Tony Blair on those naughty terrorists:

“Let us expose the obscenity of these people saying it is concern for Iraq that drives them to terrorism. If it is concern for Iraq then why are they driving a car bomb into the middle of a group of children and killing them?”

Roughly translates as: “Let us describe as obscene anyone who implies that people have been driven to terrorism by any of my policies. If I make a reference to children, I will hopefully disguise the fact that it is also a non-sequitur.”

“We are not going to deal with this problem, with the roots as deep as they are, until we confront these people at every single level – and not just their methods but their ideas.”

Roughly translates as: “We are not going to deal with this problem. We are going to talk about roots, levels, methods and ideas (specifically evil IDeologies), to reinforce the fact that terrorism is just evil people and unrelated to any of our policies.”
