The BBC says:

Tony Blair has said the Iraq war made the world a safer place and he has "no regrets" about removing Saddam Hussein.

In a robust defence of his decision to back war, Mr Blair said Saddam was a "monster and I believe he threatened not just the region but the world."

Ever the lawyer, Blair will never admit to doing any wrong. For one thing, it might open the way to prosecution. For another, it would reduce how much money he could make on the American lecture circuit. Whatever, he started an illegal war which has resulted in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people and cost billions and billions of pounds. There is nothing honourable about his involvement in this fiasco.
