Still Waters Posted March 18 #1 Share Posted March 18 (IP: Staff) · The Iraq war remains the UK’s most investigated foreign policy decision of the past 50 years. As the world marks 20 years since the invasion that killed hundreds of thousands of Iraqis, we have to ask, has the UK learned any lessons from what happened in 2003? The US and UK invaded Iraq in 2003 with the declared intention of removing weapons of mass destruction (WMD) and liberating the Iraqi people from the dictatorship of Saddam Hussein. This followed a months-long process of diplomacy and UN weapons inspections, during which time the US and UK built their case for invasion. As a result of all the investigations into the Iraq war, we have a good understanding of what flaws affected this process, particularly in terms of how prime minister Tony Blair made the decisions he did. https://theconversation.com/iraq-war-20-years-on-the-british-government-has-never-fully-learned-from-tony-blairs-mistakes-201592 More here: 2 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
