The collapse of the dollar will lead to a worldwide scramble for the resource of most value, oil. There will be wars over oil-rich territories (Iraq has been only the first). Bush and his gang are likely to get their Armageddon after all.

Remember, this all started the day (Dec. 12th, 2000) the U.S. Supreme Court handed the keys of the White House to that band of rich thugs. This timeline summarizes what likely jumpstarted the inevitable collapse of 21st century civilization.

But, we're all responsible in the long run. We even re-elected him four years later. We sooooo deserve what we asked for.

I hope you enjoyed the ride, because the tires have come off and there's no spare.
