Riding Herd on the New World Order

Spectacular Adventuring and U.S. Imperialism
"Adventure has the gesture of the conquerer, the quick seizure of opportunity, regardless of whether the portion we carve out is harmonious or disharmonious with us, with the world, or with the relation between us and the world." (Simmel 1971, 193)
It was the photo opportunity that everyone still remembers. President Bush welcomed the aircraft carrier Abraham Lincoln back in port. He personally flew the plane accompaniment, landed in a jet fighter, and strutted in pilot garb under the banner, "Mission Accomplished." Those who did not support the war, or President Bush in general, were outraged. How could he say "Mission Accomplished" when Iraq was obviously a bloody mess? The liberal media spawned a series of commentaries on the event, The Village Voice speculating that the true goal was to present Bush in a uniform that tightly framed his crotch displaying his macho bravado to a nervous public. Harper's Magazine reported on the extra expense incurred for Bush's landing to be staged. The pilot wavered about how long the President actually controlled the plane after it was pointed out that he was not licensed to fly the aircraft. Instead of a substantive debate about U.S. military imperialism by those who were opposed to such activities, we had a scuffle about whether the depiction of President Bush was true to life or a staged hoax. We can lift the curtain to reveal the truth behind the image! Mission accomplished indeed.
