United States President George W Bush has declared an end to Western rifts over Iraq but has won little in his search for European military help in
"The bitter differences of the war are over," Mr Bush said.
However, Mr Bush encountered strong anti-American criticism during the US-EU summit in Ireland, with protests delaying a final press conference.
Fenced off from his detractors by 2,000 soldiers and 4,000 police - a third of the Irish security forces - Mr Bush met European Union leaders in a
western Irish castle.
