We’re NOT Safer Than We Were Three Years Ago

Blix says Iraq war stim­u­lat­ed terrorism

STOCKHOLM (Reuters) — For­mer chief U.N. weapons inspec­tor Hans Blix says the U.S.-led inva­sion of Iraq had failed trag­i­cal­ly in its aim of mak­ing the world a safer place and suc­ceed­ed only in stim­u­lat­ing terrorism.

Blix, in implic­it crit­i­cism of the main pro­tag­o­nists U.S. Pres­i­dent George W. Bush and Prime Min­is­ter Tony Blair, said on Wednes­day the action had also failed to deter any ambi­tions on the part of Iran or North Korea to devel­op nuclear weapons.

“The acknowl­edged gain of the war was that a treach­er­ous and mur­der­ous dic­ta­tor (Sad­dam Hus­sein) was removed, but the rest has been tragedy and fail­ure,” he told Reuters in an interview.

“It has stim­u­lat­ed terrorism.”
