I went to see Captain Marvel last night, and of course absolutely loved it (I’m a huge Marvel film fan). However, the part that really got to me was the plot twist about the Kree-Skrull war (obviously, spoilers from here on in).
From the beginning of the film, we are taught, just like Carol Danvers/Vers, that the Kree are the good guys and the Skrulls are the bad guys. The Kree have been attempting for years to win in their fight against the Skrulls. The Skrulls are made out to be terrorists who kill not only Kree, but innocent bystanders as well.

There’s no way in the world that I support the American and Canadian military today – going off to the Middle East, causing unrest, and stealing oil. I’m against radical Islam terrorism, but I also believe that the American military sent off to Islamic countries also causes the problem in the first place.
But I’ve also always been very interested in war and its consequences ever since I was a young girl reading books about World War II (now, the veterans of that war I can praise). I remember how much the old Jason Aldean music video for “Tattoos on this Town” touched me back when it was still on YouTube – a song about making memories together comes to a climax in which the young wife learns that her soldier husband is dead. I can’t help but feel a throb in my heart on November 11th and every single time I see John McRae’s “In Flander’s Fields.”
That’s why I was so intrigued to see Milo Yiannopoulos’ post about Brad Paisley’s newest song, “Love and War.” (Well, new to me… the album was released in April.)
I don’t know much about how war veterans are treated, although I have heard about unfair treatment (although in generalities more than anything). I have to say – even if a young man has misguided ideas about what he fights for, I think he should be rewarded for having the guts to go to the front lines. Nowadays, our men all seem to be beta cucks who are insecure about their masculinity. Usually, these kind of things make me laugh, but at some point, it’s just really depressing.
Does anyone know more about how veterans are treated? I’d love to hear more from someone who is a little more informed.
In other words, on a more superficial, I think Brad Paisley’s new album sounds A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. Definitely getting this one.
