Presidents and Key Leaders
Tony Blair was a key leader of the decade because of his support towards us during the war on terror. He was the prime minister of Great Britain at the time and supported the United States in the wars against Afghanistan and Iraq. Because of his support towards the two wars he was criticized by his country. Another key leader of the 2000's was Jean Chretien. Jean Chretien was the prime minister of Canada. He also supported us in the war against Afghanistan. He even sent troops to assist the United States. However, he did not support us in the war against Iraq because he did not see the connection between Iraq and 9/11. Like Tony Blair, Jean Chretien was criticized by his country because of his choice to support us in the war.
