Tony Blair: America's Role In World Not To Be 'Loved,' 'It Is To Be Strong'

Tony Blair: “Well, i think you know, If i can say one thing about America and the way it’s viewed in this part of the world. I’ve just come back from my 88th visit to the middle east since leaving office. If i were you in America, I would not worry about being loved. That’s not your role in the world, right? Your role is to be strong and you are strong. What you have to understand in these circumstances there’s two groups struggling for what’s going on in the world. You have anti-american protesters burning the flag, saying terrible things and killing American people and you also have in Libya, for example, after the tragic death of your ambassador there, thousands of people coming out protesting against the killers and demanding action taken against them so, you know, in the end, you’ve got to see this as a long struggle in which we’ve got to be on the side of the decent people, and there are decent people out there.”
