It would not be easy, it would take time. But pulling out now would end the dream for ever. Many Labour delegates who had expected to give Mr Blair a hard time on Iraq found themselves biting back tears instead. The cry for freedom has always found an answer among civilised nations.
Europe’s freedom was secured by defeating the Nazis. In America, Martin Luther King’s pleas to be “free at last” ended segregation. In South Africa, Nelson Mandela spent 30 years in jail to achieve freedom from apartheid. Today the enemy of freedom is al-Qaeda.
Only by securing freedom for nations like Iraq can we ensure our own freedom too.
