Europe Gives Bush a Cool Good-bye

Public reception to the last European tour of Bush's presidency was less than warm in the UK earlier this week.

Among these agreements: the pledging of 230 new UK troops to the cause in Afghanistan, bringing UK troop levels to their highest ever, at just over 8,000.

While Bush admitted during an interview with Fox News sister station Sky TV that his "dead or alive" statement in regards to Bin Laden "sent the wrong signal", he maintains that Saddam Hussein's deposition and subsequent execution was an indisputable victory in the war against terror.

Bush also asserts that the people of Iraq and Afghanistan "appreciate" how tough he and PM Brown are on terror. is an independent news network that produces stories of global interest.
