Eh, this show's making me feel icky. The war between Jericho and New Bern was one thing, but an entire military fascist government set up in Cheyenne that is just this instant Nazi-like dictatorship is not a fun show to watch each week. If they're so evil so quickly, it'd be easier to swallow if they were aliens, like in V. But I think there are too many good people and freedom-loving people in the US to just put up with something like this, especially guys in the military. "Follow an unelected leader who's a puppet for a black-hearted corporation? Yes sir!" Not buying it.
I recognize it's a metaphor. They're basically saying in nuclear war, Halliburton and Blackwater now rule the western U.S. D.B. Sweeney is doing a good job of being evil. I hate his character and can't wait for him to die.
