London, Nov 27 (PTI) Tony Blair and George W Bush had signed a "secret deal" to topple Saddam Hussein a year before the US and Britain invaded Iraq, a former high-ranking British diplomat has revealed.

According to Sir Christopher Meyer, UK's Ambassador to the US in the run-up to the Iraq War, an agreement to aim for "regime change" was reached between the then British Premier and President Bush during a private meeting at the latter's Crawford ranch in April 2002 in the absence of their advisers.

"To this day I am not entirely clear what degree of convergence was, if you like, signed in blood at the Crawford ranch. They weren't there to talk about containment or even strengthening sanctions," 'The Times' quoted him as saying.

This is no suprise a similar deal may have been struck when Nawaz Shariff lost power in Pakistan and Musharraf came to power and the war on terror started shortly afterwards. This may all be coincidence but regime change is an agenda pushed for decades from Cuba with Castro and Ahmedinajad in Iran.
