Yeah, I see it as tryong to ease his own conscience.. the majority of the UK is against the War it seems (I have yet to meet a Brit, online or off, that is for this war). 2 million people turned out for the Anti War Demo in February, that is ALOT of people for the UK.
But, I think it comes down to the fact that Blair is scared of Bush. He has been scared by Bush's "You're either with us or against us" speech. Just look at the backlash against France.. hell, people I know in the US are having the remains of relatives killed in WWI / WWII removed from France and shipped back the the US.
I feel ashamed to be British.
