The return of Blair

In a world where we are becoming aware that despite great world wars and the trouble in the Middle East, there exists so much evil in the world. We humans never learn. It's not only on an International scale, however. How can men, because it is mainly men, target old age pensioners online to steal their money; how can men, because it is mainly men, abuse young children and aspiring young footballers for self sexual gratification? How? They were schoolboys in shorts once. How can men, because it is only men, descendants of those from foreign climes,  gang rape young English girls without shame? Evil, unmitigated evil. Why must we share the planet and its limited resources with these men, because it is mainly men?
On top of all this we now learn that another man, Tony Blair wants to make a comeback in politics. Has this man no shame? A failure as a Prime Minister says more about those who elected him than anything else, a telling indictment of the frailty of democracy where the Stupid vote for the person who promises most or merely because they don't want the 'opposition' to get in on ideological grounds. Blair was also a failure as a Middle East mediator overseeing the onset and results of the Arab Spring, a disaster for the region and the world which continues to this day. How did he escape further censure in the wake of the Chilcot inquiry? How can he live with the death of David Kelly?
Blair's interference in Iraq had far reaching consequences in terms of evil; it was almost as if he was playing the part of the antichrist, strange for a man who took up Catholicism so soon after leaving office. Indeed when it comes to evil, there is no more vivid demonstration of man's ability to inflict it than in the aggression of ISIS forces, moving into the Iraqi power vacuum left by Blair's orchestration of Saddam's downfall, with their brutal persecution of non believers in the opposition and waverers in their own ranks. Despite being warriors of the Lord of Mercy, Giver of Mercy, they show none as they pursue their goal of world domination; a world dominated by 7th century, outdated  sharia law.
There have been signs that things are on the up. I believe that in Theresa May the UK has a Prime Minister with the Country's interest paramount; she is not looking to feather her own nest like, for example, the discredited socialist, Baroness Scotland. What is it about these Labour politicians? The UK has voted to leave the ridiculous EU with its overpaid politicians and unnaffordable policies. The English football and rugby teams are performing well, Christmas is coming, 2017 is a prime number; Donald Trump will be inaugurated President of the US. And then we get the news about Blair!
