Tony Blair yabbers on about why we mustn't give up in Iraq. "It is not easy to persuade people of all this; to say that terrorism and unstable states with WMD are just two sides of the same coin..."
I need no persuasion, but I've yet to hear ''any'' leading politician dispute the claim that the coin was pretty much constructed by those in the West, or at the least, allowed to run freely so long as activity was in the West's interests.
When the politicians start owning up to their part in creating this mess, I might start believing them for other things too. As it is, history damns them, and their continued skirting around the real issues just puts me off "real" politics even more.
