A journey of crime and terror

Blair said it was right to invade Iraq, even taking into account 'the nightmare that unfolded' there, and recounted that he wept on meeting one British soldier's widow.

 Blair has written a book about his journey of crime and mass murder.  He was protested in Dublin, and then canceled his book signing tour.  Blair, apparently, has no shame or ability to see how his actions and decisions have destroyed countless lives.  The funny part is - just having flip-flops thrown at him totally freaked him out - imagine what a whole day of a real war would do.  He would be wearing diapers for the rest of his life. 

Around the world, activists are moving Blair's books to the "crime" section of bookstores as a means of non-violent protest.  There is a facebook group for that, and I joined.  Not sure if I will find time to move books around though.
