My husband dragged me to the theater to see Avatar last week. I'm a fan of Sci Fi and the color blue, but this billion-dollar venture failed to entice me, especially after I learned director James Cameron used the movie as a platform to condemn the US's war on terror.
So I was a bit confused when the supposed enlightened beings proceeded to wage a violent battle against the, in this movie, bad guys. As I now understand it, Mr. Cameron believes war is permissible when striving to protect innocents and territory from intruders who seek to anniliate life, property, and the freedom to worship.
A tragic reality, but as the movie shows, one that is often necessary.
