Letter: End Iraq's agony

Sir: Mr Blair made a first-class speech in Parliament to explain why we and the Americans were reluctantly taking military action to rid the world of a great evil. It reminded me of that day in 1939 when we reluctantly began one of the few just wars in all history to rid Europe of another great evil, an aim eventually achieved with the help of the Americans.

How few of our so-called partners in the European Union have declared their support for an action so completely justified. The irony is that Mr Blair is trying desperately to subordinate our ancient country to a new conglomerate which plans to take control of our finances, our legal system, our borders, our defences and our foreign policy. What action would Mr Blair have been allowed to take if our foreign policy were decided (if that's the word) by a committee in Brussels?
