Protesters get violent
Italian cities were paralyzed by tens of thousands of protesters blocking train stations and highways. London police hauled away demonstrators, including many school children. Protesters stopped traffic in Melbourne, Australia.
Protests turned violent in Egypt, Britain, Spain, India, Belgium, Switzerland, the Philippines and Lebanon.
In Cairo, the Arab world's biggest city, riot police used water cannons and batons to beat back thousands of rock-throwing protesters who tried to storm the U.S. embassy.
Greek cities were filled with demonstrators. "We cannot accept the cowboy stance of the supposed planet lord," Athens teacher Christos Gotzias said of Bush.
Kuwait was one Arab country where citizens were supportive of Washington. When Bush appeared on a TV screen in a local coffee shop to announce the war had begun, a burst of applause filled the room.
"Bush is a real man," Ahmad Hussein Ahmad said. "His dad liberated Kuwait and now the son will liberate Iraq."
