Once upon a time, our heroic boys in uniform did their murder with psychopaths like George Custer raiding Indian villages at dawn on horseback at the head of scared shitless cavalrymen and cutting down women and children in the good old up close and personal way with sabers and carbines. Just a few years back, we had advanced to slaughtering equally defenseless Arabs at slightly safer range with helicopter gunships doing the killing. Now at last, our current generation of war heroes can do their dirt sitting comfortably at computer consoles with cans of Diet Pepsi at hand to ease their hard and heroic work. I understand that these John Wayne types don't even get to see the terrified faces of the human beings being murdered. So much easier. So much less stress. So much less danger of nasty side effects like PTSD.
Be proud to be an American if you are one... An exceptional nation beloved of a Christian God who is, of course, smiling at the righteousness of His servants.
I do applaud you for using the "War on Terror" in quotes, and may the stalemate you speak of continue as the bombs fall at the hands of a president that won the Nobel Peace Prize; a prize which has essentially become a requirement for being vetted by the corporate oligarchy.
For the record, regardless of the intention of your work, it lends itself to being interpreted a number of different ways by the viewer. I see this piece more from a dualistic standpoint and so from my perspective, I find it to be an insightful and progressive work. So while we might differ on the nature of the content being expressed, the fact that it provokes meaningful discussion makes it the powerful piece that it is.
