16. It's a serious question, despite your sarcasm.
Blair is a war criminal. I don't like war criminals. I don't understand how anyone can like someone who is a war criminal.

Perhaps the poster sees something bigger about Blair that causes him to like Blair despite his war criminal status. I know AP defends Blair based on a complex analysis I don't happen to agree with but is at least reasoned and explained.

So this is actually a question to learn a different perspective. Sorry if you find it otherwise; that's your problem, not mine.
