Johann has some fascinating gems here, particularly with reference to Blair's complete ignorance of the bloody and tyrannical history of US covert intervention in the ME and Latin America. He didn't even know who Mossadeq was.
Big, fucking surprise.
Some chap called Avi Shlaim agrees.
"Blair has the audacity to say that God will be his judge over the Iraq war. This is a curious attitude for a democratic politician to adopt. History will surely pass a harsh judgment on Blair. He has the worst record on the Middle East of any British prime minister in the past century, infinitely worse than that of Anthony Eden, who at least had the decency to accept responsibility for the Suez debacle."
