Julia Hartley-Brewer: Tony Blair must not apologise — invading Iraq was the right thing to do
Hindsight is a wonderful thing, isn’t it?
If, way back in March 2003, someone had told Tony Blair that his decision to join the US military invasion of Iraq would result in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of innocent people, leaving an entire region in chaos and despair, and ultimately create the power vacuum that would enable the rise of the murderous Isil fundamentalists, he may well have had a last minute change of heart.
That chain of events, after all, is a pretty big burden for anyone’s shoulders to bear.
Our politicians sadly don’t get the benefit of hindsight when they are making life or death decisions.
