Tony Blair, former, British Prime Minister from May 1997 until June 2007
Controversial UK Prime Minister largely because of his subservient support of George W. Bush's patently ill-advised invasion of Iraq, also the humane rights infringements in Iraq, Afghanistan and further afield.
PS: Blair also known in Britain as Bush’s poodle. Finally Sir poodle!

“Beginning wars is relatively easy; it’s ending them that’s hard. Innocent people die; unintended consequences develop; bad situations can be made worse. It is the uncertainty, the absence of clarity until hindsight delivers it – too late – that makes leadership difficult” Tony Blair from his autobiography A JOURNEY page 229
