It’s time we recognised the Blair government’s criminality

John Pilger writes, “It’s time we recognised the Blair government’s criminality.”

In an article published on his blog, John Pilger, points on state crimes committed against other nations under Blair government and how they were handled to fall under impunity.

He highlights, among other things, Blair’s links to the Rwandan government.

Deploying sinecures of “peace-making” and “development” that allow him to replenish the fortune accumulated since leaving Downing Street, Blair’s jackdaw travels are concentrated on the Gulf sheikhdoms, the US, Israel and safe havens like the small African nation of Rwanda.  Since 2007, Blair has made seven visits to Rwanda, where he has access to a private jet supplied by President Paul Kagame. Kagame’s regime, whose opponents have been silenced brutally on trumped-up charges, is “innovative” and a “leader” in Africa, says Blair.
