The war in Iraq brings up a lot of questions, about the future decisions of President of the United States of America, Mr. George W. Bush. After the terrorist attack on the United States, which shook the whole world, US went to war with Iraq. I believe that this is a war on terrorism, and not an "Oil War", how other like to refer to it. United States want to liberate people in Iraq and bring up the standards of living in that very rich, but at the same time poor country.

Before I come to my main topic of this essay, which is "Which Prince should G.W. Bush put in the Middle East?"

But as timed passes United States saw that the best way to bring new allies is by putting democratic government. Which is United States did in Germany and Japan. But while US were busy with Europe and did not paid attention to the Middle East, Islamic countries were out of control. So now G.W.Bush would like to solve this problem, which brings another problem who is going to be the President in Iraq, if Iraq is going to be a democratic country.

You probably ask me why? Of course I can tell! His own people killed him. The "presidents" or princes whom Socrates wanted to rule and how they should behave were a little soft. Soft as: too kind, do everything for everybody, not mean, not a good warrior. Not a good warrior is my opinion. All this brings me to one thought how would this work out in Iraq. There is no way for this kind of president to rule a country like Iraq.
