escape from the EVIL FUCKERS that rule us…Where to look…So many places they want to Destroy then Own.. Good though, Eventually see Gabriel, Eno..Joining Rodger Waters. bit late but at last… Crushing the senses

    Dear All of You:

    I sense I’m breaking an unspoken rule with this letter, but I can’t keep quiet any more.

    Today I saw a picture of a weeping Palestinian man holding a plastic carrier bag of meat. It was his son. He’d been shredded (the hospital’s word) by an Israeli missile attack – apparently using their fab new weapon, flechette bombs. You probably know what those are – hundreds of small steel darts packed around explosive which tear the flesh off humans. The boy was Mohammed Khalaf al-Nawasra. He was 4 years old.

    I suddenly found myself thinking that it could have been one of my kids in that bag, and that thought upset me more than anything has for a long time.

    Then I read that the UN had said that Israel might be guilty of war crimes in Gaza, and they wanted to launch a commission into that. America won’t sign up to it.

    What is going on in America? I know from my own experience how slanted your news is, and how little you get to hear about the other side of this story. But – for Christ’s sake! – it’s not that hard to find out. Why does America continue its blind support of this one-sided exercise in ethnic cleansing? WHY? I just don’t get it. I really hate to think its just the power of AIPAC… for if that’s the case, then your government really is fundamentally corrupt. No, I don’t think that’s the reason… but I have no idea what it could be.

    I was in Israel last year with Mary. Her sister works for UNWRA in Jerusalem. Showing us round were a Palestinian – Shadi, who is her sister’s husband and a professional guide – and Oren Jacobovitch, an Israeli Jew, an ex-major from the IDF who left the service under a cloud for refusing to beat up Palestinians. Between the two of them we got to see some harrowing things – Palestinian houses hemmed in by wire mesh and boards to prevent settlers throwing shit and piss and used sanitary towels at the inhabitants; Palestinian kids on their way to school being beaten by Israeli kids with baseball bats to parental applause and laughter; a whole village evicted and living in caves while three settler families moved onto their land; an Israeli settlement on top of a hill diverting its sewage directly down onto Palestinian farmland below; The Wall; the checkpoints… and all the endless daily humiliations. I kept thinking, “Do Americans really condone this? Do they really think this is OK? Or do they just not know about it?”.

    AnyHoo…More on this piec @

  • harry law

    Whenever I see Blair, I am reminded of the conversation between Karl Malden [the sheriff] and Marlon Brando [the prisoner] in ‘one eyed jack’s’ when Malden said.. “We are going to give you a fair trial, and then we are going to hang you” Sounds fair enough to me in Blair’s case.

  • Ben-American Fascist Flechette

    Heh. Maybe ‘rule of thumb’ was a poor analogy. That rule was propounded by legalists who felt the only correct and legal method of beating your wife was with a stick no thicker than your thumb. Mea culpa.

    Instead might I substitute ‘correct lawfiul and ethical as well as moral foundation’? It doesn’t quite roll off the tongue, but it is more accurate.

    You believe what you like, Je. As I said… body count certainly does matter – historically at least – because it helps to show the enormity of the crime. This might be worth a thread of its own.

    This is how the revisionists distort the history and keep on killing on, on, on, on,…….

    Every shell that is fired, every bomb dropped and every mortar fired has an effective kill radius that is known and taken account of at the planning stages of the attack. Those shells each costing upwards of £1000 each are used effectively to kill injure and maim. Less said about rocket starting from £11000 and going up to millions as in case of the Cruise missiles.

    The amount of ordnance poured on Iraq in the first three weeks of the operation had already passed the total amounts of bombs dropped on Germany over a four years period.

    Those butchers, killers, planning and executing the mass murder, and those supposed “informed” who use the figures of Bu$h Cheney; surprisingly have a common ground; to avoid getting bugged down in the numbers game!

    Fact that the sandniggers were killed in their millions is to be further discounted because these untermensch don’t count as whole persons and are only fractions of a person!!

    The liberal traditions of “accuracy” allows for the forces of reaction gaming the system as in the case of Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, and Palestine as we write.

    Before the Iraq war was started as per the cowboy traditions of Saddam get out of Dodge or we are a coming to get you! For days before the dead line, up in the northern Iraq B52 bombers were relentlessly carpet bombing the Iraqi positions, and effectively killing all of those in position to counter the attacks from that area. Gaby Rado saw it all and he never reported, poor bastard was dropped in the long tradition of killing those who can talk out of turn, he paid for it with his life.

