George Galloway: Morally justified for a suicide bomber to kill Tony Blair
The Respect MP George Galloway has said it would be morally justified for a suicide bomber to murder Tony Blair.
In an interview with GQ magazine, the reporter asked him: "Would the assassination of, say, Tony Blair by a suicide bomber - if there were no other casualties - be justified as revenge for the war on Iraq?"
Mr Galloway replied: "Yes, it would be morally justified. I am not calling for it - but if it happened it would be of a wholly different moral order to the events of 7/7. It would be entirely logical and explicable. And morally equivalent to ordering the deaths of thousands of innocent people in Iraq - as Blair did."
Somehow I think that if someone said that here about George Bush (which, for all you idiots at the NSA who are listening in, I'm not) they would find themselves locked up at Guantanamo faster than they could say "Jack Robinson."
