Tony's come to Jeezus moment

A little public buyer’s remorse, Tony Blair? He’s probably privately dropped to his knees more than once asking whether he got the wrong message from above before getting in bed with Bush.

British Prime Minister Tony Blair said God and history would judge whether he was right to go to war in Iraq, according to the transcript of a television interview to be broadcast later on Saturday.

In a rare reference to his Christian religious faith, Blair told broadcaster Michael Parkinson he had struggled with his conscience over the decision. “That decision has to be taken and has to be lived with,” he told ITV’s Parkinson program.

“In the end there is a judgment that, well, if I think if you have faith about these things then you realize that judgment is made by other people.” Asked what he meant, Blair added: “By other people, by, if you believe in God, it’s made by God.”

Blair, a regular church-goer, declined to elaborate when asked if he prayed to God before making such a decision.

It’s interesting to know that Blair and Bush thought they a God hotline guiding their decisions; the problem is that it sounds like Satan must have executed a little identity theft or tapped that line.
