Bono believes Blair had no choice but to join Bush’s War on Terror

The U2 frontman thinks that Blair had to send British forces to Afghanistan and Iraq in order to avoid being called another Neville Chamberlain, who overlooked the threat of Adolf Hitler.

He said that Blair decided in favour of a raid against Al Qaeda and Iraqi groups because he wanted to save the world from the terrorists.

“I think people as reasoned as Tony Blair looked at the world and didn’t want to be Neville Chamberlain, who came back from meeting with Hitler with a piece of paper saying `Peace in our time,’ while Hitler was planning to cross the channel from France,” Contactmusic quoted Bono as saying.

In the meantime Bono has been honoured with an award for his humanitarian work at an AIDS charity fundraiser in New York. (ANI)
