Blair to go to Washington


Prime Minister Tony Blair is reportedly flying to Washington next week to meet President George W Bush.
The New York Times claims the meeting comes amid growing instability in Iraq and questions over the transition of sovereignty.

The White House and Downing Street have refused to confirm the report.

But unnamed British officials told the newspaper that the visit had been scheduled for some time and was not a crisis summit on Iraq.

methinks Georgie boy is looking for TB to bail him out , set him up as the spokesman re the increase in"activity"there hoping to help is own re election campaign at home............... and Tony wont even see it coming ....bless him :x
Is it too much to hope that TB is going to stay in the USA, and announce that he will be Dubya's running mate? :lol:
Uncoordinated? So it's a coincidence that they went after the same targets everywhere - police stations, govt offices and mosques? That sounds to me like co-ordination. That sounds to me like a strategy - dominate the symbols of power, get rid of any cops who won't play and incorporate the rest.
