    A BAGHDAD mother and father, to show their thanks to US President George W. Bush for the overthrow of Saddam Hussein, have named their son after the American leader.

    Had the couple had twin boys, they say, the would have named them George Bush and Tony Blair.

    The new George Bush - probably the only one in Baghdad - was born six weeks ago to Nadia Jergis Mohammed, 34, and her husband Abdul Kader Faris, 41.

    "I tell you all Iraqis hated Saddam's regime. It was only George Bush who liberated us, without him it wouldn't have happened. If he hadn't done it the sons of Saddam would have ruled us for years. He saved us from Saddam and that's why we named our son after him," Mohammed told Associated Press Television News.

    George Bush screamed in his crib.

    Baby Bush, born July 11, carries the full name George Bush Abdul Kader Faris Abed El-Hussein. He weighed 3.5 kilograms at birth.

    Two older brothers are named - more traditionally - Omar and Ali.
