    One hundred years from now the Iraqi war might be viewed by historians as the beginning of the end of the American Empire. Similar to the way the Boer war has been viewed as the beginning of the long decline of the British Empire.

    What I find reprehensible about the Bush administration's handling of the economy is that they cut taxes while fighting a war, which led to huge budget deficits. That greater budget flexibility would have come in handy in fighting the economic downturn that is now under way. Even many conservatives rate Bush's handling of the economy as abysmal.
