Blair, Steadfast To End, Stands By 'Fight We Cannot Afford To Lose'

Prime Minister Tony Blair's speech at Investors.com

"The forces that we are fighting in Iraq — al-Qaida on the one hand, Iranian-backed elements on the other — are the same forces we're fighting everywhere. Over these past few weeks you can see in different parts of the world — Morocco, Algeria, Pakistan, in Saudi Arabia recently — where this extremism is rearing its head, is trying to dislodge the prospects of stability and progress in so many different countries. There is no alternative for us but to fight it wherever it exists. And that is true whether it's in our own countries, which have both suffered from terrorism, or in Iraq or Afghanistan."
