An isolated Tony Blair says Iran and Syria face a "clear strategic choice":
"They stop supporting terrorism in Lebanon or Iraq, they abide by - not flout - their international obligations. In that case, a new partnership is possible. Or alternatively they face the consequences of not doing so - isolation."Yeah, sure Tony. How are those UN sanctions coming along anyway? Not so good, I hear.
After all this time, still no apology, still threats and macho posturing.
Here's the even more isolated George W. Bush, waddling like a duck but trying hard to sound even more macho than Blair:
"If they continue to move forward with the [Iranian nuclear] program, there has to be a consequence. And a good place to start is working together to isolate the country. And my hope is, is that there are rational people inside the government that recognize isolation is not in their country's interest."Having leaders who are globally isolated is in nobody's interests, quite frankly. Not Syria's, not Iran's, not Britain's, not the USA's, not Australia's...
Sing it, John:
People say we got it madeIsolation didn't work with Saddam, it hasn't worked with Burma/Myanmar, Mugabe, Sudan, Cuba...
Don't they know we're so afraid
We're afraid to be alone
Everybody got to have a home
Just a boy and a little girl
Trying to change the whole wide world
The world is just a little town
Everybody trying to put us down
I don't expect you to understand
After you caused so much pain
But then again you're not to blame
You're just a human, a victim of the insane...
We're afraid of everyone
Afraid of the sun
The sun will never disappear
But the world may not have many years
Let's start talking, please.
