ABSTRACT
The article discusses the stand taken by U.S. President George W. Bush and Democrat Senator John Kerry on the Iraq war as the anniversary of the Iraq invasion nears. Kerry, the Vietnam war hero, says military power alone can't win the war on terrorism. Bush, the war President, says Kerry promises bold action but only if no other government disagrees. According to Bush, a leader must never care more about being liked than about being right.
