    It was arrogant of the West not to have listened to India's warnings on terrorism said the former British Prime Minister in an interview to NDTV.

    I must say that Tony Blair really looks good as he's gotten older, with his silver-haired look. But I think he's perhaps being a little silver-tongued by telling Indian audiences what we want to hear. Cameron does the same thing while in India, and then he turns around and says the opposite when in Pakistan.

    As for his interviewer Barking Mutt, I see that she's also been trying hard to soften up her normal pug-faced look. However, no amount of plastic surgery and lipo-suction will hide her pugnacious personality. Note her need to interrupt Blair to mention that she also has many Pakistani friends - as if the interview is about her rather than him. Pathetic.

    As for the West ignoring India's warnings on Pakistani terrorism, that was obviously deliberate, since they all thought they could ride the tiger, and harness the jihadism exclusively for harassing the Soviets, etc, naively thinking that none of it would blow back on them. Now that they're reaping the whirlwind, they're all trying to sing a different tune.

    Islamic terrorism was and is inevitable, When you compare their own accomplishments to ours ... In most of the contests it's not just that our score is higher, it's that their score is zero. They have nothing whatever they can point to that can save face and preserve their egos. In every practical objective way we are better than they are, and they know it. And since theirs is a "face" culture, one driven by pride and shame, that is intolerable and since they have no military power and little economic power they turn to terrorism. Thats why they hate the Jews so much, the Jews came to Israel built a modern sucessful democratic country in just a few years while they are as said in President Musharraf speech "Today we are the poorest, the most illiterate, the most backward, the most unhealthy, the most un-enlightened, the most deprived, and the weakest of all the human race," Every act of terrorism is just the death agony of a dieing animal gnawing at its own entrails.
