Tony Blair's rise to power was meteoric. With his “New Labour, New Britain” slogan he snatched the biggest victory for his party
Mr. Blair may have taken “full responsibility” to lead his nation into the war, but does it absolve him of the immorality of the whole affair?
Tony Blair says the world would be "in a worse position" had he not taken the decision to invade Iraq.
What is evidently cynical and self-gratifying in the so-called apology are in defence of the West's periodic invasions of countries in the Third World since the end of World War II. Blair's blaming the so-called “faulty intelligence” for the 2003 Iraq invasion is not only a flimsy fig leaf, ominously, it is also an attempt to defend the ongoing Western involvement in Syria in the name of saving innocent lives from Assad's military.
