That is why it is so dangerous and risky to dance with the wolves !

Blair and Howard should remember very well how "happy and proud" they were all standing in ovation at the White House of Bush to receive golden handouts of horror-causing honors !  Just too bad that UK and Australia have to suck in some many thousands of refugees of all sorts from the Mid-East crisis.  No matter how politicians and militaries who caused such crisis with falsified intelligence upon a Iraq, a nation, the scars of cries and deaths will never ever disappear even when those fellows disappear from Earth.  Trump of the USA was quite right to say that Hussien and Gaddafi should have been left in place though far too late !  But, a traumatic obama_military is NOT learning anything form those disasters and crisis.  Instead, it is trying so hard to plant troubles over the water of South China Sea and that foolish Asia_Pivot confrontation against China.

Blair is facing the music over his part, but why do bush and dick continue under the radar over their part?
if you want something in life get off your backside, and do it yourself!! don't rely on others to do it for you

"And Tony Blair delivers a belated apology, in a roundabout way: “Of course you can’t say that those of us who removed Saddam in 2003 bear no responsibility for the situation in 2015.”

By way of justification he says that the intelligence on which they acted was faulty, which is nonsense. The Iraq invasion was never about faulty intelligence or weapons of mass destruction. It was about neo-imperialist ambitions – they gave it a title, neo-conservatism – to alter the reality of the Middle East, and it all went horribly wrong because all the assumptions on which this drive was based proved to be wrong. Iraq as a functioning country was destroyed. And the western powers have tried to do the same with Syria."
