Telegraph has some interesting articles today: Iraq War: 'we have to face the truth and admit we failed' - Telegraph Iraq War: major new questions for Tony Blair - Telegraph Iraq War: Sir Christopher Meyer: 'I'm with you whatever', Tony Blair told George Bush - Telegraph What I would really like to know from Mr Blair is this. On the eve of the parliamentary vote on UK participation, GWB called Blair and in the course of that conversation offered THREE TIMES that UK troops didn't have to participate in the initial invasion. But Blair insisted that we would anyway. Basically he staked his premiership on this, when it would have been perfectly feasable to say "thanks, George, that gets me out of a right hole. You go ahead and invade and we'll help pick up the pieces afterwards". Why did he do this?
