    Click to Buy Tony Blair’s ‘A Journey’

    As the press compete to decide which is the biggest stick with which to beat Tony Blair into the pulp he clearly deserves to become –

    (the “animal”, the “indiscrete”, the “warmonger” over Iran, the “revenge seeker” , the nasty, twisted GW Bush lover – the SEX thing)

    and as his memoir seems to be about to break all records – this country’s most influential statesman goes about his business: being influential and statesmanlike.

    Irritating, isn’t it, littlies?

    Addendum, sort of, in the middle – John Rentoul has this regarding Chris Mullins. WHO? Chris Mullins, the former Labour MP whose “View from Somewhere not quite near the Centre of Politics“, the sainted BBC decided was their Book of The Week last week. Amazing! The world is queuing up to place Blair’s A Journey top of the best-selling political books ever and the Beeb in their omniscience are serialising “A View From the Outer Edges”. How many more times can they get it all so, so wrong?

    “Getting really bored with the persistence with which people pursue their anti-Blair propaganda, steadfastly refusing to see any good in the man.” – AND – “Tony Blair was the greatest Prime Minister since Winston Churchill and the only regret I have he didn’t get my vote as I live in Canada.”

      The “Blair quote worth remembering” amounts to little more than an elaborate version of “they hate us for our freedom.”

      One must assume it a total coincidence that Britain and Spain suffered horrific attacks soon after their involvement in Iraq.

      One must also ignore an array of qualified opinion, most recently former MI5 head Manningham-Buller, who assert the opposite and claim Iraq caused radicalisation: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-10693001

      One must also go even further and dismiss the result of study after study, from independent sources as diverse from Israel to Saudi (who can hardly be accused of orchestrating together) that found that the VAST MAJORITY of foreign fighters in Iraq had no previous record of terrorism and had become radicalised by the war itself: http://www.boston.com/news/world/middleeast/articles/2005/07/17/study_cites_seeds_of_terror_in_iraq/

        Try,

        Ref your quote of my quote of Blair’s quote:

        The “Blair quote worth remembering” amounts to little more than an elaborate version of “they hate us for our freedom.”

        Does it now? Well, that’s a reasonable start, Troy. But it means FAR more than that. Mainly, imho, that they are USING western liberalism and the wars in the Middle East to weaken us from within. The plan being – first they pass the blame from them to us (as they have done so well with Palestine> Israel); then they campaign and use widespread internet and press propaganda to show dead bodies, especially children, regardless of who actualy killed them. (Unlike those attached to Islamist fundamentalism the west CARES about dead bodies.) At the same time they blacken the names of those leaders in the west who want to bring democracy to their countrymen and women. OUR leaders, we are reliably informed are the REAL killers, with malice aforethought and ulterior motives galore. After all they, (Blair & Bush for instance) ALWAYS went about killing people, didn’t they?

        This transference of blame and upside-down thinking is now so endemic in the west that it often takes non-westerners to say “hang on a minute. These people have been intent on the destruction of the west for decades.”

        As for what “one must assume, ignore or dismiss” – if the radicalisation of those newly-minted terrorists is ONLY to do with the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, why hasn’t it now stopped? At least in Iraq. Answer – because it isn’t due to those wars. It never was.

        Your call, one must conclude, is a counsel of despair.

        It was the west wot dun it! So we must get out of th eMiddle East, grovel apologetically and leave the poor dear fundamentalists to sort out their own.

        Sorry, there are more authorities to read and believe/or not than those you quote. There always are.
