Blair Afraid that Bush Would "Nuke the Sh*t" out of Afghanistan

The former British ambassador to the United States has been quoted as saying

"Blair's real concern was that there would be quote unquote 'a knee-jerk reaction' by the Americans ... they would go thundering off and nuke the shit out of the place without thinking straight," Mr Meyer reportedly told the documentary, according to the Mirror. LINK

Is this really true or revisionist history meant to try and salvage some of Blair's reputation? It's the old "It would have been worse if we hadn't gone along" justification. Pretty pathetic. I think its pretty clear to everyone thats been paying attention that Blair was eager and willing to go along with Bush's imperialistic actions whether in Afghanistan or Iraq.
