Significantly, one of the last things that Tony Blair does before finally quitting (don't believe it until it happens) is to go off to greet the British military occupation on a rah-rah tour in Iraq. A mortar attack was made on the British Embassy but unfortunately missed hitting Blair who went on to give a heart-rending speech on what a great job 'Our Boys' were doing defending good ol' Freedom 'n' Democracy and making the Matrix World a safer place to live, blah, blah, blah.
Meantime, ex-Prez Jimmy Carter is reported by the BBC to opine on Blair in tones which if not quite Red Pill are still an embarrassing pink.
Criticising Blair for his "blind" support of the war in Iraq Carter said the UK's "almost undeviating" support for "the ill-advised policies of President Bush in Iraq had been a major tragedy for the world."
"... I think the combination of Bush and Blair giving their support to this tragedy in Iraq has strengthened the effort and has made the opposition less effective and prolonged the war and increased the tragedy that has resulted."
The Iraq invasion had "caused deep schisms on a global basis", said Carter, and he hoped Mr Blair's successor, Gordon Brown, would be less enthusiastic in his support for it.
Jimmy Carter's outspoken condemnation of Blair followed a similar interview he gave to BBC Newsnight last year when he expressed his disappointment at the "apparently" subservient attitude of the British government towards the White House. Carter went on to observe how enthusiastically Blair had helped to influence Bush's war-mongering by adding "a very strong voice from London in the shaping of a common policy." "I have been really disappointed in the apparent subservience of the British government's policies related to many of the serious mistakes that have been originated in Washington," he added.
"No matter what kind of radical or ill-advised policy was proposed from the White House, it seems to me that almost automatically the government of Great Britain would adopt the same policy without exerting its influence."
Well, this is about as candid as any establishment political figure is going to get. Apart, that is, from the priceless comment by Sir Rodric Braithwaite (UK ambassador to Moscow 1988-92, then foreign policy adviser to John Major and chairman of the Joint Intelligence Committee) who described the miserable Blair as "a frayed and waxy zombie straight from Madame Tussaud’s."
"This one," Sir Rodric continued, "seems to live and breathe. Perhaps it comes from the Central Intelligence Agency’s box of technical tricks, programmed to spout the language of the White House in an artificial English accent."
"Perhaps," of course, is a deliberate understatement by an ex-intelligence boss who knows full well Blair's long history as an informant and quisling whose CIA-directed mission was to finally destroy the reformist tendencies of the British Labour Party as well as his country's freedoms.
When the establishment begins to talk in those terms you can be sure that political affairs have not just deteriorated, they have taken on the proportions of a Titanic listing badly before being sucked down into an unforgiving abyss.

The list of Blair's crimes are endless: in his youth an MI5 informant, a war criminal who not only lied to his parliament and people about non-existent WMD's but who actively used his intelligence services to fabricate lies in order to feed them to their CIA counterparts and a compliant media. Leo Strauss, the architect of the 'noble lie', kiss-my-ass philosophy of the neocons would have been delighted in how deftly his acolyte, the Bliar, was able to put the science of spin, distortion and invention into service. So would Goebbels, he of the Big Lie.
Not only was the Iraq invasion justified by a stream of well-orchestrated lies where Bush and Blair were fed just the kind of 'intelligence' they instructed their spooks to feed them it was, by an incredible sleight-of-hand, made to seem like a necessary act in an equally fake 'war on terror' where Saddam Hussein and the nebulous Al-Qaeda were held responsible for 911.
Though taken in by the Al-CIA-duh link to 911 story few in Europe bought the contorted logic linking both to Saddam Hussein. But it didn't matter a damn because the target audience to persuade was not in Europe but with the folks down home in Amerikkay. And they bought it hook, line and sinker, thanks to the force-feeding techniques used by the Bushblair duo and their media sycophants on both sides of the Atlantic.
Just hours after 911, Noam Chomsky, in an interview on a then relatively free BBC World Service, warned the world that the real impact of 911 would follow in a world of rapidly-deteriorating civil liberties. He was exactly right and an inexorable onslaught on civil liberties followed where the diabolic duo used their fabricated 'war on terror' and the excuse of 'security' to overturn the basic tenets, such as Magna Carta and Habeas Corpus, upon which Anglo-Saxon law was founded eight hundred years ago.
The havoc wreaked upon our freedoms by these satanic minions is much greater than anything their erstwhile counterpart, Adolf Hitler, was able to bring about in a war-torn world. And yet it follows on nicely in a descending curve of civilised values which Hitler and Mussolini would have been delighted to see their political descendants bring about in a world betrayed by smooth-talking gangsters.
The 'war on terror' was never what it was purported to be. More correctly it was a war of terror in which the ultimate goal is to dismantle the old, so-called 'politics of consensus' of the post WWII period, where social spending was considered an important aspect of developing capitalism, and to replace it with something far more brutal disguised by the economic description of 'liberalization' and 'globalization.'
A fake 911, the 'war on terror', homeland security, the invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan, the neocon Blueprint for a New American Century, a racist scapegoating and terrorizing of Muslim communities, all these are but the various building-blocks by which a New World Order is being created. The same new world order that Blair predicted would follow in a speech given not long after 911 in which he claimed that "the Kaleidoscope" had been shaken and when the pieces fell back into place the fractal reality of a new world order would have come about.
How many professional 'commentators' would have rashly said what they knew to be the truth: that 911 was a carefully-orchestrated event deliberately brought about to give the likes of Bush and Blair a Pearl Harbour event to justify their war-mongering in the name of Big Oil and the betrayal of their people's freedoms? How many editors would have dared to risk their careers by publishing anything but the official spin on 911 or the warnings of Chomsky that 911 would presage a new dark age of totalitarianism?
It was left to the politically marginalised sectors of a prison planet to get the truth out by any means they could find, predominantly the internet. For nearly six years now, this writer has played his part in that small band. And we shall continue until such time as the likes of Bush and Blair are successful in finally being able to control the internet and turn us into 'non-persons', beings who simply do not exist in the fractal-reality of the dystopia they intended when they shook the kaleidoscope so violently on 11 September 2001.
