This stands out from the first letter:

"He [Blair] is convinced of two points: the threat is real; and success against Saddam will yield more regional success."

For him it did...the usual payoff for a Britsh PM who plays poodle. Cf John Major, chairmanship of The Carlyle Group Europe, US lecture circuit at 30 grand per hour, etc.
 
So, what, if anything, is to be done?

Is he saved by point one in the quote pointed out by @Archibald_gruffnut , or hung by the reality brought about by his conviction over point two?

In a vague continuation from the revelations discussed here, it seems Colin Powell's emails have escaped from Hillary's server and ended up in the hands of the press, revealing that Blair was set on making the case for following Bush into Iraq well ahead of the event, and even the dodgy dossier episode.

"The controversy over Tony Blair’s decision to back George Bush over the Iraq war has been rekindled after a memo emerged showing the Prime Minister pledged to support an invasion a year ahead of the conflict.

Details of the Prime Minister’s readiness to back the US in bringing down Saddam Hussein are contained in a note from Colin Powell, then Secretary of State, to George Bush, ahead of Mr Blair’s April 2002 summit with the President in Crawford Texas.

The memo was found in a batch of secret emails on the private server of Hillary Clinton, the former Secretary of State, which was made available by the US courts.
"
Tony Blair agreed to act as Iraq war cheerleader according to newly released US memo

Is there no end to this tossers duplicity and smarminess...?

Shock horror plans to invade / take action were put in place before the deadline.
Its hardly a revelation and despite the tinfoil communities assertions its not proof it was a conspiracy for the oil.
Theres not much point in having a deadline if you don't act upon it, which means preparing and preliminary planning well in advance.

Nothing will be done....look at Henry Kissinger..international warrants have been out on him for years, lives in the US with impunity as no extradition, still flits around the globe in private jets to do dodgy deals parked in dark corners of airports,never leaving the plane. If it gets that far, Bliar will just flee to the States. I'm sure that would be an immense blow to the Middle East Peace Process.
