  • ASM # 536

    In a shocker that NOBODY saw coming, JMS' written Spider-Man #536 attacks the prison that couldn't have been closer to being Gitmo without being NAMED Gitmo.

    "IÆve seen the very concept of justice destroyed, IÆve seen heroes and bad guys alike ù dangerous guys, no mistake, but still born in this country for the most part, denied due process, and imprisoned, potentially for the rest of their lives. à But thereÆs a point where the ends donÆt justify the means, if the means require us to give up not just our identities, but who and what we are as a country.ö

    Yeah, even-handedness! Who saw this ending up as a podium to attack the War on Terror? I mean, really, who saw this coming?

    Quick Q mike
    What does this have to do with the Bullet Points storyline?
    on the "not getting the context to thread here, or perhaps confused" ID
    "There are no good wars. War is always the worst possible way to resolve differences. It degenerates and corrupts both sides to ever more sordid levels of existence, in their need to gain an advantage over the enemy. Those actively involved in combat are almost always damaged goods for the rest of their lives. If their bodies don't bear scars, their minds do, ofttimes both. Many have said it before, but it can't be said to enough, war is hell. "

      It's not so I gave it it's own thread.

        As I told LIM elsewhere, Civil War Frontline is so ridiculously over-the-top heavy-handed that it's unbelievable. Nothing but one huge criticism of the Patriot Act and Gitmo, without ANY of the fairness that Joe Quesada, JMS, etc., promised us that we'd be seeing with the Civil War storyline.

        I said back then that was just bullshit we were being fed and I was right.

        Meanwhile, I'll still continue to enjoy Planet Hulk and Annihilation, both of which are remarkably more entertaining than any of this Civil War nonsense.
