Sorry I can't type what British friends have said about Blair (they live here anyway). So only have articles from the BBC to offer.
In standing alongside President Bush, Mr Blair has managed to alienate many traditional Labour supporters who remain deeply suspicious of the world's only remaining superpower, and in particular of the current occupant of the White House.
That distrust is also shared by many in Europe and the prime minister faced the daunting - some say impossible - task of trying to bridge the gap between the views of 'old Europe', led by France and Germany, and the unflinching position of the American administration.
Mr Blair's supporters argued that he was not meekly following the American line, but instead remained true to a position he has held for many years, that if Saddam Hussein would not disarm peacefully then force would have to be used.
In the event, action against Iraq went ahead despite massive Commons rebellions and the resignation of two cabinet ministers - one before the conflict and one afterwards.
Mr Blair, in a widely admired speech to MPs, won the day with his insistence that without military action, Saddam would continue to defy the international community.
But while the war was won, the much-expected "Baghdad bounce" which Downing Street hoped would boost Mr Blair's popularity to new heights failed to materialise.
The weapons programmes in Iraq which the prime minister warned about have, as yet, not been found. There has been disquiet about an alleged lack of planning for post-war Iraq.
Questions have been raised about the intelligence upon which the UK went to war - prompting a bitter and divisive row between the government, and particularly media chief Alastair Campbell, and the BBC.
And the death of Iraq weapons expert Dr David Kelly, who apparently killed himself after giving evidence to MPs investigating the way the case for war was made, looms over the political agenda.
An inquiry into the death of the scientist - who was the source of BBC stories questioning the way the case for war was presented - will dominate the summer months at a time when the Blair administration might otherwise have been celebrating an historic anniversary as the longest-serving Labour government.
The prime minister says his appetite for the job ahead of him - which includes winning the trust of those doubting both the merits of the Iraq war and proving his commitment to public service reform - remains undiminished.
The coming months will test that resolve in the extreme.
Blair chalks up another record
By Nick Assinder

There is little doubt that the prime minister would like to be seen as the New Labour equivalent of Attlee and he has often likened his plans for the NHS to those pioneering moves by the 1945 government.
But, as he marks this point in Labour history, he knows he is facing challenges which could yet spell disaster.
His government is being battered on all sides, not only on foreign policy - particularly the war on Iraq - but also on domestic issues such as foundation hospitals and student finance.
And his own personal popularity is taking a major battering over spin and the issue of trust.
