When tourism goes down the hotel, entertainment, and airline industries 
suffer.  If enough people boycott the US because of this then it'll keep the

If the US economy stays down long enough then the current government won't 
last.  Rhetoric about imaginary enemies in Iraq doesn't satisfy people who 
lose their jobs because of the economy sucking.
