damn. im trying to find you some more resources on this. ive read so much on this its hard to remember where i read certain things. but firebrand is right..pretty much our economy has been on a downward spiral since about the 50's or the 60's...although there are no nations ready to step up and assume power the way the US did when it stopped nurturing the british and keeping them as a dummy leader until 1956 (see: ) our economy will eventually become a victim of its own design and collapse.
but back to the gulf war...yeah..we were headed into a deep recession, but we were able to make money off of gulf war I because it was financed mostly by our allies (see: ) as appossed to this war, which will be payed for completely by the taxpayers.
