British Prime Minister Tony Blair took his Middle East peace tour to Iraq, urging support for its fragile government and seeking to draw the violence-wracked country into his vision of a global battle against extremism. Standing in front of a Lynx helicopter in a cavernous hangar on Sunday, Blair told some of the 7,000 British troops serving in southern Iraq they were fighting on behalf of "people of tolerance and moderation" around the world. "This is real conflict, real battle, and it is a different kind of enemy - not fighting a state, but fighting a set of ideas and ideologies, a group of extremists who share the same perspectives," Blair said. "What we need to try to do is build an alliance of moderate people against the extreme."
