How a superpower declines

J. Matthew about the war on Iraq:

the war against/in/upon [who knows exactly what preposition is appropriate anymore?] Iraq has deteriorated America’s military ability to defend itself from actual threats, withered its recruiting ability to replenish military ranks — without a draft, that is– and sapped its financial ability to fund the continuing fiasco while maintaining its domestic commitments to the welfare of the American people. This is how superpowers decline.
