Cambridge, Mass.-Sept. 15, 2010:

A vociferous and spirited group of anti-war protesters greeted war criminal Tony Blair on his stop in Cambridge, promoting his new book. He spoke at the First Parish Unitarian Church with magazine editor Tina Brown as the moderator.
Protesters shouted "war criminal Tony Blair" as a crowd a block long waited to enter to hear Blair.A member of Veterans for Peace read out loud the names of the hundreds of UK troops killed in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Every city Blair has appeared on his book tour has confronted him with protests. In Dublin, Ireland, people threw eggs and shoes at him--in London, Bllair had to cancel his book store appearance out of fear of protesters.
Blair was the British yes man for Bush's wars on Iraq and Afghanistan. Hundreds of British troops were killed in those wars.
Blair exited out a side door after his appearance, only to be confronted by protesters shouts of "War criminal Tony Blair"--he hurried away in a black SUV siurrounded by secret service and police.
