To see the things as they are is necessary to have attention.

The Brazilian press announced with a lot of seriousness the failure of the test of the new war weapon of the USA:


The airplane-missile, missile-airplane, or what wants him to be, that it would turn the invincible USA in the next 50 years balanced, it balanced, it balanced and it fell in the Ocean. A digital animation of the one that happened is available in the Internet:


All know that we lived a remakes wave, old films have been filmed with new techniques and small alterations in the itineraries (as for instance, I Am Legend, Batman, etc...). In spite of they be very aware of the phenomenon, the journalists didn't notice the refined irony suggested by the news of the American military failure.

It happens that the animation of Falcon HTV-2'S failure to it seems a remake of the first scene of the film The Great Dictator http://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/O_Grande_Ditador .

The scene of the film is also available in the Internet:


After being announced with military emphasis and virile language, the new super-cannon that finally will provide superiority and victory to Tomânia enters in action. But what happens is a grotesque and funny failure, exactly as in the case Falcon HTV-2.

On this exact moment, the USA are stalled in two wars (Iraq and Afghanistan) and, once and for all in as, it leaks for press his intention of accomplishing military operations against Iran. Therefore, the similarities between Chaplin's Tomânia and the USA of Obama are evident. The plausible comparison, however, it was not done by the press. This for me is a sad proof the when the civilized Occident totaly sank in the American government and military propaganda.
