to get so upset at Blair because of Iraq, one would think that Blair robbed Ireland to pay for Iraq!

If I hear "the Iraq war was illegal" one more time my head will explode.
INFO TO NOTE:
The first Gulf War was NOT ended by the signing of a "peace treaty". It was ended by a CEASE-FIRE AGREEMENT. The significance of the difference is that if either party violates said stipulations of the cease-fire agreement, the other party can resume military operations under international law.
The final UNSC resolution found Iraq in "Material Breach" of the 1991 cease-fire agreement.
Case closed, for Pete's sake deny ignorance.
