The US in 2007 is basically the same as Germany in 1937-38. The Germans and Americans got the government they deserve. The Germans paid the price for AH; Americans will have to pay a similiar price for Bush.

I think you are wrong - the U.S. in 2007 is not the same as Germany in the 30s, since it does not have any adversary capable of making U.S. Americans pay for their arrogance and folly.

A more apt comparison would be the Roman republic shortly before its demise by the hand of Ceasar (complete with a cowardly Senate more concerned with their own welfare than that of the republic, an ignorant public and a professional military loyal only to its "Commander in Chief"). As such, your probably have a couple of centuries before the barbarians teach you what "shock and awe" really means.
