Even though I totally condemn the invasion of Iraq by Georg W. Bush and Mr Blair, I must confess that I hold Mr Blair in high esteem, for finally admitting that they “western leaders” were actually ignorant of the real issues in Iraq and the Middle-East.

Going by what the world knows today, shouldn’t our leaders be learning from mistakes of the past and leave a people alone to manage their own affairs. Iraq and its’ neighbouring states are in a worst situation today than they were in the days of western-world proclaimed “dictatorship”. Judging by the number of lives lost in this senseless war from all sides and lives that are still bein lost everyday through terrorism, shouldn’t we simply live and let others live as they chose?