    Why do you think the Iraqi army was disbanded? Any recall of the army the figures of the dead Iraqi soldiers would have come out, in the traditions of keeping the mass murder quiet, the Iraqi army was disbanded and we were told there is no longer an Iraqi army!

    Lancet was just tip of the iceberg, the number of refugees numbering five million, and the subsequent murder fest in Iraq has been kept quiet. As the tanks were running over the ruins of Mesopotamia to eradicate the Iraqi nations historical legacy, so the medjia were busy colluding in discounting the genocide that had taken place.

    But of course as ever the rats knackers have won, because no one wants to get bugged down in numbers game, not unless it is a certain other tribe that numbers matter very much.

    The blanket of lies are making the latter day Mongol hoards reasonable marauders and not the ugly mass murdering privateers that they truly are.

    After all, Hamas (Allende) was elected democratically.

    http://www.truth-out.org/opinion/item/25343-noam-chomsky-%7C-nightmare-in-gaza

    The media constantly intone that Hamas is dedicated to the destruction of Israel. In reality, Hamas leaders have repeatedly made it clear that Hamas would accept a two-state settlement in accord with the international consensus that has been blocked by the U.S. and Israel for 40 years.
    In contrast, Israel is dedicated to the destruction of Palestine, apart from some occasional meaningless words, and is implementing that commitment.
    The crime of the Palestinians in January 2006 was punished at once. The U.S. and Israel, with Europe shamefully trailing behind, imposed harsh sanctions on the errant population and Israel stepped up its violence.
    The U.S. and Israel quickly initiated plans for a military coup to overthrow the elected government. When Hamas had the effrontery to foil the plans, the Israeli assaults and the siege became far more severe.
    There should be no need to review again the dismal record since. The relentless siege and savage attacks are punctuated by episodes of “mowing the lawn,” to borrow Israel’s cheery expression for its periodic exercises in shooting fish in a pond as part of what it calls a “war of defense.”
    Once the lawn is mowed and the desperate population seeks to rebuild somehow from the devastation and the murders, there is a cease-fire agreement. The most recent cease-fire was established after Israel’s October 2012 assault, called Operation Pillar of Defense

    Well thank fuck that load of shite is over. No disrespect to any athletes taking part, especially the road-race cyclists, but what a pathetic spectacle Brenda Battenburg’s (an oligarch, posing delusionally as ‘queen’) Bestest Ever School Sports was, book-ended by lashings of vulgar kitsch. An utterly pointless waste of materials and human effort to achieve exactly fuck all, sums up the whole thing in a nutshell, an outlet for over-active underachievers’ energies. Cringe inducing: Lulu, Susan Boyle, Rod Stewart, Kylie fucking Minogue -what fools delivered up this bin-lorry load of 80s (and 60s) tartanised tarts to trot out their middle-of-road unpopular ‘turns’ and missed the clear purple-lines down the road and the turning for the geriatric ward. Give us an eternal break now from synthetic keech (and the real stuff), wind-down the commonwealth delusions and let us unhitch our respective countries from the Anglo-US-Israeli war machine as it heads over a cliff onto the rocks far below, though the over-whelming guilt will outlast even the nations who once steered that hideous monster. There were bad-guys, real rotters amongst us for whom no redemption could ever be possible, the stain on their consciences is indelible, they took our names and used it for ill, we’ll take it back now and pursue those responsible to the ends of the earth and encourage them to perish by their own hand, for their greedy gulps from the cup of purest evil, draining it to the last drop and incubating it within to multiply.

    Circus over, bread still in short supply, pockets empty. Finally we can get back to the fascist empire’s war on humanity, in Palestine (conspicuously not a Commonwealth member or games participant, odd that), in Iraq, in Syria, in Ukraine and wherever else the would-be bastards of the universe might be unleashing their terror on hapless defenceless innocents, in the name of big oil, corporation x, y and z’s majority shareholders and inadequate moronic bullying political imbecilic grinning political frontmen: the Blairs, the Thatchers, the Camerons, Hagues (what happened to him, no comment from the blogs host there, golden-boy turned liability or too scandalous to mention?) and the Parliaments, Congresses and other pretendy assemblies of the fascist axis, going through the motions, playing their role in the well-staged fictions called democracy, type-cast wooden planks, the oligarchs’ puppets mouth their weasel words.

