|Rebel soldiers visit carnage on a small town.|
If things have been calm for a long time, or the war has been far away, it is understandable that people would not be too concerned. But this level of unpreparedness smacks of willfully ignoring the warning signs of impending doom. It could be that these towns are in such desperate circumstances that they cannot afford to make any investments in defense. But they have buildings and streets and electricity. They are not that desperate. I suspect either government propaganda or incompetence, or perhaps a great deal of both.
The movie ends with our hero (one of the murderous child soldiers) in a UN (United Nations) sponsored camp on the beach, playing with other children. A fairly tale ending if there ever was one. It is especially reprehensible since the UN seems to be a great advocate of disarming people so they can be slaughtered by their enemies.
