In 2009- Tony Blair stated. And I quote "I would've invaded Iraq anyway"
Should we believe that he's repentent?
Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair has said the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq was partly responsible for the emergence of the Islamic State militant group in the Middle East. But he insisted that toppling dictator Saddam Hussein had been the right thing to do.
Blair told CNN that “there are elements of truth” in the assertion that the war caused the rise of IS.
“Of course you can’t say those of us who removed Saddam in 2003 bear no responsibility for the situation in 2015,
Blair insisted that removing Saddam was the right thing to do, but apologized, as he has before, for failures in post-war planning.
“I apologize for the fact that the intelligence we received was wrong,” he said in clips released before the broadcast.
“I also apologize for some of the mistakes in planning and, certainly, our mistake in our understanding of what would happen once you removed the regime"Crocodile tears and carefully chosen language from an inveterate liar. ISIS arose in Iraq with the assistance of both Britain & the US. With much assistance from Israel.
