Is it worth responding to the shit eating grin of Britain’s premier war criminal? What he has said here is what all of us who were against the war and who knew the rationales were bullshit (please, anyone who say how could we have known either cannot read or are clinically dumb as a spoon, the info was there at the time) yet he says it in such a way as if he were stating- Look I was right all along! In other words he is a motherfucker, he will do anything, ANYTHING, and spout specious shit about it afterwards and not care that he subsequently contradicts himself or proves himself a liar, after all in his position he is pretty well much assured there will be no consequences for his actions absent a concerted plot by capable snipers. So he is scum, sociopathic bulging eyed messianic scum. The real problem is media who continue to give him a platform and here we see hard news internationally respected independent investigative journalist John Pilger Fern Britton…um what? It can only be a matter of time before he appears In The Night Garden to defend his record BUT he need not run from the supposed real journalists at the BBC, on Start The Week Andrew Marr while talking with Tariq Ali did this-
I have puzzled quite a while in between sweary rants about what exactly this was, he was correcting Ali’s widely acknowledged figure for the casualties of the Iraq war with a lower figure which came from…well he said UN but I think he means the Lancet study figure that is now 3 years out of date (plus he lowballs it to exclude those dead from degraded health and sanitary conditions which the war created), because there is no UN total figure. But really what it put me in mind of more than anything else was a teacher’s pet or class prefect repudiating a fellow pupil who said something he knew his master would not like to hear. He then pushes the conversation onwards so there is no argument over his moronic interjection, because y’know 600,000 is like fine and ok and only loonies think it was a million or more and therefore it was a bad thing. Why fucking say it unless he has deeply internalised lower figures, why do that unless you fundamentally side with the establishment, I cannot say it made me glad I had not wasted time on his history vanity project because there was zero prospect of me bothering to watch it anyway. I presume he records the numbers killed by the Nazis as roughly half of what respected and sourced studies say and await the righteous fury for his Holocaust denial as he is fired from the BBC…oh look that hasn’t happened, I guess we’ll have to wait for a Nazi to present a show where they can interject into the conversation with a guest saying “6 million Jews and another 6 million victimised minority groups were killed”.
“Actually” Oberleutnant Marr will correct his guest, knowing his superiors are listening and his access to them for career enhancing interviews will dry up if he sides with this deranged lefty trouble maker, “it was only 3 million of each. But let’s leave that there, what about this new show my other guest has out, lets promote that, and later why big ears and looking like a deformed Gelfling formed through the unholy union between Gollum and Prince Charles is sexy.”
No wonder Anthony is so assured in his smug superiority to those who object to war crimes. And you know what, when he dies, it’ll be like when Reagan kicked it, he’ll be fucking canonised, if not by these actual hacks than by their following generation of arse lickers. And when some terrible act of violence rooted in what we did in Iraq occurs here, they absolutely will publish articles asking Why Do They Hate Us?
How could they not?
