Changing that which needs to be changed -- Cameron for Blair, Kim Jong Un for Saddam Hussein -- the scenario is the same: shameless and brazen falsifications to sanction imperialist aggression.

As Major General Michael Laurie, who sat on the Joint Intelligence Committee responsible for producing the dossier later admitted, its purpose "was precisely to make a case for war, rather than setting out the available intelligence."

The lies of that time laid the ground for the war that began six months later, on March 20, 2003, the destruction of Iraq and the hundreds of thousands of casualties that followed both during the war and in the ensuing and continuing sectarian conflicts.

The major difference between then and now is that the crime being planned by Washington and London is greater in scale and potential impact than even the war of aggression waged against Iraq.

The US is indicating its preparedness to deploy nuclear weapons against Pyongyang, flying nuclear-capable bombers over the Korean Peninsula. This was done despite US intelligence assessments that "there was a low probability of a North Korean military response." A US nuclear attack by the United States would kill millions in Korea and potentially spark a nuclear conflict with China.

Cameron's filthy rhetoric should be treated with the contempt it deserves. Above all, it must be the occasion for workers and youth in Britain to take a political stand in opposition to the imperialist war drive in Asia.
