It is no coincidence that shortly after the execution, the U.S. President identified Syria and Iran as the enemies of Iraq and raided an Iranian Consulate in Iraqi Kurdistan.

31-01-2007 09:59Here is a small confession : I don't consider myself to be normal. I wish I was. I strive to save energy, reduce the damage I do to the planet and work hard to think of solutions to our environmental crisis. That is not normal.

The deputation delivered a hand written letter giving Blair probably the most valuable and crucial advice anyone had ever given him whilst he was still in occupation of the post that is identified with that address, to save his fast disappearing legacy.
