Voice in the Wilderness

Now that the United States has made the apparently faith-based decision that Syria is using chemical weapons, the Ascended Incarnation of the Reverend Blair has felt free to intervene in his inevitable fashion. There is, it seems, no violence in the Middle East that cannot be resolved in tip-top fashion by greater violence from the crusader states. The poodle yapped with indignation at the idea of chemical weapons being used: "this will be the first time since Saddam used them in the 1980s" with the enthusiastic approval of Britain and the US, which themselves have resorted to depleted uranium and white phosphorous on only a few insignificant populations. His reverence is also exercised about the underhanded involvement of Iran via Hezbollah; Tony prefers people who fight cleanly and in the open, like Israel in Lebanon. His reverence recommended no-fly zones and régime change, since they worked so well in Iraq, and expressed a certain annoyance at Iran for complicating things so much, meddling where the West has intervened and destabilising what the West has kicked to bits. "It's exactly the arguments we went through over Iraq," his reverence said. Clearly, the rest of us still have much to learn.

    At least when he finally dies there won't be a Thatcheresque parade. No one really likes him.

    Here lie the bones of Tony B,
    Both Catholic and C of E;
    Who lied his country into war,
    And now lies quieter than before.
