Tony Blair Says “Pretty Please, Mr. Russian President!”

Just in case you wondered how a sitting Prime Minister of the U.K. can be talked into a war any British historian could have told you he wouldn’t win, wonder no longer. Tony Blair negotiates like a girl getting her pigtails pulled.

Check out the latest from the G8: Tony Blair respectfully requests assurances from Putin that there will be no new Cold War: U.K.

“Many people are concerned about the direction Russia is heading,” Blair said in an interview on BBC News 24. While there is little danger of a new Cold War “it would be sensible for the Russians to give reassurance on that,” Blair said.

Tony Blair in the Role That Made Him FamousUm. Allow me to point out the obvious: Putin is making waves because he wants something, and his bargaining chip is a threat of a new Cold War. So, no, I don’t think Mr. Blair is going to get the “assurance” that he’s looking for, precisely because Mr. Putin is counting on the rest of the world believing he’s not “sensible” the way Tony Blair would like him to be.

By the way, does Tony Blair ever remind you of any other diplomatic robots with English accents? He does me.  Perhaps his real name is Anthony Daniels Blair?

Amidst all this talk of a new Cold War and other geopolitical happenings around the world I would like to remind people of five important points today. Utah, Omaha, Gold, Juno and Sword. Lest we forget.
