Discussing the Chilcot Report

The publication of the Chilcot Report, will undoubtedly raise many unresolved issues surrounding Britain’s decision to launch the 2003 invasion of Iraq. 

Over a decade later, the Iraq war is still the most controversial and politically sensitive issue haunting both Britain and British foreign policy. 

While many question the legitimacy surrounding the invasion, the main point of the Iraq Inquiry is if Saddam Hussain had Weapons of Mass Destruction, which could be dispatched in 45 minutes, as was claimed. 

The report is not about Saddam’s human rights record, or even about initial claims that Saddam was involved with the 9/11 attacks on America’s Twin Towers. 

As part of the discussion, over on https://twitter.com/IraqSolidarity, the Manchester based Iraq Solidarity News (Al-Thawra) is providing both news and information, which will undoubtedly contribute massively to the many debates that are going to be had over the Iraq War.

The conversation at @IraqSolidarity on Twitter, also doesn’t just stop with the 2003 invasion and subsequent occupation by both Britain and America but also helps to fill in the blank spaces left absent from the media. 

As a news provider, Iraq Solidarity tells the historic and contemporary story of what the Iraqi people are going through, while providing the reader with unique insights from a variety of fascinating perspectives.
