    There's a big step from not trying to stop the policy and actively supporting it (as they seemed to) though...

    Absolutely, and then going on to lie to the British public about WMD's, no regime change, not being a lapdog to Bush (which he plainly was) for months leading up to (and after) the invasion.

    I can't believe these people actually thought it was a good idea to launch a war on a sovereign nation in the middle east, so much so that they actually did everything in their power, including deception and manipulation, to make it happen.

    Boggles the mind.

    Perhaps a clue to part of their motivation was Meyer saying that he and Blair were treated like heroes in the US because of their unwavering support, and were cheered and applauded everywhere they went. Meanwhile back in the UK they were lying through their teeth to the (rightly) far more sceptical British public and politicians.
