Today I Realized That We're Just Screwed

I was reading the letter that the President of Iran wrote to the President of the United States. (At least, according to WorldNet Daily).

Let me just say that the whole gist of the letter is that the world was wrong, wrong, wrong to create Israel, and that trying for the whole secular government thing is obviously a failed experiment. While he doesn't come right out and say "God will punish you for this", he may as well. And you know what my first thought on that is? "Good luck when you figure out that whole "proof of God's existence" thing, kid".

But still, the letter that reads for the most part as someone waving their religion around while probably spitting too much, and doing so while they're close enough to your face to really bother you, contains this:
Mr. President, history tells us that repressive and cruel governments do not survive. God has entrusted the fate of man to them. The Almighty has not left the universe and humanity to their own devices. Many things have happened contrary to the wishes and plans of governments. These tell us that there is a higher power at work and all events are determined by Him.
No, no, I still don't buy into the higher power taking a direct role in the day-to-day business of the earth thing, but the part about cruel governments I can get behind without a problem.

Our own government is doing enough cruel things that everyone else on the planet has noticed, and we, the populace of the United States, re-elected these people. It was when this that I realized once again, we're just screwed.
