The Chilcot Inquiry into former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair's invasion of Iraq argues the invasion was unnecessary and against the UN's recommendations. Many argue this disregard for international law makes Tony Blair a war criminal, and he should be tried in an international court for war crimes.
No, Tony Blair is not a war criminal
Tony Blair was acting on intelligence that justified his crimes at the time. This shows that Tony Blair is not a war criminal.
Tony Blair's leadership was not defined by the Iraq War
Blair led a government that successfully reduced UK poverty and increased wages. These outweigh his mistakes in Iraq.
