Outspoken rocker Mark E Smith has blasted British Prime Minister Tony Blair for sending teenagers off to die in Iraq.

The Fall frontman is scathing of the politician because he feels he's behaving like German Nazi leader Adolf Hitler.

Smith fumes, "I personally think that Blair is a National Socialist, and a National Socialist to me means Nazism.

"He's done everything that f**king Hitler did... Sending trained soldiers to drive guns up to the American depots in open f**king daylight with people throwing bombs at them? That's murder that. That's the sort of thing Hitler used to do.

"I'm sorry, they're trained to fight, they're not f**king cabbies (taxi drivers)."
