Long-Awaited Chilcot Report Shows US and UK Had No Reason to Invade Iraq

Chilcot report-compressed

By Claire Bernish | Activist Post

In a damning commentary on the rush to invade Iraq, Sir John Chilcot’s inquiry found “diplomatic options had not” at the time “been exhausted. Military action was therefore not a last resort” — as then Prime Minister Tony Blair led the people of the U.K. to believe.

While the Chilcot Report proffers scathing insight into the circumstances surrounding the U.K.’s part in one of the most contentious invasions of a sovereign state in modern times, findings dually skewer then U.S. President George W. Bush’s reckless rush to force military action.

“Military action might have been necessary later,” the BBC summarized several key points found by the Inquiry, “but in March 2003: There was no imminent threat from Saddam Hussein; The strategy of containment could have been adapted and continued for some time; The majority of the Security Council supported continuing UN inspections and monitoring.

“Judgments about the severity of the threat posed by Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction — known as WMD — were presented with a certainty that was not justified” and “Intelligence had ‘not established beyond doubt’ that Saddam Hussein had continued to produce chemical and biological weapons.”

Comprehensive in scope at 2.6 million words, the report covers the U.K.’s role in Iraq from 2001 to 2009, and includes preparations for the invasion, troop preparedness, the actual conflict, and the lack of forethought of the consequences — both in civilian and other casualties, as well as other repercussions — aggression would have on the country and region.

Chilcot investigated the nuanced codependent relationship between the U.S. and U.K. under the leadership of Bush and Blair, paraphrased by the BBC, “former prime minister Tony Blair overestimated his ability to influence US decisions on Iraq; and the UK’s relationship with the US does not require unconditional support.”

Though many expected the seven-year investigation to ‘whitewash’ widely-known mistakes in intelligence and support for the U.S. goal of “regime change,” Chilcot did not hesitate to keenly criticize the unjustified and heightened rush to initiate an all-out military assault — despite the report’s somewhat subdued language in doing so.

Nor does the report let either government off the hook for the enormity of the tragedy — in the civilian death toll, lack of planning for the aftermath in Iraq, nor in Blair’s capitulation to Bush’s bellicosity, despite lack of sufficient justification for war. Indeed, “despite explicit warnings, the consequences of the invasion were underestimated,” as the report’s Executive Summary states.

While the findings severely undercut the total number of Iraqi civilian noncombatants killed — at least 150,000 by July 2009 — Chilcot did admit the figure’s shortcomings.

Further, the report notes despite warnings about the potential for an invasion to destabilize the region — and what that ensuing stability might mean far into the future — Blair (and thus Bush, without stating as much) pressed the case for invasion past the point of disputability.

Additionally, Blair’s previous reluctance to involve the U.K. militarily in favor of forcing the Iraqi leader to accept the return of U.N. weapons inspectors, the report found, vanished following his visit to Bush’s Crawford, Texas, ranch. As it states:

Following his meeting with President Bush, Mr Blair stated that Saddam Hussein had to be confronted and brought back into compliance with the UN.

The acceptance of the possibility that the UK might participate in a military invasion of Iraq was a profound change in UK thinking. Although no decisions had been taken, that became the basis for contingency planning in the months ahead.

Flawed intelligence — the bulk of Bush’s justification for the invasion — should have been questioned by members of Parliament, but wasn’t, the report noted, adding the putative procedures determining legal justification for such an action were “far from satisfactory.”

Overall, the Blair-led government “failed to achieve its stated objectives.”

“If Tony Blair and other politicians responsible had told the truth it [the Iraq War] never would have happened,” asserted Kate Hudson, Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament general secretary and organizer of a massive protest, as cited by RT. “A country was destroyed, millions of innocent Iraqis were killed, British soldiers were killed, and terrorism has spread across the Middle East. Those responsible must now be brought to justice.”

In the years following the effectively unjustified invasion of Iraq, countless advocates, activists, and policy critics have issued calls for the summary prosecution of members of the Bush and Blair administrations for war crimes and/or crimes against humanity. Whether or not the Chilcot Inquiry’s findings will add sufficiently to the rather stunning case in favor of doing so remains to be seen — as do other potential repercussions — though it’s widely believed the report doesn’t quite go far enough to do so.

Indeed, by not making a summary judgment on legality, a seeming paradox has been created. While any judgment concerning legal issues in the Iraq War must be undertaken in a court of law, the report’s open hinting there could means for prosecution based on this evidence could be seen as allowing such proceedings — but contrarily could suggest the evidence to prosecute the politicians responsible isn’t sufficient.

Encompassing 12 full volumes — some 6,000 pages — the Chilcot Inquiry had been expected to take just two years — but instead took seven. Considering the sheer volume of information contained therein, it’s possible further revelations will become apparent in the days ahead.

