'Britain's role is to unite the world'

It's some time since I talked about that Blair speech.

I'm not going to grace this with the line by line commentary that I sometimes do with one of Master Blair's more manic speeches, although this is certainly up there with his "forces of conservatism" or "reshaping the world" speeches.

Essentially the speech is saying that we should expend our blood and treasure on the middle east (as well as putting our citizens in danger) for the Middle East peace process, global poverty, the greenhouse effect and the United bloody Nations. It is even doubtful that this man grasps the difference between a physical enemy that can be defeated and a method of war, whether terrorism or weapons of mass destruction.
