After 4 Yrs:Blair Still Trying to Explain Iraq War to World?

Whew. You know you have a war that has no measurable effect, no end game, and no chance for success when, four years into the war, one of the top world leaders who still supports the war has to explain to the public and to the international community that his guys aren't the "killers."
Mr Blair made mention of this fact when he was asked about Iraq's soaring death toll at his monthly press briefing in Downing Street on Tuesday:

"But of course it is tragic when there's innocent people losing their lives in Iraq. Hundreds of thousands of them lost their lives, innocent people, under Saddam.

"Now thousands of them are losing their lives, but they're losing their lives because terrorists and because internal extremists, linking up with external extremists, are killing them," he said.

"It's not British and American soldiers that are killing innocent people, we're trying to protect innocent people."

Really? He still has to convince others of that? Who's convinced that this war is working out well? Who's convinced that an escalation of violence is the panacea?

Blair is like Bush and has gotten his millions from the deaths of others.

Britain should feel fortunate that at least he is leaving.

Don't we all wish Bush was in the final few days of being emperor?