  9. But everyone knows that already. What is to be done about it ?

  10. Hmmmmmm, what really prompted the war? 9/11, that’s just it, the can’t be guilty of war crime, they are leaders having to protect their people both by defending and offensive means.

      what about Rumsfeld’s announcement the day before 9/11 about the 3.2 trillion dollars that was missing from accounts not to mention the 2126 cases of insider trading that were being investigated and their investigative offices were inside the world trade centers. & what about the owner of the world trade center building who miraculously happen to DOUBLE his insurance coverage 9 days before the 9/11 “attacks”? its a cabal……

    less we forget we went into Iraq after WMD’s which were never found DURING THE OCCUPATION. however we now know there were WMD’s in Iraq – canisters of cyanide gas – that were used on the Iraqi people & how do we know? because they are marked and when found can & have been traced to US & allied nations. they were sold to Saddam Hussain for use on his people thus justifying a petro-war and occupation. you don’t hear anyone bitching about C-130’s filled with American cash that was distributed there, & I do not mean 1 or 2 but trillions of tax payer dollars…….

    How many UN resolutions did Saddam flat out violate after Desert Storm ended? Never mind the WMDs. Saddam surrendered after Desert Storm ended and agreed to abide by numerous UN resolutions which he disregarded in the years that followed. That in itself was numerous and clear violations that justified going back to war in Iraq. Saddam violated the conditions set forth by the UN which were part of his conditional surrender. Those violations were justification for returning to war.

      Can you in your heart believe that what has happened in the middle east , the slaughter of women and children does not touch you , That BLAIR and BUSH didn’t care about the people , it was all about the oil. ask yourself why they do not go into Africa. When heads of states put money before people as they do. how do we bring our young up?

      Maggie Amor We bring our young up with the understanding that we are all Gods’ children. All of us. We bring our children up knowing that they have free will. Free will to either obey God or not obey God. We bring our children up to know that no matter what decisions they make, there will be consequences good or bad. We bring our children up to understand that this free will exists between us and God and among Gods’ children (you and I). I believe you are intelligent enough to see where I am going with this so instead of me continuing to type out a novel, I’ll leave it there. Just one additional thing I’ll add… none of Gods’ children get to truly judge another one of Gods’ children. That isn’t our job. We will be judged though but it won’t be done by a peer.

  31. This is not new, news

    The whole Iraq war is one big charade, starting from 9/11.
    Time to deal with the ‘ mass cognitive dissonance ‘ that impedes people’s thinking.
    If it looks like a turd, smells like a turd, & tastes like a turd,………in spite of what the mainstream media tells us,……it’s not a lollipop, it’s a turd!!!

  33. WE ALL KNEW THAT AT THE TIME! But it has taken 13 years, and 2.5m words to prove what we already knew.
    There we go. Two former leaders who should – right now – be in the Hague, facing charges in the International Court. (Just like they did to Karadic. In international law, no different).

    If you kill one person it is Murder.
    If you kill a few hundred it is Terrorism.
    If you kill a few million it is War.
    If you kill the entire planet it is Progress, Growth, Development.

    Military Industrial Complex = War and Terrorism.
    War = Terrorism.
    War is the biggest act of Terrorism.

    Weapon industry came with industrialization…….War industry came with industrialization………Global wars came with industrialization……..Global terrorism came with industrialization……..Global wars and terrorism were not possible in pre-industrial society in the absence of weapon industry, transportation industry and communication industry.

    Global wars and terrorism cannot be stopped without eradicating industrial society.

    Lockheed Martin…….Boeing………Raytheon……….Northrop Grumman……….General Dynamics……..And hundreds of other weapon manufacturers all over the world………These are the real terrorists whose weapons have fuelled war and terrorism everywhere in this world……….Weapons produced by these corporations have killed millions of people.

    In a non-industrial world NATO couldn’t have meddled in the Middle East or Afghanistan………ISIS, Taliban or AlQaida couldn’t have attacked the west because guns and explosives did not exist before industrialization……..The one and only cause of all problems is industrialization.

    The nonsense of Cold Wars and Hot Wars came with industrialization……..NATO created Taliban to fight Russian forces in Afghanistan………NATO is responsible for the emergence of ISIS………NATO attacked and flattened Iraq……..NATO toppled Saddam Hussain who was holding the country together……..The chaos and violence that resulted from American invasion of Iraq led to the emergence of ISIS.

    What is being used for war and terrorism???……….Are flowers being used for war and terrorism???

    The more weapons you produce the more war and terrorism you will have.

    Do you see war and terrorism in millions of other species???
    Millions of other species never produced weapons.

    All the war, violence and terrorism in this world has been fuelled by millions of tonnes of weapons produced and sold by the weapon industry.

    Countries that have produced and sold weapons are the biggest terrorists.

    Corporations that have produced and sold weapons are the biggest terrorists.

    All problems have been worsened by industrialization……..In pre-industrial society more than 99% of population was producing food……..The armies of kings consisted of just a few hundred soldiers……..How much war and violence would you expect in such a society???

    In industrial society 50% of population is not producing food………It is doing destructive work………Millions of people are working for the Weapon Industry……..Millions of people are employed in the Army, Air Force and Navy……..Millions of people are working for the Intelligence Agencies.

