Iarhen has just left Hobbiton.

Lindil, I have a question. If Sauron grew weaker over the years, for all the power he placed forth on the Ring, and on his servants, was he weak enough to face a direct encounter with the greatest powers of good in M.E.?

Such as Gandalf, Galadriel, etc.

Because, other than the power of his all-seeing Eye and of the manipulations he showed in FOTR, TTT and ROTK, he had no other power... In a direct confrontation, maybe he was not able to bear such a struggle...

Such as the struggles that Gandalf so successfully fought. Such as Galadriel's struggle keeping the forces of Dol Guldur out of Lothlorien.
"In place of a Dark Lord you will have a Queen! Not dark but beatiful and terrible as the Dawn! Treacherous as the sea! Stronger than the foundations of the Earth! All shall love me and despair!"
--- Galadriel when tempted by the One Ring.
