Of course he is, just like Bush and Cheney.

This is why we used to have laws concerning the press. By allowing one man to gain all the media outlets throughout the world the people of the world have lost the ability to fight his power and rule for themselves.

A protestor loaded with facts! He was right on each account. Blair's enormous paychecks from JPMorgan makes a laughingstock of our elected leaders, here and in Britain. Britain is one of the most corrupt countries in the world yet always manages to get a pass in American culture.

 Britain is one of the most corrupt countries in the world yet always manages to get a pass in American culture.

Britain is officially one of the least corrupt countries in the world, behind  the USA in the world corruption indices, why don't you try joining the dots, you hear about corruption in the UK, because it's newsworthy, in most countries you don't hear about it because it's normal.

I was visiting London during the rush into the Iraq war. I participated in the protests, which were not covered in the us press. Hey, hey ho, ho, Bush and Blair have got to go. Iraq was very profitable for Halliburton et al. and killed a tens of thousands of Iraq children and women. I've not been proud to be an American in many years. I don't like livinfg in a county controlled by the Koch borhters. Can you saqy "fascist"

I'd like to say that - but usually it doesn't get thru here unless it's mis-spelled.

Blair's testimony revealed how powerful the media has become in democracies. He had to cater
to the media moguls to avoid trouble. So, indirectly, the media is almost equally as powerful in
controlling the direction of the country. This is probably to some extent also true in this country, although nobody really knows and nobody is admitting anything and no phone hacking has been found. In this election year, at least we should be able to see some evidence of how the media influence the outcome if we pay close attention.

He caved. He didn't have to cater. He didn't exactly fight on the beaches etc. He just bent over - later sending thousands to their deeeeath.
Grow up - 'if we pay close attention' - I think your brain may have been hacked. Hacking phones is the least of the problems.

between despair and hope lays but one small step

When I first saw the link on HP it was titled: "War Criminal" (in quotes).
When I looked again it had been watered down to: "Tony Blair Branded War Criminal".

It seems the multi-millionaire ex British Prime Minister still has friends in very high places. And that's one of the problems why Blair will probably never see the inside of the International Criminal Court at the Hague.

If ever there was a politician who thinks himself above the law it's Tony Blair. Yet as long as there are protesters to take him to task, he'll have to keep justifying to himself just why that should be.

Why selectively pick on Blair or Bush? We have not had a constitutional war since WWII. How many Western leaders have you seen prosecuted for war crimes? How many members of Congress have been impeached for violating the oath of office?

Oh we can't do that. There would be NOBODY left.

Aside from Granada and Panama, why have we never won one? What's the point in fighting wars we cannot win? Even today's president continues to support the MIC. Eisenhower warned us, remember?

Our war should be on everyone in Congress.

"What's the point in fighting wars we cannot win?"
- It puts a country into more debt and that makes more money for bankers - who create money out of nothing - and then we pay interest on it
- the military industrial complex thrives. (Cold War apparently over)
There is no democracy - only the rule of money created or controlled by the one per cent.

Democracy is in the past history. Lost in time. The almighty tool that once brought hope to the people. Money will control the whole world soon. The new top 1% will be kings of this world.

War to protect a nation from an aggressor is necessary. War for oil rights is criminal.

I thought he was being tried as a war criminal not just someone from a crowd calling him one.

Bush sent so many British soldiers to their deaths based on falsified intelligence (sexing up). He followed that up by meeting Gaddaffi a terrorist who bombed and killed so many Americans and with BP oil arranged the release of the bomber. This is no different to say getting Timothy McVeigh lobbied and released by Blair.

Blair is in indeed a war criminal. Shame on you Mr. Blair.
