...And in the darkness bind them

Two evil empires. Two leaders seeking world domination through political manipulation, deprivation of human rights, warfare, and the suspension of civil liberties. Sauron had The Nine. George has Halliburton. Orcs. Blackwater Security. Gollum. Dick Cheney.

In both stories, the bodies pile up like cordwood.

The demise of one ended The Third Age. The demise of the other will end The Second Error.
