Abstract

It is impossible to overestimate the role of the US military in domestic politics, its effect on the present precarious state of the economiy, and ultimately its influence on mainstream media’s portrayal of the military in feature films, on television and, more recently, in spectacularly profitable war video games. These games are now more profitable than feature war movies, and because they routinely brand handguns and other militarized weapons, they are linked to America’s private arms industry.
