Reviews - What do customers think about Lies, Damned Lies and Iraq: An Indepth Analysis Into the Case for War and How It Was Misrepresented?

Useful account of the lies that led us into war  Jul 3, 2008
In this absorbing book, Peter Kilfoyle MP details Blair and Straw's endless systematic lies about Iraq to Parliament and people. These included lies about the war's legality, about Iraq's supposed `imminent threat', its mythical links with Al Qaeda and its equally mythical WMDs.

As Glen Rangwala wrote in September 2002, "There is no case for a war in Iraq. It has not threatened to attack the United States or Europe. It is not connected to Al Qaeda. There is no evidence that it has new WMD, or that it possesses the means of delivering them."

Kilfoyle notes that although the US state signed the Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention (1972) banning the sale of toxins, the 1994 Riegle Report to the US Senate found, "from at least 1985 through 1989, the period for which records were available, the United States government approved for sale to Iraq quantities of potentially lethal biological agents." They were all used in the US-approved attack on Iran or destroyed by 1991.

In 2003/3 Labour talked peace then voted for war. Kilfoyle seems to think that this was an unusual betrayal of Labour values. But Labour did the same in 1914. And the Attlee government talked decolonisation then waged a colonial war against Malaya; it talked peace then joined in the USA's most genocidal war, the 1950 attack on Korea.

Kilfoyle writes that it was `astonishing', `truly amazing' and `a mystery' that MPs bought the lies and voted for an illegal war of aggression. No, it was inevitable, given that the ruling class wanted the war. It would only be `truly amazing' if Parliament voted against what the ruling class wants.

This book, like so many others on the Iraq war, exposes the lies - but so what? Exposing the lies makes no difference, the state carries on regardless.

As long as we let this class rule in capital's interests, it will overrule democracy, do whatever the US state wants and lie us into war after war, whipping up hate of those who rule target countries - one week Burma, the next Sudan, then China, today Zimbabwe, tomorrow Iran.
