14. Whatever his motivation, it was the right thing to do.

Tony Blair supported the invasion of Iraq for - probably - noble motives. That doesn't mean he was right to do so, and it didn't stop people blaming him for it. The flip side of that is that we should give Bush credit for doing the right thing, even if for the wrong reasons.
