He earned the epithet Tory B Liar when in office. He's earned a lot more since. …
When he sent our unarmed and badly supported troops into Iraq and Afghanistan it WAS for the oil. Korea was offering bribes toi the dirty rat:

Tony Blair has received cash from a South Korean oil firm in a deal kept secret until the business appointments watchdog intervened.
After 20 months of secrecy, the former prime minister has now been overruled by the chairman of the advisory committee on business appointments, the former Tory cabinet minister Ian Lang.
[Sneaky, dirty ****!]
Lang this week ordered publication of Blair's deal with UI Energy Corporation, which has extensive oil interests in the US and in Iraq.
Blair repeatedly claimed to the committee, which assesses jobs taken up by former ministers, that the existence of the deal had to be kept secret at the request of the South Koreans, because of "market sensitivities".
Committee sources said they had to "chase" Blair. Blair's office responded last month, claiming the deal was still too sensitive to reveal.
Lang told Blair he saw no reason to keep the deal secret any longer.
The committee website now publishes a statement identifying Blair's job as "advice to a consortium of investors led by the UI Energy Corporation (Publication delayed due to market sensitivities)".
Also unpublished, a Blair deal with the ruling family in Kuwait. He has been in their pay since December 2007 at a reported £1,000.000. fee.
Blair gave a one-off piece of advice for UI Energy in August 2008.
Blair, who set up a commercial consultancy firm, Tony Blair Associates, following the Korea and Kuwait deals, has been secretive in the past about his money-making schemes put his multimillion-pound income through an obscure partnership structure called Windrush Ventures, which enabled him to avoid publishing normal company accounts.
Today a widow received a medal on behalf of her dead soldier husband for his removing by hand, a couple of booby traps. Some get gold and some get brass. And the rich get rich and put out to grass. They get fat on feeding lies to troops who get medals and no more blue skies.
A posthumous award to Lieutenant Colonel Rupert Thorneloe, 39, Commanding Officer of the 1st Welsh Guards, who was killed by a roadside bomb in Lashkar Gah in July.
S/Sgt Hughes was awarded his medal after clearing a safe path for his comrades through an “IED minefield” in August in which he disarmed seven bombs – three of them by hand, without any protective clothing, while under enemy fire.
Not enough money nor time to plan the invasion because of its illegality this lead to thousands of dead all over Iraq and no end for millenia as the fall-out from radio active weapons of mass destruction will operate uncleansed unless god brings an end to Armageddon.
A rat and a chimpanzee did this.
