Ken Wiwa, dead at 47

Quote:

He was the eldest son of Ken Saro-Wiwa, an activist for the Ogoni people who was one of nine people executed by Nigeria’s military government in 1995 after they campaigned against the oil multinational Royal Dutch Shell for polluting the Niger Delta with its vast network of pipelines and oil fields. Their secret trials and executions sparked global condemnation and led to Nigeria’s suspension from the Commonwealth.

Should Iraq War report get its own thread?

There are already "bombs" going off about the forthcoming Chilcot report, which stands to implicate Bush, Blair and lots of people in the UK, US and elsewhere who supported the war on Iraq (including Hillary Clinton, and some right-wing Labourites). I don't want to create more thread proliferation, but think this might warrant its own thread. What do others think?

The Chilcot Inquiry: The final judgement on Tony Blair

...from Middle East Monitor....

 

It’s unlikely that the Chilcot Inquiry will provide meaning to an enormous personal loss, but will it at least heal the political and social trauma caused by Tony Blair? To mend Iraq’s wounds in any meaningful way there has to be a sense that justice has been seen to be done for what was a deception of enormous magnitude and consequence. The final judgement of Tony Blair has to be nigh.......

May all the war criminals receive their final justice...let us remember the war criminals in Canada responsible for the wars in Libya and The Autonomous Republics of Ukraine!
