Tony Blair identifies new enemy greater than Russia and China

The West have long proclaimed Russia and China as global enemy number one. But former UK Prime Minister, Tony Blair has revealed that the threat posed by radical Islam is “first order” and one that it is “getting worse”.


He revealed this recently in a speech to the Royal United Services Institute military think tank, adding that, it would be ‘unwise’ to downgrade the threat posed by such groups.

He has even called on former number global dangers like China and Russia to join other world leaders for a united front against fundamental Islam in the world.

“In my view, Islamism, both the ideology and the violence, is a first order security threat; and, unchecked, it will come to us, even if centred far from us, as 9/11 demonstrated,” he said. “This is a global challenge and one that is getting worse,” Blair said

Mr Blair said governments should prepare for the prospect of bio-terrorism by “non-state actors” and would be “unwise” to downgrade the threat posed by such groups.

“We should decide it as a matter of strategy, we shouldn’t blunder into it, because it’s a big decision. It means you reposition a lot of your analysis of the world.

“My view is that you can’t be sure, but it would be unwise to delegate it to a second order threat. I don’t see it diminishing.”
