Ideology and Blair

Just a quick note, as I have a seminar in a moment...

But if Bush's justification for the war in Iraq on a personal level is his NeoConservative ideological perspective what is Blairs? I mean, everyone knows (yes that is beginning to be an overly accepted thing) that it was all spin and reasonings on a public level either were not the correct ones or were in some way increased to create a truthful and morally acceptable (well to some) reason for war... Then why did he take us there?

The need to fit in with his peers? (George Bushy-wooshy)

The fact is that everyone is so fucking baffled, of the war, of the political parties inability to actually represent individuals(as mass uniform single-issue groups) without the use of newspaper headlines, and of the sudden realisation that everything we believe in politically is fair game.

Its shameful. Its fucking scary.

Its still unclear to me as to why Blair supported and followed Bush and the neocons so steadfastly down the rathole that Iraq has now officially become. I mean we all know Bush is an abject moron, however it always seemed that Blair was actually quite intelligent. Puzzling really.
