American-Muslim Criticisms of Blair

October 31, 2006 § 4 Comments

We are looking at strange times for Britain compared to the days when She dominated the waterways with a monstrous Navy led by its overbearing yet brilliant Minister of Admiralty, Sir Winston. This was a time when the country was united and unyielding in killing Germans, dethroning a Turkish Sultan and shuffling Arab lands like playing cards. A time when Henry Asquith was at the helm as Prime Minister of Britain. This was a time when men were men and Prime Ministering was at its height, a time when civil wars were home grown (Irish Home Rule Act) instead of foreign affairs from Allied meddling.

However, since Blair is no Asquith he must face the music and be subject to the world’s disappointment as suggested in this BBC article,

“It is just possible that, more than three years after the Iraq invasion, Tony Blair will be defeated in the House of Commons over the war.” (N. Assinder, BBC)

Ironically, there is the possibility that Asquith’s Parliament Act of 1911, which suppressed the House of Lords and gave supremacy to the House of Commons, opened the doors for Blair’s foolhardy partnership with the Bush Administration. My assumption is that had the Parliament Act of 1911 not existed there would have been resistance to Blair’s plans to invade Iraq which may have resulted in better planning instead of a harum scarum offensive.

    Salaam Alaikum,

    Great Britain is no longer the great nation it once was. And this is how it is for all nations – they rise and fall.

    But it is amazing to see how leaders in a span of a few years can take an entire country down by incompetent actions. Bush and Blair are both Incompetents who have hurt their countries more than we can imagine. The best they can do now is to step down.

    wa ‘alaikum as-salaam,

    “Great Britain is no longer the great nation it once was.”

    “Great”? Britain’s fusty and feeble hands tremble; bronzed and bloodstained. Its antiquated ideologies have caused “Great” destruction on the Earth, second only to the Great Flood and rivaled only by Americans and other Europeans trying to compete. I am certainly no friend of Britain until she is a friend of mankind.
