Relatives of British soldiers killed in Iraq have asked Prime Minister Tony Blair not to attend a memorial service honoring their loved ones. One called Blair a "war criminal."

"I think he's a war criminal, it's as simple as that. The man, without any consideration to the Labour parliamentary party, elected to go to war with this scabby little friend in Texas [President Bush], and killed 51 of our men unnecessarily," he said. "If I have a chance to meet him on Friday, I will tell him to his face.

That is definitely the money quote.
