Bush Lied, Humans Died

Immediately, I thought that this was Bush's Gulf of Tonkin Moment: More proof that Bush lied us into this useless war, with Tony Blair as his puppet.

According to the BBC, Bush and Blair Discussed Using An American Spyplane tIn UN Colors to Lure Saddam Into War.

Channel 4 News tonight reveals extraordinary details of George Bush and Tony Blair's pre-war meeting in January 2003 at which they discussed plans to
begin military action on March 10th 2003, irrespective of whether the United
Nations had passed a new resolution authorising the use of force. Channel 4 News
has seen minutes from that meeting, which took place in the White House on 31
January 2003. The two leaders discussed the possibility of securing further UN
support, but President Bush made it clear that he had already decided to go to
war. The details are contained in a new version of the book 'Lawless World'
written by a leading British human rights lawyer, Philippe Sands QC.

President Bush said that:"The US would put its full weight behind efforts
to get another resolution and would 'twist arms' and 'even threaten'. But he had
to say that if ultimately we failed, military action would follow anyway.''Prime
Minister Blair responded that he was: "solidly with the President and ready to
do whatever it took to disarm Saddam."

President Bush said: "The US was thinking of flying U2 reconnaissance
aircraft with fighter cover over Iraq, painted in UN colours. If Saddam fired on
them, he would be in breach."He went on: "It was also possible that a defector
could be brought out who would give a public presentation about Saddam's WMD,
and there was also a small possibility that Saddam would be assassinated."
