Intelligence community: "Titanic, meet iceberg."Submitted by FacePalm on Wed, 09/10/2008 - 17:59
A ship as big as the United States doesn't turn on a dime. And the calls of "Iceberg, dead ahead!!" have reached the command deck much too late to avoid the impact.
Try to read past the headline, there's a lot more interesting information in there than just a decline in the "sphere of influence".
