I guess the thing I've enjoyed most about the Tony Blair "We didn't cause Iraq crisis" row is the scope. I mean, sure, there's been at least a vague reckoning with the 2003 invasion and occupation and their terrible consequences, but even that vast, idiotic catastrophe isn't really the whole story, is it?
The fact is, the US and the UK, with sundry hangers-on, have been bombing Iraq on and off since 1991.
Can I put this in perspective? I'm 36 years old, so I was 13 when we first started blatting Iraq with missiles. When the first new drone strike hits Iraq, we'll have been attacking the place for almost two-thirds of my lifetime.
When our long war on Iraq began, Queen were still releasing records featuring a Freddie Mercury who was actually alive at the time. Nobody had yet heard that hideous Brian Adams song. Norman Lamont had just been made Chancellor. People were eagerly anticipating Ghost being released on VHS, and a sequel to The Terminator at the cinema.
Or to put it another way - when we started bombing Iraq, the very oldest player at the current World Cup had only just moved up to high school and around half of all the players you've seen so far were either toddlers, babies or unborn. Czechoslovakia were still playing internationals and would for another two years.
I mean, perhaps it's a coincidence that Iraqi society is in a state of utter collapse after 24 years of foreign bombing, sanctioning, invasion, occupation, market experimentation and partition.
Or, you know, maybe there's a link.
