Tony Blair Annoyed: 'everyone Is Ignoring Me'

Recommended Posts

Tony Blair is annoyed with Britons who ignore his words on Islamic State because of the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

Former Prime Minister Blair lifted the lid on his frustration at being sidelined in the debate on what to do about the bloody rise of Islamic State [iS] in Iraq and Syria.

[...]

"I'm out in the Middle East twice a month, I'm seeing it first-hand," he said.

[...]

since he left Downing Street in 2007, Blair has devoted his energies to business interests and being an envoy to the Middle East. That entitles him to be listened to the subject, he believes.

You couldn't make it up, this psychopath still wants to be taken seriously and wants to give advice on how to deal with middle east issues after all the damage he has done to the area... :wacko:

Can somebody please lock him up in a mental health ward in Baghdad!

Blair risked playing to type by insisting foreign troops on the ground are necessary to defeat the fundamentalist Jihadi group.

Wisdom is gained by learning from your mistakes.

Blair didn't learn anything from the biggest mistake of his life (how could he without first accepting it was a mistake?) but he expects to be treated as a source of wisdom anyway.

There's definitely some bit of brain that normal people have that Blair doesn't. Britain's first sociopath prime minister?

To be fair to Bliar, in this case he's probably right; if we're serious about dealing with ISIS then ground forces are the only option.

Unfortunately, having created this unholy mess with the 2003 invasion, there's no political will to commit the forces necessary to sort it out.

How long will it take Blair to propose installing a Sunni strong man to lead a secular dictatorship?

But Assad has been undermined by Western- and Saudi-backed terrorists. :blink:

"Jihadi John" is a nutter backed by a gang. Crusadi Tony was a nutter backed by one of the world's most powerful armed forces :ph34r:

ISIS is not our job to deal with.

Armed by us and the Americans, supplied by the Saudis, we have done enough damage as it is.

You are all being unfair. I think he should be sent for face to face talks with IS.

Yeah. And we could just send his face. IS would understand that as a gesture.

If he comes within stabbing distance, we might get interested in him.

Everything we|ve tried sorting out has ended up even worse. Time to cut our losses

The fact that we created the situation might suggest to some that we have a moral responsibility to intervene rather than wash our hands of the mess but that's irrelevant, the real question is whether it is in our interests to intervene.

You might be happy with a caliphate stretching from the Mediteranian to the Arabian seas, practicing a form of Islam that makes the Taliban look moderate, I have serious doubts about whether this is a safe outcome.

I think the Caliphate in question was always there before we drew some lines...we divided, we conquered.

Everything we've tried has been driven by the needs of the US political cycle and the fiction of bringing democracy to Iraq, nobody had the will to face up to the reality of the situation created by Bliar/Bush.

oh we did, we were bullied out of the way.

bush/blair were acting on orders from their superiors in countries a little way away to PROVOKE a conflict and make it a quagmire.

they should both be on trial for treason(and executed)

maybe a more fitting fate would be to hand them and their progeny over to isis for a fair trial.

What do you think we will achieve by war? Or, how would you like the middle east to look, and do you think it can be achieved by war?

After we kill millions more of them, the population of the Middle East will all love each other and thank us for killing their friends and relatives.

It just makes sense, dunnit? Bombing for Peace has such a long and proven history of working so well.

Bliar probably isn't taken too seriously on the global stage these days.

Takes us to war with Iraq & Afghanistan and later is given the plum role of 'Middle East Peace Envoy' (or similar). :unsure:

Loved it a few months ago when Tony was being harassed by Channel 4 News reporter and politician goader Michael Crick. Instead of dealing with the emerging threat of ISIS/ISIL, he was in London celebrating the 20th anniversary of becoming leader of the Labour Party. :D
