As much as Blair supported Bush, I think that Bush was so hell-bent that even if he hadn't had Blair's support he still would have gone in...but Blair did make it easier on him.


At least Blair was able to admit mistakes and hold on to whatever shred of dignity he had left...Bush not so much.

ETA: NBC's Brian Williams will be in London tomorrow to interview Blair...I'm really looking forward to that one.

You're probably right, u2dem. Bush was awfully hell bent on invading Iraq. But, Blair made it easier for him by supporting him. Blair could have gone with Chiraq and Schroeder, but he didn't.

Its unfortunate to see Blair go. He has been an excellant ally of the United States for all of the years he has been in office. Its true his views did help lend more credibility to Bush's arguements and indeed did in some small way influence the political debate about Iraq in the United States. Still, in the years to come, the United Kingdom will continue to be the United States closest ally in both Iraq and Afghanistan, despite the much reduced level of British forces in Iraq that has actually been gradually declining ever since Saddam was toppled. British forces have been very successful in southern Iraq and their casualties have only been a fraction of the what the British military suffered in Northern Ireland in the early 1970s.

Hopefully Brown will be tough on Bush, it might give some credability back into our relationship other than monkey say monkey do.
