Iran interested in backing terrorism and destabilizing countries? Former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair says it's unfortunately so. An interesting story from Iran Mania:
UK ex-Prime Minister Tony Blair has accused Iran of backing terrorism and warned the world faces a situation akin to "rising fascism in the 1920s", BBC reported.Before World War II there were voices who warned us of the threats that were building, the "winds of war." Tony Blair is one such voice. Will anyone listen?
Mr Blair told a charity event in New York that Iran was prepared to destabilise peaceful countries.
In his first major speech since leaving office, Mr Blair again defended the decision to go to war in Iraq.
He urged continued vigilance by the United States, Britain and their allies in combating the threat of extremism.
Mr Blair - now an envoy for the Middle East Quartet - warned against being "forced into retreat" as the world faced a situation similar to "rising fascism in the 1920s".
Hitler wasn't coy about his intents in the build-up to WWII; neither is Ahmadinejad. The Times of London throughout the 1930's gave no voice whatsoever to those warning of Germany and Hitler's intents. It's much like that today at the New York Times with Iran and Ahmadinejad. Little ink is wasted at the Times on the Iranian threat; plenty is expended on the voices Ahmadinejad apologists, however.
One can almost hear the keyboards on the Left now. "Blair Lies and Bush Lies!" and "Iran: bad, but US is worse!" is their answer to any news of an enemy attacking an American interest. Or in the case of Iran shipping IEDs into Iraq, attacking American troops. The countdown to the Left's first attempt to discredit what Blair's saying begins now.
