The game of decimation started with reagan. They won. What did they win?
Seriously.

World domination? They can't even conquer a petty third world country once ran by a tyrrant they called "friend".

Hell, they can't even keep the populace that elected them in content! Which is a bit of a shame; the only way to win such a game IS to keep the people happy until after you've won. Not before. But that's what patriot acts and days are for...

So, meanwhile, the US has lost cred in the eyes of the world. We continue to look even more wasteful. Actions are showing that people and countries are ditching the dollar. I'm amazed only S Korea has ditched the dollar. And you know more are going to follow suit. And when a real piece of vermin like Bill Gates ditches the dollar in favor of the Euro, you know something big is about to happen.

Things are on a serious decline. You lot didn't expect that, now did you?

So, what have our winners really won?

Seems like you've won nothing to me.

We praise you, neocons. You have won the game. I concede. I may have been king of my little privade idaho for my mere 13 years as an adult.

But you lot are kings. Have been for 25 years. And kings for a long time to come.

But kings of what?

Kings of NOTHING. And, again, for a very long time to come... until you've had enough and opted to press "the button" out of abject depression. No wonder * looks so dismal as he does in every photo op; either looking angry or looking very physically ill. THAT is what you have won: Despair and illness. Why isn't * jubilant and gleeful? What is happening is what he and you want.

You won. So get used to it.

I don't know if William Kristol, chairman of the Project for a New American Century, won anything.

3. In the short term.
In the long term, they'll be as crispy and radioactive as the rest of us.

Karma. And the world does have eyes.