    Largescale war, violence and terrorism is a natural outcome of this.

    Technology is the biggest terrorist………All the guns, weapons and explosives came with science and technology.

    Pre-industrial wars were fought face-to-face, on foot or horse-back, with swords and spears………Industrial weapons can kill from thousands of kilometers away……. Bombs and missiles can decimate people from a distance.

    Wars have happened on earth for thousands of years………But there is a world of difference between pre-industrial wars and industrial wars.

    Comparing pre-industrial wars with industrial wars is like comparing the Lamp with the Sun.

    More people have died in hundred years of wars after industrialization (20th century) than in thousands of years of wars before industrialization.

    World wars happened only after industrialization………World wars were not possible in pre-industrial society.

    In pre-industrial society war and violence was mostly localized…….In pre-industrial society countries in one continent could not have caused war and violence in countries of another continent.

    Even religious conflicts have been aggravated by industrialization and urbanization………..In pre-industrial society people of one race and religion mostly stayed in one region because of the absence of industrial transportation……..This minimized religious conflicts.

    America is the biggest manufacturer and supplier of weapons in the world which have fuelled war, violence and terrorism everywhere that has killed millions of people.

    800 Military Bases all over the world.

    America has bombed every continent in the world…..Killed millions of people with smart bombs, depleted uranium bombs, carpet bombing, drone attacks, economic sanctions and embargoes..

    America has toppled governments…..Installed puppet regimes…..Destabilized the entire world.

    3000 people died in the World Trade Tower collapse……..America created a big ruckus…….It attacked and flattened Afghanistan and killed hundreds of thousands of people directly or indirectly.

    More than 10,000 people died in Bhopal Gas Tragedy in India in 1984…….Half a million people were maimed for life……..Genetic disorders will continue for generations………The worst industrial accident in the world caused by American company Union Carbide………America resisted the extradition of Warren Anderson , chairman of Union Carbide for 30 years…….He died last year…….No american got punished for the biggest industrial crime in the world.

    The entire industrial society is a terrorist……..Industrial society has destroyed forests, rivers, oceans and atmosphere…….Industrial society has tortured, slaughtered and decimated millions of species.

    Industrialization was the biggest act of terrorism in this world.

    Hundred years of industrial activity has destroyed what was created by nature in millions of years.

    Industrial society has destroyed the planet with Mining Industry, Logging Industry, Manufacturing Industry, Construction Industry, Electricity Industry, Oil Industry, Automobile and Rail Industry, Airline and Shipping Industry, Meat and Fishing Industry.

    All problems of industrial society have either been created by industrialization or worsened by industrialization………All problems of industrial society are unsolvable because industrialization itself is the cause of problems………Problems of industrial society can go away only when industrial society goes away.

    Man has spent more than 99.9% of his time on earth in non-industrial societies.

    Man lived in hunter_gatherer society for one million years……..Man lived in agrarian society for 10,000 years……..Man has lived in industrial society for just about 100 years during which he has destroyed the entire planet.

    If Urban Society stops its supplies to Rural Society it will live forever.
    If Rural Society stops its supplies to Urban Society it will die within a month.
    That is the worth of Urban Jobs, Consumer Goods, Growth Rate, Economy Rate and GDP.
    Industrialization was the biggest crime on earth.
    Agrarian society was the limit for man on earth.

USA’s useless wars since then have caused many problems than before. Nowadays the world is insecure than any time in history because of the stupidity of USA, NATO, &Their Allies whose motive are selfish and irrational.

  56. No the world leaders knew it was going to happen if they get in trouble every leader of that time should get in trouble

  57. Where we come from, where we are going, why we are here, the truth about Life and death on earth has been revealed, the most clear, complete, and accurate explanation of the truth of life on earth. The universe as it relates to conscious life can be understood now. Learning the ultimate truth is the next step in our evolution. Nothing else matters. The world is being destroyed as a result of people not knowing the truth.

    Without the truth, there can be no real morality, justice, equality, unity, success, freedom, love, security, peace, spirituality or even survival. Only the truth can stop the wars and make the world the paradise it can be. Knowing the ultimate truth makes it possible for people to see life clearly and to be filled by it.

  79. We have no reason to invade anybody. Our minds and mouths can do far more than our bodies in terms of progress.

    War is a serious joke. Always has been. Not talking about current times or anything going on now.. Talking about the bigger picture; war is not progress.

  80. Afghanistan’s invasion can be justified as the then taliban regime had given refuge to osama and other al qaida leaders although osama bin laden later sneaked in to pakistan with the help of pakistani army, but iraq’s invasion was driven by George w. Bush’s personal agenda as senior bush had failed in toppling saddam hussain. For that the fictitious weapons of mass destruction theory was invented by jr. Bush , the result is current mess in middle East and its ramifications in the whole world.

      You are spot on – the point of the report is to give the public the impression that these people actually care and to give the public the impression that it’s all been taken care of (although there will, of course, be no consequences for anyone in the “club”). These analyses are pointless unless they drive changes that prevent the possibility of anything similar happening ever again.
