Patrick Cockburn in the Indie this morning rightly calls Blair's support of the Sunni Islam side in the Moslem civil war 'demented'. Just as well that absolutely no-one believes a word that Blair says anymore, then. But I think there's more than the dead Blair's Lazarus-like self-resurrection from his police protected exile from justice; he's a man still (rightly) denied national honours - though the Septics have given him a medal as a consolation prize - looking for big cash donations for the Blair Foundation to establish his legacy. Who better to butter-up than the despotic, mad tyrants who run Saudi Arabia? There's simply no-one on the Shia side with the sort of money Blair craves. Or in the amounts needed to counter the depths to which his reputation has sunk.
Blair's lunatic belief that Wahhabism is somehow better than the intolerance of the Iranian Ayatollahs is beyond understanding; what sort of joyless, sanctimonious world in which people have bits chopped-off for thinking the wrong thoughts does Blair imagine is a good thing? Of course if he's got a scrap of sanity remaining he doesn't. Just watch from where the next big donations to his ego-fund come.
