So I wake up this morning, and Putin has dissolved his government.
Then, same morning, Russia announces a bomb with nuclear-level destructive capability. But they say they're not escalating.
Then, later the same day, the US announces they have a matter-antimatter (proton/positron) annihilation laser, which, they say, is to normal lasers as nuclear weapons are to normal bombs.
At the same time, Bush, old "We'll never pull 'em out", is about to announce a troop pullback in Iraq.
Oil's hovering around $80 a barrel. The dollar is in the outhouse, and we've basically had many of our civil rights eliminated or made irrelevant.
Did I miss something here?
