Hero Tony Blair stood trial today in Great Britain over his brave decision to send troops to Iraq to free the people from the mass murderer Saddam Hussein. Blair made the decision back in 2003. Since then the US and allies have secured the nation and won the war thanks to the leadership of George W. Bush.

The trial was set up to humiliate Former Prime Minister Tony Blair for his decision to bring freedom to the persecuted Iraqis and stability to the Middle East. Blair stood his ground saying he would make the same decision today as he did back in 2003. He also took a couple of swipes at the current weak leadership in Washington and the UK.
The Daily Mail reported:
Mr Blair insisted: ‘This isn’t about a lie or a conspiracy or a deceit or a deception. It’s a decision.
‘And the decision I had to take was, given Saddam’s history, given his use of chemical weapons, given the over one million people whose deaths he had caused, given ten years of breaking UN resolutions, could we take the risk of this man reconstituting his weapons programmes or is that a risk that it would be irresponsible to take?
‘The decision I took – and frankly would take again – was if there was any possibility that he could develop weapons of mass destruction we should stop him.’
…He warned that Iran’s nuclear weapons programme now poses an even greater threat.
And, in an apparent rebuke to Gordon Brown and Barack Obama, suggested that if he was still in power he would be championing military action.
Godspeed, Tony Blair.
Thank you for being a friend to America, a friend to the Iraqis and a champion of freedom.
