Blair, either by accident or more probably design, glosses over the history, and refuses to acknowledge that the war, started by himself and Bush on the basis of lies and false information, was in fact only part of a far more complex situation, going back for almost 100 years and that the Blair/Bush war is only one of the many "chickens" now coming home to roost.
