Is there an award for former failures? If so these two would get more tropheys.

One is responsible for beautiful Iraq, the other for beautiful Japan.

Put Bush and Howard in the picture and you would have the four horsemen of total futility and incompetence.

That was the former President S. Abe's honorable award. Eventhough he just have a short period of time in terms as a President due to his unwell health, he got his great award, an international award. I admire him.

Zurcronium, well put. It's only those who don't have their heads buried deep in the sand who will realize how accurate your observation is.

Thanks guys, I am equally pleased with your comments and the nutty ones from the WMD are still in Iraq guys as well.

SushiSake3> I'm not a big fan of Blair and the other 3, but your support of a sweeping generalisation by Zurcronium is abit too much....each of the 4 has done good and bad, it just how you view it and what the balance is between. Having a balanced view of the world is not sticking your head in the sand, for that would be thinking that theres only right/wrong.

Better Tony Blair, GW Bush, John Howard and Shinzo Abe than Jacques Chirac, Jean Chretien, Helen Clark and whoever is playing Chairman Mao in China.

A man who did nothing being honoured by a liar who should have done far less. And that is a truly dead smile drawn across Blair's face. I hope he lies awake every night seeing the faces of all the dead and maimed he's responsible for.
