About the non-existent reasons for going to war, nothing.
About the plagiarised dossier, nothing.
About the failure to properly protect the troops, nothing.
About the use of cluster bombs, nothing.
About the failure to follow the Geneva Conventions, nothing.
About the blatant sell-off of Iraqi assets to US companies, nothing.
