The ‘Blood Price’ That Could Hang Tony Blair: Is Tony Blair being blackmailed?

With Bush seeking
to obscure the collapse of the American financial system with a war plan
that plays well with voters ahead of elections in November, Tony Blair’s
sacrificial willingness to “pay the blood price” is so essential
to the survival of the Bush regime that it may have been obtained in a
way that makes of Tony Blair a man whose allegiance is not to the British
Crown or even the British people, but to a powerful supranational Anglo-American
elite that answers to no one but itself.

2002.09.06

On Tuesday Tony Blair declared war on British public
opinion. Yesterday he affirmed that Britain must “pay the blood price”
for its special relationship with the United States.

On Saturday he will
met with President Bush to determine the course of an illegal and universally
condemned war that started covertly as long ago as March and which entered
its preliminary “hot phase” yesterday with 100 airborne sorties
over the southernmost tip of Baghdad.

Tony Blair is already a murderer many thousands of times
over.

He is sought for war crimes in the former Yugoslav Republic where,
in common with their Iraqi counterparts, countless numbers of children
suffer cancers and deformities caused by uranium-depleted bombs and Tomahawk
missiles dispatched by the Royal Air Force.

He also faces prosecution by
human rights groups for his executive role in the carefully coordinated
slaughter of over 400 prisoners of war at Nazar-i-Sharif in Afghanistan.
Estimates vary, but some figures suggest that between 40 and 60 prisoners
were tortured before being shot in the back of the head by SAS and CIA
operatives.

Such has been Mr Blair’s blood lust in recent weeks,
notwithstanding threats of resignation form his cabinet and stark warnings
issued by his own advisors that his support for an unhinged American President
is damaging the Labour Party and diminishing his prospects of re-election,
that one is tempted to ask the question:

Is he being blackmailed?

Does
America’s National Security Agency have something on file that would, if
made public, fatally damage Tony Blair and his ruling Labour Party?

Even
if we regard with skepticism the assertion made by author Robin Ramsey
that the blueprint for New Labour was drafted by the CIA in the twilight
years of the Thatcher regime, we can safely assume that Labour’s new-fangled
Moral Imperialism (Cooper et al) is not at variance with the sort of thinking
that informs the Pentagon’s war-planners and shapes the intellectual uplands
of the Washington establishment.

The extent to which allied support is badly needed by
an American administration under fire for policies that are marking it
out as a dangerously arrogant clique shoring up a discombobulated rogue
state is evident in a recent poll that shows that only one third of American
citizens would support a unilateral invasion of Iraq.

With Bush seeking
to obscure the collapse of the American financial system with a war plan
that plays well with voters ahead of elections in November, Tony Blair’s
sacrificial willingness to “pay the blood price” is so essential
to the survival of the Bush regime that it may have been obtained in a
way that makes of Tony Blair a man whose allegiance is not to the British
Crown or even the British people, but to a powerful supranational Anglo-American
elite that answers to no one but itself.

The message put out by this elite is unmistakable:

public
opinion no longer counts and the electorate has no choice in determining
important world-changing events because political oppositions (US Democrats
and British Tories) play the game according to the same pre-rigged rules.

The “blood price” has a fixed value, is non-negotiable, and,
at an esoteric level, represents ongoing reparations inherent in the post
1917 relationship between the American Republic and the British Crown.

You may call it the ‘special relationship’. I call it treason.

And the penalty for treason in the United Kingdom is
death by hanging.
