Letter: Bomber Blair

CONGRATULATIONS ON being alone in the media to see through the photo-op soundbite reality of the "surprise" Blair visit to Kosovo ("See the conquering hero arrive - or perhaps not", 1 August). What could be better, after the Cabinet reshuffle fiasco and a proposed holiday in the Italian sunshine, than an elaborate press call in Kosovo with dozens of children laid on as extras?

UN refugee staff may be thanked without qualification for the human suffering they managed to alleviate. But while Serbian farmers are murdered by those whose cause Tony Blair championed and killed for, it is still to be determined whether the policy of "we will bomb and bomb and bomb again" achieved anything of value.
