Scotsman.com News - International - Blair 'convinced Bush' not to launch strike at Al-Jazeera
Some breaking news on the blogs, this item has just appeared in the Scotsman's evening edition. It's another leak from Downing Street and for once it puts Blair in a slightly more favourable light.
In essence, it seems the ape emperor attempted, in true cowboy style, to bomb the headquarters of the arab television and media station, Al Jazeera and was only talked out of it at the last minute by Downing Street. Given that Al Jazeera are based in Qatar, one can only imagine what might have happened if the strike had gone ahead. The arab league will not be happy.
