While speaking at St Andrews in Scotland, former UK ambassador revealed what had led to the Iraq war. Craig Murray spoke about the inquiry, which was investigating whether there were any weapons of mass destruction in Iraq prior to Tony Blair and the US invasion.
Murray worked for the British foreign office as a British ambassador who had served as a diplomat for 20 years.
The truth behind Iraq war according to Craig Murray:
The former UK ambassador says: “It was only six months after that I discovered that in the country where I was an ambassador, we and the Americans were shipping people in order for them to be tortured and some were tortured to death. Now as you may imagine my world view changed.”
“About a month later we invaded Iraq against the will of the security council. Not just without permission of the security council, but in the full knowledge that if it had gone to the security council we would have been voted down,” he revealed.
He said that as a British diplomat, he saw all the internal memos that went through that decision. He used to be the head of the FCO unit that monitored Iraqi weapons of mass destruction.
“I know for certain, I can tell, they knew there weren’t any. It wasn’t a mistake. It was a lie, what we did to Iraq was just like Hilter and Mussolini did to the nations. In Libya, we killed 15,000 people, is something which is never told in the media.”
He said that every bit of the system is corrupted as he had seen it on the inside. It’s almost always about control of resources, he said.
“The system stinks. Westminster stinks. British Government is deeply, deeply immoral. They don’t care how many people they kill abroad if it advances them,” he told.
He quoted Britain as a rogue state. “A state prepared to go to war to make a few people wealthy,” he said in the video below.
