George W. Bush:
The US president will celebrate his 59th birthday on Wednesday, the opening day of the summit. The September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks in the United States have framed Bush`s presidency, prompting him to launch a global `war on terror`. This led him to invade Afghanistan and Iraq, creating divisions between nations. Despite enjoying a triumphant re-election, Bush is beginning to lose favour with his public due to US troops, who are still based in the Middle East.
