Bush Blinked 37 Times -- With A Lick Of The Lips, Three Weight Shifts And Serious Foot Jiggling...

George W. Bush's suicidal statecraft
Sixty years ago, Arnold Toynbee concluded, in his monumental "A Study of History," that the ultimate cause of imperial collapse was "suicidal statecraft." Sadly for President George W.

The president's supporters have always portrayed Iraq as a simple choice between two extremes: Either support the war in Iraq and the fight against terrorism, or oppose it and coddle the terrorists. But increasingly, voters are raising questions about whether Iraq has made the United States safer, drawing added attention to the spiraling costs -- both financial and human -- of the occupation.
