 Tony Blair and Iraq: blithe ignorance John Sloboda - openDemocracy

Much as it might pain Tony Blair to accept the consequences of his ill-conceived foreign adventures, decision-makers need to recognise the link between military intervention in Iraq and the deaths of many thousands of innocents, as well as the subsequent and ongoing collapse in civil security for ordinary Iraqis.
