These "confessions" are not for us

Tony Blair has said:

“I really don’t know why the Iranian regime keep doing this. All it does is enhance people’s sense of disgust at captured personnel being paraded and manipulated in this way.

“It doesn’t fool anyone. And what the Iranians have to realise is if they continue in this way they will face increasing isolation.”

He added that it was “perfectly obvious these people were in Iraqi waters under a United Nations mandate”.

In the west the statement above is perfectly true, but the video isn’t meant for us. It is designed to influence the people of Iran, Iraq, Jordan etc. who may need to be convinced of the case for an escalation of hostilities.

It won’t convince us that we are the aggressors and we probably won’t convince the Iranian people that it is their government who are.

  1.
