FLASHBACK: Galloway goes to Washington
A potent reminder that if we had true leaders in Congress, instead of sychophants, we would NEVER have found ourselves in the position we are in today.
I gave my heart and soul to stop you [from] committing the disaster that you did commit in invading Iraq. And I told the world that your case for the war was a pack of LIES.One year later, the numbers have almost doubled.
I told the world that Iraq - contrary to your claims - did NOT have weapons of mass destruction.
I told the world - contrary to your claims - that Iraq had no connection to Al Qaeda.
I told the world - contrary to your claims - that Iraq had no connection to the atrocity on 9/11, 2001.
I told the world - contrary to your claims - that the Iraqi people would resist a British and American invasion of their country
And that the fall of Baghdad would not be the beginning of the end but merely the end of the beginning.
Senator, in everything I said about Iraq, I turned out to be right and you turned out to be wrong
And a hundred thousand people have paid with their lives – 1600 of them, American soldiers sent to their deaths on a pack of LIES.
15,000 of them wounded - many of them disabled forever - on a pack of LIES.
If the world had listened to Kofi Anon, whose dismissal you demanded . . .Read it and weep, America.
If the world had listened to President Chirac, who you want to paint as some kind of corrupt traitor . . .
If the world had listened to me and the anti-war movement in Britain, we would not be in the disaster that we are in today.
If George Dubya, or any one of those bootlickers in Congress, had one iota of George Galloway's courage and integrity, America would be a beacon of freedom and dignity, instead of an empire of greed and ignominy.
