Tony Blair says he would have gone to war even if there weren't WMDs

Here. Now people are calling for a prosecution of him for war crimes. The difference between Britain and America is that lots of people over here pretty much knew that the whole thing wasn't about WMDs and didn't really care. They wanted to go to war anyways. When it turned out that there weren't any in Iraq there wasn't a sudden uprising of people who previously had bought into the WMDs thing. Instead, they just changed their justifications and kept on supporting the war. These are the wonderful Americans that the world points to when confronted with a crisis. The sheer amount of cynicism and insularity of us people here in the U.S. resembles that of a state like Serbia rather than any sort of decent democracy.
