Protests in US, Europe as Bush Defends Iraq War

LONDON/NEW YORK (Reuters) - Thousands of protesters against the war on Iraq marched in Europe and the United States on Saturday, but President Bush said the invasion just two years ago shielded the world from "grave danger."

"George Bush ... Uncle Sam. Iraq will be your Vietnam," chanted 45,000 protesters winding through central London as they put down a black cardboard coffin with the slogan "100,000 dead" scrawled on the lid outside the U.S. Embassy.

The protesters, marking the second anniversary of the invasion that toppled Saddam Hussein, called on Bush and his ally, British Prime Minister Tony Blair, to pull their troops out of Iraq and restore sovereignty to its people.

Some 10,000 people marched through the center of Rome, waving anti-war banners and protesting against the Italian troop presence in Iraq. Protesters also marched in Madrid and Barcelona.
