Iraq, Afghanistan, and the middle east battle zone is the testing ground for the new world, coming to a metropolitan 1st-world city near you.
I don't think I have to connect all the dots for this forum's highly insightful audience, but let me just submit two data points for initial consideration.... than I think you'll be able to pull the rest together on your own.
First, Win Wenders 1997 movie, "The End of Violence". Here's a featurette, but I strongly urge watching the entire movie... I believe you can find it on Amazon Instant Viewing.
Second, I submit the now-revealed notion that the Preditor Drone was designed for domestic surveillence.
Everyone will soon be just a button push away from instant extermination, at least in the metro regions. Does the purpose of Iraq make more sense now?
