Tony Blair: Speaking the truth which must be spoken.
Just like his predecessor, Winston Churchill.
Radical Islam is world's greatest threat - Tony Blair
Properly reframing the issue:
Asked about the argument that Chechens, Kashmiris, Palestinians, Iraqis and Afghans were resisting foreign occupation, he said Western polices were designed to confront radical Islamists because they were "regressive, wicked and backward-looking".
Mr Blair told the BBC his view of foreign policy had changed as a result of the 9/11 attacks: "After 11 September, rightly or wrongly, I felt the calculus of risk had changed.
"There is the most enormous threat from the combination of this radical extreme movement and the fact that, if they could, they would use nuclear, chemical or biological weapons.
"You can't take a risk with that happening."
Mr. Blair is just being realistic, like Mr. Churchill was, vis-a-vis the Nazis.
