Total number of excuses: 0
"Let us expose the obscenity of these people saying it is concern for Iraq that drives them to terrorism. If it is concern for Iraq then why are they driving a car bomb into the middle of a group of children and killing them?
"We are not going to deal with this problem, with the roots as deep as they are, until we confront these people at every single level and not just their methods but their ideas."
In a 75 minute media conference Mr Blair said there was no justification for suicide bombing whether in Israel or in "Palestine, Iraq, in London, in Egypt, in Turkey, anywhere. In the United States of America, there is no justification for it. Period".
I think I agree with Mr Blair, and I suspect that Mr Noggle would do likewise.
