Extracts from this document...

Introduction

U.S. troops in iraq A must or something else? When George W. Bush, the president of the United States of America, declarated the war against Iraq, the main reason of war was the self-protection. This simple thing, self-protection is also not simple in this case, the foundament was the so called Bush doctrine, that means, that the USA has the right to protect his security all over the world with a strike on his enemies, before getting the chance to attack America.
