    Finally... the Brits get a chance to put this sorry mess behind them.

    A part of the PNAC's and Rumsfeld's 'Coalition of The Willing' bringing home the last remaining troops to give this current Labour government one less headache to worry about. London knows full well Obama has had enough but can't extricate troops as easily.

    Sadly, the ugly stain will remain. Some things just cannot be undone.

    I certainly will. It's shameful that he plays any current or future part in UK or world politics. How the *** he has the nerve to serve as any kind of middle-east peace envoy is totally beyond me.

    This was a once-in -a-generation political abomination and if nothing else should serve as a salutary reminder not to start wars unless you are damn certain of the justification and the probable outcome.

    To bad we can't finally get to this point here in the US.

    As far as I'm concerned its not over until the verdict comes in at Blair's trial.

    Agreed. Unless the attack comes to us or one of our allies, we (US, Britain, all allies) shouldn't do anything that even remotely lead to a war.
