TheWorldTonight: Bush: 'We must end this oil addiction' IRAQ: Anti-war protesters to stage event in the city centre.

A POLITICALLY weakened President George Bush declared last night that America must break its long dependence on middle eastern oil and rebuked critics of his stay-the-course strategy for the unpopular war in Iraq.

"America is addicted to oil, which is often imported from unstable parts of the world," Bush said as he sought to drive the election-year agenda in his annual State of the Union address.

Rejecting calls for the withdrawal of troops from Iraq, the president said: "There is no peace in retreat."

He also attacked critics, many of whom argue that Bush went to war on the erroneous grounds that Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction.
