Not sure what his mental state is .I think he has told too many lies regarding Iraq that he believes they are true.
I have Kleptomania and when it gets bad I take something for it .

I read it in the Sunday Times.
He makes some good points. It is hard to believe that Iraq would not have ended up in a civil war anyway. It is also true that the body count in Syria is probably higher than in Iraq despite being a shorter conflict.
However he seemed to think that ISIS would have died a death had we intervened in Syria. That is simply insane. Going on past interventions, the number of Islamist nutters has gone up not down after intervention.
He has also (correctly IMO) identified that the region has problems built into it and attacked the tendency to blame ourselves for its issues as Westerners are wont to do. But there is no "If I had but seen that before 2003 then maybe I'd have acted differently". Why repeat the mantra about "the religion of peace" whilst in office and only now admit that certain sections of Islam are the central problem?

Thread tidied up, all grossly off-topic stuff removed. Please keep on topic.
Arguing with the forum trolls is like playing chess with a pigeon. No matter how good you are, the bird will **** on the board and strut around like it won anyway
