I missed the first of the Bush and Blair press conference on Iraq but I did see most of it. I thought Bush was more articulate than usual and Blair less. But Blair did pose a good question: If what we are doing in Iraq is not important why is the enemy so determined to stop us? What are they afraid of?
Democracy is the answer to the question.
I might add, the press was its usual obnoxious, self important, arrogant, pompous, rude, shallow, banal self.