    Israel: its biggest export is terrorism, its sole import is other people’s and countries’ wealth and its currency (apparently) human organs, raw and cooked. That it is toast, the last outing for its hired and conscript killers, was a criminal insult to constructive human endeavour, is the dawning conclusion. The inevitable, just outcome, the only outcome is leaving Palestine bloodied but unbeaten, back to New York, Europe and the hinterland of Russia, to raise hell, and claim victimhood somewhere else, for the settler armies, the thieves, butchers and murderers hiding behind religion and other fantasies of defective amoral unevolved recidivist minds. Enough is enough, it’s over.

    I cannot help correlate the protracted closure of occupied Palestine’s zionist held airport, with the relative absence of any ‘terror’ attacks anywhere in the world for the duration, except the concentrated terrorising and killing of the people herded into the Gaza concentration camp and slaughtered for Israel’s nutjob (the majority) audience’s entertainment. Sleep not soundly those who revel in death, weep for what might have been, of all possible futures, you chose the worst and now must live with its consequences, no hoax, this time for real, for all are backing away from this vile enterprise, none would lift a finger voluntarily when it ends messily as it must.

    As the vile occupying regime in Palestine fades away, we must never allow such to rise ever again, fascism is never defeated fully and sprouts up in the unlikeliest places, the present strains are well known, shallow-rooted and cannot survive without nurture.

    Fascism’s seed was planted in London, in Washington, in Tel Aviv. But water, air and sunlight are not all it needs to thrive, it needs us to stand idly by, say nothing till the horrors we’ve witnessed, the cruelty the taking of precious unique lives might seem as if a prelude to what such tyrannical rule unchecked is yet capable of. Gaza is all our fates, all our futures if we do not throw our rogue leaders into the abyss with their guns and their bombs and other useless junk that exist only to kill not the other, but us. We all, a part of us all died in Gaza, while SuBo, LuLu and Kylie epically failed to mask the pain we all felt, hurting deep inside, for Gaza, for Palestine.

    Tony Blair in Los Vegas – No one should be surprised. Las Vegas has become Vatican for all pro-Israel Christian politicians, where the meet billionaire pope Adelson.

    Azerbaijan is equally a good choice. Azerbaijan’s king Ilham Aliyev is a close US-Israel ally against Iran.

    Baku and Tel Aviv established close working relations in intelligence sharing and a defensive platform for the Zionist entity in April 1992 – one year after its independence from USSR. Middle East International (October 23, 1992) reported supply of Israeli arms to Azerbaijan via Turkey. Ilya Bourtman writing in Middle East Quarterly (Summer 2006) wrote: “At the heart of Azerbaijan-Israel coperation lies their fear and distrust of Iran. Israel has obvious reasons (??) for distrusting the Islamic Republic……Azerbaijan has more complicated relations with Iran. On one hand Azerbaijan shares historic ties and a religious bond with Shi’ite Iran. For more Azeris live in Iran than in independent Azerbaijan…..Today, Iran and Israel play a cat and mouse game in Azerbaijan. Both has developed vast espionage networks in Azerbaijan. Israeli intelligence maintains surveillance and listening outposts on Azerbaijan border with Iran….”

    Last January 2009, Israeli Mossad faked a planned attack on Israeli embassy in Baku – and interestingly – instead of blaming Al-Qaeda, as a rule – blamed Lebanese resistance Hizbullah!

    Tony_0pmoc —

    amazingly, Breitbart has published Booker’s amazing column, which the Tele censored. not that they necessarily agree with him, (nor do some who comment), but they believe in his right to be heard –

    Breitbart: The Column the Telegraph Was Afraid to Publish: Israel Identifies ‘Race with Right’
    Christopher Booker has been at the top of British journalism since the 1960s, and this weekend he has given another demonstration why. Booker’s weekly column in the Sunday Telegraph, the most-read column in the paper, was pulled at 6 pm on Saturday night by editorial control.
    Booker had written a piece on Israel – about “the mockery of Israel’s claim to be a proper democracy” and its “rigid identification of race with right” — that was bound to get a sharp reaction.
    Clearly the editors at the Telegraph were afraid it would be too sharp.
    However, Breitbart London has learned that Booker has been given permission for his column to appear on websites, so here is the full text of the column the Telegraph thought was too hot to handle.
    We, unlike the Telegraph, leave it to our readers to decide for themselves…
    Christopher Booker: The Tragedy of Gaza was all foreshadowed in the Bible….etc
    http://www.breitbart.com/Breitbart-London/2014/08/03/The-column-the-Telegraph-was-afraid-to-publish-Israel-identifies-race-with-right

