Gere Lambasts Bush's Iraq Invasion

RICHARD GERE has blasted American PRESIDENT GEORGE BUSH's ostensibly faith-based war in Iraq - calling into question the leader's claim he has "God on his side".

The CHICAGO actor criticised Bush's declaration that he's placed America on God's side by invading Iraq at a gala held in his honour by the AMERICAN MUSEUM OF THE MOVING IMAGE last week (ends23APR04).

The DALAI LAMA disciple told the audience, which included DENZEL WASHINGTON and TIM ROBBINS, "One thing I've learned is never to trust anyone who thinks that he exclusively has God on his side.

"Especially when he's the President of the United States."
