Hard to learn from your mistakes when you don't believe you ever make any
Interesting to see Claire Shorts account of the build up to the Iraq war today. To me the war was an illegal one and Blair bears a heavy responsibility for legitimising the agenda of the Bush Administration. The shame about the Iraq enquiry is that the media seems focus all about the legality of the war. Important as it is, it is even more imperative that we learn from it and don't repeat the mistakes. It was a shame to see that Blair thinks there was nothing that he would do different and in fact he would be tempted to repeat his action in Iran!
