Gone like a dream in the night

The title of this entry could be the title of one of Maligna's poems. So, what do you say Mal, ready for another challenge?
You are betrayed. You fought for something you did not get. And the glory of the armies and navies of the United States is gone like a dream in the night, and there ensues upon it, in the suitable darkness of the night, the nightmare of dread which lay upon the nations before this war came; and there will come some time, in the vengeful Providence of God, another war in which not a few hundred thousand men from America will have to die, but as many millions as necessary to accomplish the final freedom of the people's of the world.

-Woodrow Wilson
A prediction after World War I, as recited by Robert McMcNamara in The Fog of War: Eleven Lessons from the Life of Robert S. McNamara
