Blair: 'George Bush is mijn vriend'

Frank Roels (2010) DEWERELDMORGEN.BE.
abstract
Tony Blair, promoting his memoires in Amsterdam, had a long talk with Wouter Bos, previously Netherlands vice-prime minister. Blair admires George W. Bush because he took a deeply impopular decision (to invade Iraq); he showed courage and power. The lies about WMD, about Al Qayda, his defense of waterboarding... are not essential for Blair: Saddam was a dictator and had to be done with. In another interview (De Standaard) Blair says he is mostly inspired by religion. Religious fanaticism is on the rise he says. About the pope Blair says: he is an exceptionally honest and respectable person; I support him. We conclude that it appears more probable than before that Blair and Bush were inspired by their religious belief when deciding about Iraq. Since it is unlikely they actually had a direct line with God, they are hallucinating religious fanatics in command of nuclear weapons. May God save us.
