The Other Afrik - International - Iraq - United Kingdom - United States - Conflicts
In a speech in May 1997 newly elected Prime Minister Tony Blair stated “[m]ine is the first generation able to contemplate the possibility that we may live our entire lives without going to war or sending our children to war.” Friday, two wars and countless deaths later, Tony Blair appeared in front of the Chilcot Inquiry to answer questions on the war on Iraq. Anyone hoping for Tony Blair to show an ounce of contrition or remorse was in for a sore disappointment. Instead a relaxed and sun-tanned Blair lived up to his ’Teflon Tony’ sobriquet defiantly repeating his ’I did what I thought was right’ mantra whilst the pusillanimous Inquiry panel failed to land a punch.
