In this video Craig Murray, a former British Diplomat said, I worked in the British Foreign office. I became the British Ambassador. I was a British diplomat for 20 years. I was alway patriotic to be British. I was very very proud, I remember when I first became a British Ambassador and I first went out on my own flag car with the Union Jack flying on the front as the Ambassador.
I had a lump on my throat, it’s a proud moment for me. It was only 6 months and I discovered that in a country where I was Ambassador, we and Americans were shipping people in order for them to be tortured and some of them were tortured to death. Now as you may imagine, my world view changed.
It was at the same time about a month later we invaded Iraq against the will of the Security Council. Not just without the will of the security council. But in the full knowledge that if we had gone to the security council, we would be voted down. I as a British diplomat, I saw all the internal memos that went through all that decision. I know for a certain.
“ Anybody who is voting ‘no’ is voting to support a psychologically flawed, pathologica state, which is a danger to the world. A rogue state. A state prepared to go to war to make a few people wealthy.”
I used to be head of FCO unit that monitored Iraqi weapons of mass destruction. I know for certain I can tell you they knew there weren’t any. It wasn’t a mistake, it was a lied. I think it is impossible to be proud of the United Kingdom. I think when we invaded Iraq, we did to the United Nations what Hitler and Mussolini did to the League of Nations. And I think what we’ve done since where the truth is often much hidden in the bombing.
If we look at Libya, disaster now. We bombed it. We killed fifteen thousand people (15000) when NATO bombed it. Something they never told you on the BBC. Did we make it better? No. I saw in Uzbekistan. I saw the gas contracts signed by Imron. A company called Unical, which George Bush Snr was on board.
It’s a big gas pipeline from Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan over Afghanistan down to the indian ocean. That was actually what the Afghan war was about. They had actually had talks with the Taliban and Unical to see if the Taliban would provide pipeline security.
The person who held those talks, the consultant of Unical was a certain Mr Kassi. Who after being employed by George Bush Snr as consultant went on to become president of Afghanistan. That was their plan B. The Taliban wouldn’t do it so they invaded. I’ve seen it on the inside. It’s almost always about control of resources. It is every bit as corrupt. I can tell you it is not an academic construct.
The system stinks, Westminster stinks. The British Government is deeply deeply immoral. They don’t care how many people they kill abroad if advances them and anybody who is voting ‘no’ is voting to support a psychologically flawed, pathologica state, which is a danger to the world. A rogue state. A state prepared to go to war to make a few people wealthy. That’s why I say it’s not possible to be a decent person and vote ‘no’ and we shouldn’t be ashamed to say that.
