Prince Charles tried to stop war. Prince thought Tony Blair was wrong on Iraq and mocked him as 'our glorious leader'. PRINCE Charles was so convinced Tony Blair was WRONG to take Britain to war in Iraq he broke Royal tradition and actively campaigned against the invasion, the News of the World can reveal. News of the World Just watched this piece being discussed on the BBC. They hinted that Charles was in a no win situation, damned if he did damned if he didn't, in regards to war; being pro the armed forces, while at the same time being anti war, especially when it is counterproductive. I have a feeling that HRH isn't the only person who feels the dissonance.
