    Arrow to tire of attempt to game Americans

    Kindly explain the meaning of phrases in bold in the followng paragraph: " With word out in the US media that the Bush Administration has begun to tire of General Musharraf's constant attempt to game the Americans and the increasingly high pitched bipartisan clamour on Capitol Hill for Washington to turn the screws on Islamabad for not deliverig on its promise to crack down on the neo-Taliban and the Al Qaeda leadership."

    Re: to tire of attempt to game Americans

    Your sentence is not a complete sentence.
    .
    to tire of -- This basically means 'to lose patience with' in this context.
    .
    to game the Americans -- I'd interpret this to mean 'play games with or not be serious with the Americans'.