    Richard North/EU Referendum also has reservations, but also believes Booker has the right to be heard –

    EU Referendum: Booker: the tragedy of Gaza
    by Richard North
    Israel is one of the very few issues over which Booker and I are not in full accord, but I was nevertheless looking forward to seeing the response to the column this week, telling myself that it was going to get pretty sharp reaction.
    So sharp has been the reaction, though, that it has not even been able to get through the editorial filter. At the very last minute, with no time at all to provide a replacement, it has been pulled from the newspaper and will not appear in the print version or online.
    Thus, the only place you will find Booker’s column this week is on this blog (and now on Breitbart – ed), and I have thus decided to publish it below, verbatim, as it would have appeared in the newspaper and the web page…

    Cameron too is covering himself with the cow dung of pusilanimity by failing to match the words of Ban Ki-Moon describing the massacre of innocent Palestinian people as “a moral outrage and a criminal act” and “yet another gross violation of international humanitarian law”.

    Even US State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said the US was appalled by the “disgraceful shelling”.

    When, oh when is the present government of the UK, my country, going to take a stand and occupy the high moral ground on this despicable conflict? Not any time soon as long as the Tory slimebags and their “supporters” have a stranglehold on political power here.

    Part of the answer is here:

    http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2014/aug/03/david-cameron-dilemma-criticising-israel-gaza-offensive

    On the other hand, there are still very many Conservative MPs who are firmly behind Israel’s efforts to take out Hamas, while others are simply keen not to make any public statements on the issue, partly for fear of provoking the pro-Israel lobby.

    “If you’re looking for an explanation of why the government and many MPs have been quite so pusillanimous … go no further than the reaction to Hague in 2006, when he had temerity to call Israeli action disproportionate. There was opprobrium poured all over William,” said one former Tory minister, who would like to see the government condemn Israel’s shelling of Gaza but believes that is highly unlikely.”

    I demand to know of David Cameron and the Tory high command today who was responsible for pouring opprobium all oer William Hague at that time???

    Any thoughts on this, Craig???

    VIDEO: Press TV – Israel’s proposed truce to divert attention: Hamas
    Israel had earlier said it would hold its fire in most of the Gaza Strip for a seven-hour window on Monday.
    According to a statement by the Israeli army, the ceasefire will take place between 7 a.m. and 14 p.m. GMT in the Palestinian enclave, besides the east of the southern city of Rafah, “where clashes were still ongoing.” ….
    The air, sea and land strikes have so far killed nearly 1,840 Palestinians and injured over 9,300 others….

    today at RT – no surprise really. it is obvious the US cannot be an honest broker in bringing about the end of the Israeli occupation of Palestine, so what next? what use is the UN General Assembly? the role of Blair as a peace envoy is equally absurd. something has to give…

    RT – Obama’s ‘helplessness’ an act: Snowden reveals scale of US aid to Israel
    The turmoil gripping the Middle East is a direct result of the provision of cash, weapons and surveillance to Israel by the US, the latest Snowden leak illustrates. Obama’s “helpless detachment” is just for show, the Intercept’s Glenn Greenwald writes….
    Greenwald has published his analysis of the latest leaked Edward Snowden document, wherein it’s explained just how false the notion that the US is a bystander to the Middle Eastern crisis really is.
    In fact, “the single largest exchange between NSA and ISNU is on targets in the Middle East which constitute strategic threats to US and Israeli interests,” the leaked paper reveals.
    It goes on to show that both intelligence services have liaison officers in each other’s embassies, enjoy a “crpytanalytic” partnership, and that Israel has direct access to the highest American military technology. Greenwald supplements this with proof of millions in emergency US funds stockpiled in the Middle East, which Israel can use for its own regional purposes by simply writing a request….
    A bulk of this assistance has been used to fight its battles with occupied Palestine – including the Gaza operation, as well as other regional players….
    “The new documents underscore the indispensable, direct involvement of the US government and its key allies in Israeli aggression against its neighbors. That covert support is squarely at odds with the posture of helpless detachment typically adopted by Obama officials and their supporters,” Greenwald bluntly states….
    And this cooperation dates back to the late 1960s, while expanded greatly in 2003….
