What will it take for Bush and Blair to admit the disaster of their Foreign Policy?

London, UK, September 27 – Yesterday, in his farewell address to the Labour Party conference, Tony Blair repeated the same false rhetoric that he has issued repeatedly over the past few years. In denying the role of western foreign policy - in particular the Iraq war - in causing and fuelling violence, Blair has firmly placed the blame on what he calls an 'extremist ideology' operating devoid of political concerns. Wallowing in denial, Blair said, "This terrorism isn't our fault. We didn't cause it. It's not the consequence of foreign policy."

Yet on the same day Blair made this speech, US President Bush was desperately trying to defend himself against similar arguments from a US Intelligence committee report. The National Intelligence Estimate leaked earlier this week decisively claimed that the Iraq war had created a greater threat of violence.

This has been followed today by a report from the UK Ministry of Defence, leaked to BBC's Newsnight, claiming that, "The war in Iraq...has acted as a recruiting sergeant for extremists across the Muslim world…Iraq has served to radicalise an already disillusioned youth."

Imran Waheed, a media representative of Hizb ut-Tahrir Britain, said, "The world wonders what it will take for Bush and Blair to admit the disaster of their foreign policy. These two reports both confirm that any 'radicalisation' towards violence in recent years has been generated by Bush and Blair's war in Iraq. This was predicted before the Iraq war. This follows a pattern of how aggressive and oppressive policies of Western governments in the Muslim world - including the support for Israel's oppressive occupation, the Gulf War of 1991 followed by a murderous sanctions regime and support for tyrants and dictators - has created instability and danger in the world."

"The disastrous policies of Bush and Blair are the obstacle to stability in the Muslim world which for too long has been ravaged by their brand of militant colonialism. Their continued denial of the role of their policies in causing violence, turmoil and instability is a recipe for further insecurity."
