The Case for War A question has struck me: How much did the leaders of other countries influence a person's support for the Iraqi Bush War? Did, for instance, Bush's position have any direct impact on the British public, or did Blair and Her Majesty's government serve as the exclusive conduit for presenting considerations to the British people? I know for a fact that the allegedly "sexed-up" dossier made a big splash in the US, and was debated heavily on the news-talk networks. Quite obviously, the German people reacted to Bush and Blair, and on our side of the pond there were accusations that the leadership buckled to the anti-war movement for electoral popularity. Around the world, people and politicians either supported Bush or were incensed by his position, but in the case of the primaries: US and UK mostly, but others who contributed, what role did foreign leaders play in building the case for war in any individual's mind? Americans: Did Blair's presentation help reaffirm the cause for war, or just recycle Dubya's position? British: How much did Bush's presentation affect your perception of Blair's position, or of other factors related to the war? I'm just curious. Obviously, the American anti-war movement has some interest in the British row. But what role did that really play in Americans' sentiments? And what role did Bush play for non-Americans who supported the war? :m:, Tiassa Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!
