The Tone is too harsh
I agree with everything the author writes, and then some. It's infuriating, what this country's become. The author's self-righteous tone will appeal mostly to the convinced. In his telling, the US is always bad, bad, and has never done anything on the world stage that's the slightest bit altruistic. While this is mostly true, and while the author has his facts perfectly in line (the account of the US soldiers guarding the Iraqi Oil Ministry while allowing Iraq's irreplaceable historical tresures fall to looting - is especially harrowing), I would probably look elsewhere if you are giving this to someone who already thinks liberals can't stop the reflexive America-bashing.

Wow... If We Only Would Learn From History!
I thought that this was a fascinating book that really laid out a real possibility of the path that our country is on if we don't start taking measures to do and be better.
I study and appreciate history and can clearly see how the US is is headed for serious changes if we aren't careful.
