May I add a few words to those who would advise Mr Blair to be cautious in lending weight to the words of George W Bush? In particular his asking for Osama bin Laden "dead or alive".
If Bin Laden is behind the terrible atrocitys in America he will be of no use in the fight against, or the understanding of, terrorism lying on a mortuary slab. He must be caught alive and interrogated for the rest of his life to discourage others.
Another thing to avoid is a gung-ho foray by forces into Afghanistan. It has not worked before, and has little chance of beign successful again. Our forces should not be considered expendable, however just the cause.
Mr Blair must also consider that we stand on the brink of another oil crisis. Should supplies run low then America will want and take all that is available.
It has been proved in the past that the so-called "specialrelationship" does not guarantee us anything.

So it has taken the death of several thousand Americans to make us hypocrites in the Western world suddenly discover humanity and compassion.
However, this sudden conversion has come too late for the million Palestinians and one and a half million Iraqis - including thousands of children - who have lost their lives.
Now that George W Bush, the American President, has declared that he is leading his country into war, we can but hope that he makes a better job of it that his father did when he was President at the time of the Gulf War.
One may remember that he called a halt to the forces' activities when they were within a day of entering Baghdad and eliminationg Saddam Hussein, thereby creating a running sore which exists to this day and may have had some bearing on the recent terrible happenings in America.
Our Prime Minister at the time was unfortunately too weak to insist that the action be continued.
