Tony Blair, Conservative Mole
Is there a war that harmed his party that Tony Blair doesn’t support?
British Prime Minister Tony Blair said Friday that going to war over the Falklands Islands against Argentina 25 years ago was the “right thing to do.”
Blair praised the “political courage” shown by former Conservative Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in assembling a task force to fight a war with Argentina over the disputed islands in 1982.
“I have got no doubt it was the right thing to do … for reasons not simply to do with British sovereignty but also because I think there was a principle at stake, which is that … a land shouldn’t be annexed in that way and people shouldn’t be put under a different rule in that way,” said Blair.
“When you look back on it and you talk to the people who were there at the time – and as I say I wasn’t even in Parliament at the time – I think it took a lot of political courage actually to do that,” he added.
