    Yes. While we were fixated on fear mongering nonsense we lost the manufacturing and distribution war.

    The winners are not trying to solve all of the worlds problems. They are focused ...we are still distracted.

    Does buying allies and losing the manufacturering base and borrowing money to pay the bribes seem like a win?

    I suppose it all depends on what you were hoping to achieve.
    There is always the Law of Unintended Consequences though.

    Let's hope not! I found this on Yahoo Answers in answer to the question "Why did the Russians lose the Cold War?":

    Why did the Russians lose the Cold War? - Yahoo! Answers

    Very interesting read.

    Now I must return to my Chinese and Spanish language lessons!
