The article focuses on strategies adopted by U.S. President George W. Bush and Great Britain's Prime Minister Tony Blair regarding their war against Iraq. The idea of democracy President Prime Minister Blair were so keen to bestow upon the Iraqi people was something they had largely ignored at home, particularly in the Great Britain where more than a million people took the streets to protest against any military action. Now, the reconstruction of Iraq has officially begun, after the days of anarchy and mayhem that followed the fall of Saddam Hussein's despotic regime when looters, from all sections of society, lay waste to all before them. The country's national museum, which contained thousands of objects, some dating back tens of thousands of years was decimated, its unique, antique treasures carried away in blankets and on ramshackled bicycles. The lives of hundreds of thousands of Iraqis are in tatters. They are without homes, food and water, electricity and,in some cases, without hope.
