Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair: Obama blew it in Iraq by pulling troops out too soon

Former P.M. Tony Blair broke his silence regarding Obama’s “strategy” in pulling troops out of Iraq too soon.

Defiant Mr. Blair said he was determined to reply ‘forcefully’ to ‘inevitable’ claims about his record in Iraq following the rapid advance of ISIS.

‘I understand, following Afghanistan and Iraq, why public opinion was so hostile to involvement.

‘But every time we put off action, the action we will be forced to take will ultimately be greater. Instead of re-running the debate over Iraq from 11 years ago, we have to realise that whatever we had done or not done, we would be facing a big challenge today.

‘It is bizarre to claim that, but for the removal of Saddam, we would not have a crisis. We have to re-think our strategy towards Syria and support the Iraqi government in beating back the insurgency.

‘Extremist groups, whether in Syria or Iraq, should be targeted. However unpalatable this may seem, the alternative is worse.’

Blair pointed out that Al-Qaeda was beaten to submission 4 years ago and have begun a slow rise back to power given the absence of US Troops.: Apparently, : the current state of affairs is everyone’s fault but Blair’s. Obama clearly: was mistaken to pull troops out before there was stabilization. Yet another example of Obama’s weak policy decisions influencing the world’s view of America.
