One of the few reassuring things about being "pro-war" has been the stupidity of the opposition. Even when you count George W. Bush among your friends, the average intelligence of the anti-war bloc is still comfortably low by comparison. Hey, these people are in bed with the clone-crazy Raelians.

Unfortunately for Tony Blair, whose job and place in history depend on his being on the right side of this, the greatest argument of his career, Robin Cook is not an idiot.

He's still wrong of course.
