Tony Blair - STFU

WTF - first Bill Clinton and now Bush's Poodle? Do they think once in power always in power?

Tony Blair calls for intervention after use of chemical weapons by President Bashar al-Assad and Hezbollah involvement

Tony Blair has waded into the debate over UK policy on the Syrian civil war, saying the Government should consider imposing a no-fly zone over Syria to prevent "catastrophic consequences."

The former prime minister and current peace envoy to the Middle East said there was a danger both sides will begin to use chemical weapons as an "acceptable form of warfare" if no action is taken.

In an interview with The Times, he said: "I feel very strongly we are in danger of a failure with catastrophic consequences if we’re not careful.

"This is no longer a civil war between factions within Syria. We should be taking a more interventionist line. That’s where I come from in politics. People can agree or disagree with it.”

The two developments which he says have “completely changed the game,” for him are the revelation of Hezbollah's open involvement in the battle over Qusayr, and US and UK confirmation of the use of chemical weapons by President Bashar al-Assad.http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/middle-east/syrian-civil-war-tony-blair-calls-for-intervention-after-use-of-chemical-weapons-by-president-bashar-alassad-and-hezbollah-involvement-8660114.html

1. so what happened on the 'blair shagging murdoch's wife' front? that's about the only thing

 

i'm interested in where blair is concerned.

if obama is resisting involvement in syria & blair & clinton & bush are trying to force him in, it makes me like obama more.
