The Enemy of My Enemy

Tony Blair recently delivered two speaches which you can read here:

Foreign Policy Center Speech: A Battle for Values

Australian Parliament Speech: Anti-Americanism is Madness

On everything other than the GWOT, I think he’s a loathesome statist socialist prick. In 9 years he has managed to turn the UK into a near police state. There are cameras on every corner, most everything is under government regulation of the most pernicious variety, and they have initiated non jury trials and non-judicial imprisonment through behavioral orders.

Overall they are really approaching V for vendetta territory, only from the left instead of from the right as Alan Moore envisioned in the 80s.

On this one subject however, he gets it right.
