himselfanother ground war in the middle east means that this time he will put his own son into danger before anyone else’s. I can loan Euan Blair a Land Rover, but does someone have a spare rifle to loan him ? It doesn’t need to be an excellent rifle, just about good enough/fairly reliable will do.
Is he wrong?

Then work out who you are fighting
Then work out how to bring peace and stability to the region
Who should be your allies
What the objectives are
How you are going to achieve them
Plus a lot more then put the option of troops on the ground on the table.
Statement of the obvious really, ground war needed. In Syria this is happening with a combination of Iraqi, Kurdish, Syrian and Russian forces. Libya is rather more disjointed at preseng but an effective ground war will come.
I find your constant defence of Blair quite touching ninfan. And it says so much about both of you.

What is “victory”
How do you stop a ground war from becoming a massive recruitment poster?
How much of the region are you willing to invade to accomplish the unstated aims?
To say so is “defending” him how ?
I think you’ll find that like you ninfan is constantly defending Blair from criticism.
Two dyed-in-the-wool rightwing Tories defending a “Labour” politician who is otherwise almost universally criticized.

but nobody actually disagreeing with him!
A ground war will not kill off isis, same as it didn’t really work in Afghanistan and the taliban.
If anything it will plunge those involved further into difficulties and probably be extremely bad for the civilians there. However doing nothing is also a bad solution.
Guess it’s actually a really complicated situation that might otherwise have a solution. It certainly doesn’t have one that won’t involve a lot of pain.Posted 3 years ago
