“Clare Short, who earlier had resigned from [U.K.] Prime Minister Tony Blair’s cabinet [on May 12, 2003] to protest the war [in Iraq], exclaimed [per The Independent on October 29, 2004], ‘It is really horrifying. When will Tony Blair stop saying it is all beneficial for the Iraqi people since Saddam Hussein has gone? How many more lives are to be taken? It is no wonder, given this tragic death toll, that the resistance to the occupation is growing.’ ”
