RE: Why did Blair get involved in Iraq?

How can you ignore the racism? It seems to be an implicit component of the white man's burden. Can find the same attitude right here at home with the idea of civilizing native americans.

As an explanation of British motivation I don't find it very convincing. It that motivation was so compelling, why didn't the Canadians go along too? (Too many French there I suppose?)

...why did the Australians? What's up with the English-speaking world that drives many of its "leaders" to support imperial mis-adventures?

Wait a minute, you guys don't think that the rich Anglo Saxon nations are ganging up on the brown people and stealing all their shit do you? No way man, thats un-American. You guys are a bunch of haters and extreme liberals.

Maybe be we should rename the thread "What would you like to believe is the reason Tony Blair got involved." That might explain most of the topics on this board. I hope a sense of objectivity comes back to the forum. It's worse than D.C. around here!HAHA!
