The BBC says:

Former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair has described radical Islam as the greatest threat facing the world today.

He made the remark in a BBC interview marking the publication of his memoirs.

Mr Blair said radical Islamists believed that whatever was done in the name of their cause was justified - including the use of chemical, biological or nuclear weapons.

Mr Blair, who led Britain into war in Afghanistan and Iraq, denied that his own policies had fuelled radicalism.
The former British leader - who now acts as the Middle East envoy for the international Quartet - said that Iran was one of the biggest state sponsors of radical Islam, and it was necessary to prevent it by any means from developing a nuclear weapon.

"We need to give a message to Iran that is very clear - that they cannot have nuclear weapons capability, and we will stop them," he said.

Mr Blair said he was not advocating military action, but simply saying no option could be taken off the table.

Blair completely lost the plot and his soul over the illegal war against Iraq, and unfortunately he shows no sign that he learned anything from all the mistakes he (and Bush) made. Needless to say, it is not just "radical Islamists" who believe that "whatever was done in the name of their cause was justified", you just need to look at Blair (and Bush). And it is unbelievable that he seems intent on starting yet another war, this time against Iran. If the once crazy regimes of the US (Bush) and the UK (Blair) and the always crazy regime of Israel are allowed to have nuclear weapons, then the crazy regime of Iran should also be allowed to have nuclear weapons. Bush and Blair are responsible for far more deaths in the world than any Iranian. How can anyone believe that Blair has any contribution to make to the world as the Middle East envoy when he is so clearly biased (and pathological).
