The British government is wasting valuable time and money on this inquiry.
For the sake of clarity -

I would like it to be noted that the Iraq Inquiry/ Chilcot Inquiry has not as of yet finished - it's results are still pending as was highly publicized in the tabloids, it would end after the 2010 General Elections - http://en.wikipedia.org...
Facts can not yet be established as not all of the facts have not yet been revealed - Con is stating a personal opinion, not fact.
Please see following link and check the paragraph pertaining to 'UN Security Council Resolution 1441' - The initial cause Tony Blair and Labour Government used to get Britain involved in Iraq - http://www.newstatesman.com...

Point 1 only - But, as I think by way of consensus we can all agree, soldiers have a chance of dying, this is not a point worth making by Con as a negative against the inquiry.
I will post a reply, if I feel Con has brought up a better argument.
