Smooth Criminal

The difference between Tony Blair and George Bush has always been that Blair is intelligent enough so that you believe he can persuade himself to swallow his own line of bullshit; while Bush comes to the same conclusion because he's not smart enough to recognize it.

So different method, same result.

But as Booman notes the bottom-line in regards to Blair yesterday is that he used honeyed-words to reveal that invading Iraq was going to be done even if it was illegal and that Britain just HAD TO BE a co-conspirator.

Which is pretty much "might makes right".
