George Galloway justifies a hypothetical murder of Tony Blair

As if Ghoulish George couldn’t possibly be any more sick, now comes this:

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.”

Would someone please explain to me again why anyone in Britain would elect this serial idiot to represent them in the first place? Is this not something he can be censured for in front of the Parliament at the very least? I don’t know the way things work in the British gov’t, but there’s got t be a way there for the Parliament to condemn this bonehead.

On a related note, the President and Prime Minister Blair held a joint news conferenced this evening, and continued to pledge to keep troops in Iraq for the foreseeable future:

WASHINGTON β€” President Bush and Prime Minister Tony Blair are going to work with their new partners in Iraq to determine when the Iraqis can sustain themselves and coalition forces can drawdown, the president said in a press conference with Blair on Thursday night.

“I have said that our commanders on the ground will make that decision. I will talk to General Casey once he has conferred with the new government in Iraq. They are in the process of getting a defense minister, they don’t have a defense minister yet … it probably makes a lot of sense for our commander on the ground to wait until their defense structure is set up before we discuss with them and he with me the force levels necessary to reach our objective,” Bush said.

Blair came away from his visit to Iraq speaking very positively and optimistically about its new government and new Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki. He said “it is the duty of the whole international community” to confront the forces that are trying to destroy the hopes of Iraqis who want to live the same type of life as those in free and democratic nations.

“I’m more than ever convinced that what is important for them in Iraq is to know that we will stand with them in defeating these forces of reaction,” Blair said.

“I came away thinking that the challenge is still immense, but I also came away more certain than ever that we should rise to it. And though it is at times daunting, it is also utterly inspiring to see people from all the different parts of the community in Iraq — the Sunni, the Shia, the Kurds — sitting down together, all of them democratic leaders, democratically elected by their people, elected for a four-year term, elected and choosing to come together as a government of national unity, and completely determined to run their country in a different way for the future,” he said.
