A Manifestation of Evil or Just Plain Madness?

This was followed, before the end titles rolled, with ten seconds of silence, a hell of a long time in television when the camera is still running. During this silence Blair looked confused, bewildered, deeply troubled and frightened, rather like a rabbit caught in the car headlghts. I think it is not unreasonable to speculate that he was thinking to himself something very like the following: “Shit! I should never have agreed to do this fucking interview!”

On the eleventh second he managed a forced, nervous smile and muttered, “Is that that, then?”

It’s not quite that (the end) because our Tony is now the Quartet’s Middle East envoy. When I was discussing the programme with the former senior BBC producer quoted above, he said to me: “Alan, don’t be surprised if somebody responds to your article by saying, ‘Perhaps Blair is the right man to try to bring peace to the Mddle East because they’re all mad, too!’”

I have long believed and often said on public platforms that it was wrong to describe Blair as “Bush’s puppet”. Blair was one of them. I mean that he was, is, something of a neo-con and not that far away from being a Christian Zionist, as his predecessor at the time of the Balfour Declaration was. (There is speculation that Blair wants to convert to Roman Catholicism, but the Vatican seems to be in no rush to look upon that prospect with favour).

As The Blair Yearsdocumented, he was, in fact, in favour of using force to topple Saddam Hussein when President “Dubya” Bush was opposed. That was before 9/11. It was only after that dreadful event, and because of it, that Bush became the puppet of Vice President Cheney and his neo-con associates, many of whom were, are, hardest core Zionists. I think they probably could not believe their luck when Prime Minister Blair first arrived in Washington.

It was also Prime Minister Blair who opened the door wider to Zionist lobby funders who were keen to purchase some of what passes for democracy in the UK. And today Prime Minister Gordon Brown is paying the price for that. If I was advising Brown, I’d tell him to come clean and ask for understanding while he cleared up Blair’s mess on this account.

  1. Lord Cerne Abbas:

    A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and he carries his banners openly. But the traitor moves among those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the galleys, heard in the very hall of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor—he speaks in the accents familiar to his victims, and wears their face and their garment, and he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation—he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of a city—he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to be feared…….Cicero, 42 B.C.E.
