Much has been debated over Tony Blair’s strategy in positioning an ‘old Labour’ mind that was Robin Cook into a cult called ‘New Labour’. The overwhelming consensus reached can also be said of John Prescott, with most agreeing Tony Blair determined to keep those he believed had respect from the Labour supporters as he gained office, with the aim of positioning them in the cabinet to remove the sharp edge of his sword about to cut to pieces the basic foundation of the Labour party, or to put it another way… he played a serious deception to keep the party faithful on side as he destroyed the last bastion of political connection to the man on the street that old labour was.
Blair had no problem from John Prescott who took to his apportioned role in ‘Blair power’ like a duck to water, happy to fill his face with liquids and foodstuffs and shout in his obligatory fashion at any sign of descent from the Blair line. Robin Cooke however was a different story altogether.
Michael Meacher and Claire Short, both fell foul of the cheshire cat and were swiftly removed, but Robin as an intelligent and respected man by his piers, and by the party faithful, had hit the real Blair agenda square in the mouth when he said :
“The truth is, there is no Islamic army or terrorist group called Al Qaeda.”
Tony Blair was war, and remains a man of war, Tony Blair’s real agenda was war in the Middle East and as we know well, he got his wars.
Two people who stood in the way of Blair’s war agenda would be Robin Cooke and Dr. David Kelly. Both men died in very mysterious circumstances on the back of information they had that would have without doubt stopped the drive to war.
Robin Cooke some four weeks after the following public declaration, died :
” The truth is, there is no Islamic army or terrorist group called Al Qaeda. And any informed intelligence officer knows this. But there is a propaganda campaign to make the public believe in the presence of an identified entity representing the devil only in order to drive the TV watcher to accept a unified international leadership for a war against terrorism. The country behind this propaganda is the US.”
Robin Cook is also attributed as the author of the following :
Al-Qaida, literally “the database”, was originally the computer file of the thousands of Mujaheddin who were recruited and trained with help from the CIA to defeat the Russians.”
And is then backed up in a speech by the man believed to be behind President Barack Obama Zbigniew Brzezinski, when he told the Senate :
“Cook is merely confirming what others have said.”
“The war on terror is a mythical historical narrative.”
The Los Angeles Times reviewing a BBC documentary entitled “The Power of Nightmares,” which shows that the threat from Al Qaeda has been vastly overblown.
Not only has the U.S. government hyped Al Qaeda, but it has issued numerous fake terror alerts to scare people.
There is a word for intentionally creating fear in order to manipulate opinion for political ends: terrorism. Bin Laden was, though, a product of a monumental miscalculation by western security agencies. Throughout the 80s he was armed by the CIA and funded by the Saudis to wage jihad against the Russian occupation of Afghanistan. Al-Qaida, literally “the database”, was originally the computer file of the thousands of mujaheddin who were recruited and trained with help from the CIA to defeat the Russians Inexplicably, and with disastrous consequences, it never appears to have occurred to Washington that once Russia was out of the way, Bin Laden’s organisation would turn its attention to the west. “

The following video has a sinister twist as it is clear the majority of the House are with him, yet on they would go to sanction Tony Blair and his demand for war.
So have the warmongers had a change of heart or are they so brash that they have done the same with Syria and Iran?
