The article discusses the significance of the political friendship of U.S. President George W. Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair. The friendship between Bush and Blair is the axis on which the security of the West and ultimately the peace of the world turns. Bush and Blair do not meet more than a dozen times a year, but they talk on the phone four to five times a week. Both leaders recognize that whatever the future may hold, the chief threat currently is international terrorism orchestrated by Muslim extremists.
