Still crazy after all these years

At the Chilcot Inquiry, Tony Blair gave a bravura display of chutzpah only interrupted at the end by the anguished cry from the parent of a dead soldier. It is clear his earlier success in the equally illegal Kosovo intervention left undimmed his messianic zeal to discipline those “lesser breeds without the law”. As there was no barrister to cross-examine him and key documents were excluded, he was able to gloss over his disastrous Iraqi adventure. He even touted a new war against Iran although the nonsense talked in 2002 about WMD falling into terrorist hands applies equally today. The galling and ironic outcome for Gordon Brown is that he will shortly have to trail yet another command performance by his predecessor.
