    Did Blair sign up for war in April 2002?

    My guess is that he did, based on the lunatic rantings of a right wing fundamentalist extremist from another country, Blair committed British troops to an illegal invasion. From the Independent: The Crawford Deal: did Blair sign up for war at Bush's Texas ranch in April 2002?

    Last September, highly embarrassing leaked documents showed that as early as March 2002, the Prime Minister's foreign policy adviser, Sir David Manning, was assuring Condoleezza Rice of Mr Blair's unbudgeable support for "regime change". Days later, Sir Christopher Meyer, then British ambassador to the US, sent a dispatch to Downing Street detailing how he repeated the commitment to Paul Wolfowitz, the US Deputy Defence Secretary. The ambassador added that Mr Blair would need a "cover" for any military action. "I then went through the need to wrongfoot Saddam on the inspectors and the UN Security Council resolutions."
    And Blair has already admitted, on several occasions that he would have stood "shoulder to shoulder" with the toxic texecutioner, regardless of any "evidence" on so called weapons of mass destruction. See all recent "A Logical Voice" posts
