Especially when THIS crap is happening:<br>========================================<br>After 9/11, Marvel Comics published "4/11,", an anthology series telling stories about world war, politics and terrorism with a slant towards fixing problems, finding new solutions and making the world a better place. Mark Millar and Frank Quitely's short story about Irish sectarianism was a highlight. <br><br>Marvel's upcoming book is "Combat Zone: True Tales from GI's in Iraq." Not only has this book been at Marvel for a while, but a number of artists have been approached, started on the book and then left when it's true nature was revealed. <br><br>While a number of Marvel's previous titles involving war and terrorism have tried to explore issues from different perspectives, reports I've had are that this is not the case here. <br><br>Why? The themes: America is the One True Hope, all who oppose her or disagree with her current thinking are evil scum, and the world would be better off without them. And thank the Lord we have these plucky brave soldiers to do her bidding. <br><br>The resume of Karl Zinsmeister, credited as the "embedded correspondent" writing this with Ron Marz, makes for interesting reading. <br><br>He's editor-in-chief of the American Enterprise Magazine, the in-house magazine of "The American Enterprise Institute" (AEI). The AEI is a neo-conservative think tank, with strong ties to the oil industry and the White House, and one of the most important architects of President Bush's current foreign policy. Famous members include Richard Perle, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, ExxonMobile's CEO Lee Raymond and the Vice-President's wife Lynne Cheney. <br><br>Also, the AEI gave office space to the "Project for a New American Century," an even more conservative think tank with Vice President Dick Cheney and Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz on it's roster. Furthermore, the PNAC and the AEI work closely together. <br><br>Who better to write a touching, poignant and truthful version of the current state of affairs in Iraq?<br><br>===========================<br><br>Thank God my grandparents aren't alive to see this happening.<br><br>
