US President George Bush arrived in London on Sunday afternoon for his two-day visits in Britain as the last leg of his final tour of Europe before leaving office in January.
Just before Bush kicked of his good-bye European tour, it was widely expected that Bush would not make substantive achievements since Europe was already coping with the aftermath of his presidency, and turning their eyes on his successor.
However, the US-British special relationship did witness some highlights as Bush secured Brown's backing for Iraq, Afghanistan and Iran in his last leg of his farewell trip to Europe.
Bush,Brown united in Iraq
It seemed that Bush had been obsessed with Iraq war during his final European journey. But some European countries have distanced themselves from the US by declaring pulling their troops out of Iraq. And it is also reported that Britain was considering to withdraw all its troops from Iraq by the end of this year.
In advance of Bush's arrival, Bush delivered a clear message to British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, asking him not to announce a timetable for a British withdrawal form Iraq.
