Blair's Long War Vision

From Draconian Observations comes Blair's Long War Vision. You should read DO's post and brief commentary (clipped below) on Blair's talk in LA a short while back.

Tony Blair's speech to the World Affairs Council in LA is highly interesting. The speech lays out a plan of change in doctrine for the war on terrorism: one that is already present, but need support, in the shape of the Long War concept, and the NSPD 44 and the DoD Directive 3000 (more on the Long War here; and the directives here). As such it fuses the American ambitiousness with the European critiques. Finally, it seems to address and contain Tony Corn's analysis of the GWOT/Long War

I'd be interested in how Dan at tdaxp  would read Blair's speech.
