In January 2003 I was so outraged that the US and UK were threatening to invade Iraq that I went to Baghdad with Margarita Papandreou, first lady of Greece, and other first ladies from the region. see Baghdad Diaries We met with most of Saddam Hussain’s ministers and put together a 10 point plan for avoiding war; it was handed to Tony Blair at the end of January 2003. He said “It’s too late” and, in spite of massive public protests, two months later we were at war.
