Tony Blair's Vanishing Act

That sound you don’t hear is Tony Blair tiptoeing out of Iraq.

While applauding Bush’s decision to send more Americans into Baghdad, the Prime Minister is telling his Parliament that the British operation in Basra “has been successful” and “will be completed in the next few weeks.”

Sometime soon, he will announce that half of the 7200 British troops there will be withdrawn.

Blair, who was impersonating Winston Churchill during the invasion, is now sounding more like Neville Chamberlain proclaiming “peace in our time.”

Sounds like an exit strategy worth considering: We won, and we’re leaving.
