Quote of The Day – Tony Blair


Tony Blair (Source: The Daily Mail)

On Friday, Tony Blair was questioned during an Iraq hearing in the UK.  Some believe the questioning was meant to embarrass Tony Blair (kind of like the Obama administration putting KSM on trial in the States — to embarrass and convict George Bush in public 0pinion).

But Tony Blair stood his ground.  Blair is a friend to the US and understands, as GW Bush did, the threat that Iraq posed and the even greater threat that Iran now poses.

Blair’s quote, from the Daily Mail:

Mr Blair insisted: ‘This isn’t about a lie or a conspiracy or a deceit or a deception. It’s a decision.

‘And the decision I had to take was, given Saddam’s history, given his use of chemical weapons, given the over one million people whose deaths he had caused, given ten years of breaking UN resolutions, could we take the risk of this man reconstituting his weapons programmes or is that a risk that it would be irresponsible to take?

‘The decision I took – and frankly would take again – was if there was any possibility that he could develop weapons of mass destruction we should stop him.’

…He warned that Iran’s nuclear weapons programme now poses an even greater threat.

And, in an apparent rebuke to Gordon Brown and Barack Obama, suggested that if he was still in power he would be championing military action.

The lefties in the US and UK have tried to brush Blair and Bush with some sort of lie/conspiracy meme with regards to the Iraq War.  Of course, multiple countries, the UN, Bill and Hillary Clinton, and many Democrats thought Saddam Hussein had WMD and said so.  Guess they were all in on the “conspiracy” and “lies”.

Ironically, the same type of people calling Blair a conspirator were outside on the streets during the hearing protesting Blair with “astroturf” signs that were all the same.  But no organizing or conspiracy there….nothing to see  at all….

Thanks, Tony Blair, for defending the right thing to do.

  1. Tony Blair is an arrogant, self opinionated liar who has caused the deaths of hundreds of servicemen and women and hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians – mostly women and children. We will be paying for his legacy of terror in the Middle East for generations to come. You want Tony Blair over there – you are welcome to him

  2. UK diss–

    What did Blair lie about?

    And I suppose you believe that it was perfectly OK for Saddam Hussein to murder and threaten thousands of his citizens.
    Murderous dictators -OK.
    Tony Blair – spawn of the devil.

    Why don’t you ask some of the Iraqis now living in freedom under a fledgling Democracy what they think of Tony Blair and George W. Bush?
    I’ll bet they enjoy their freedoms immensely more than the oppressive and violent tyrannical regime of Saddam Hussein.

    As far as legacy of terror — the only people causing a legacy of terror in the Middle East are the extreme Islamists who would like to cut the heads off of every Westerner they see, including you if you are in the UK.

    Just like the Leftists in the US, you’re priorities are backwards and your sympathies are on the side of evil.

    I’ll take Tony Blair….too bad Saddam Hussein met his justice, however….Then maybe we could send him to you and see how you would like living under him.
