 "I didn't think about it much when I was doing the writing but in retrospect I can see it," he said. "It shows us that the US should not act unilaterally. Had we acted unilaterally ["we" being the U.S., during the Revolutionary War.] and not gone out recruiting - through the efforts of Benjamin Franklin and others - a relationship with the French, we would not have prevailed. The British would have defeated us." Is that a lesson for today? "I think so. Most wars, [though] certainly not all, could have been avoided.

"There was no reason for us to become involved in Iraq last year. That was a war based on lies and misinterpretations from London and Washington, claiming falsely that Saddam Hussein was responsible for 9/11, claiming falsely that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction.

"President Bush and Prime Minister Blair probably knew that many of the allegations were based on uncertain intelligence and a decision was made to go to war [and then people said] 'lets find a reason to do so'.

"Bush Jnr was inclined to finish a war ... that his father had precipitated against Iraq. And his coterie of influential advisers, including [Vice-President Dick] Cheney and [Defense Secretary Donald] Rumsfeld and [National Security Adviser] Condoleezza Rice and [Pentagon Adviser] Richard Perle and [Deputy Defense Secretary Paul] Wolfowitz and others had long ago expressed publicly through their writings and statements a belief that we should overthrow Saddam's regime.

"That commitment of Bush prevailed over the better judgement of Tony Blair, [who] became an enthusiastic supporter of the Bush policy."

Jimmy Carter (scroll down a few paragraphs). Man, this guy is cool.
