As far as I get it, it means that higher powers (called "Gods" here, but might as well be "fortune" or alike) follow a certain strategy to "destroy" someone. They don't oppress that person, but give them power and might so he/she can ease into it. When that's been done to a certain extent, read: when he/she has started to use those powers in an incorrect way, the higher powers take away all the powers and joyfully watch the person's demise.
As for Galaxy 5's examples, here's my € 0,02:
Saddam - partly agreed, he's not yet dead (or is he?), so he's not yet "destroyed"
Stalin - If he had been murdered, condemned and cursed by his own people, I could agree with that example. But millions of Russians were desperate when he died, and "destruction" took place mainly in western public.
Hitler - direct hit
Blair - agreed, he's definitely not a good example; he's got no powers but authorities
Walk together, talk together all ye peoples of the earth. Then, and only then, shall ye have peace.

All it is saying before GOD brings a person down, he gives them power. In the US, we do that all the time. We will take a person and make them the greatest thing since sliced bread. After a bit, we rip them down like no ones business.
