Yep, they're just warring with each other
“I like my stories to mean something and touch on current headlines,” Millar said. “It’s too easy to write stories about Spider-Man kicking the crap out of the Green Goblin.Really? Then maybe you just shouldn't have written that Marvel Knights story with Spidey kicking the crap out of Gobby using a mailbox!
The following part, however, is downright offensive:
“America’s war against this phantom axis of evil was probably the biggest factor in the election and I felt that, if superheroes really existed, they’d be under enormous pressure to get involved. [Around] 1100 mostly poor, mostly black kids have died out there, so how could someone like Captain America just stay here and fight bank robbers or mad scientists? Superheroes are all about responsibility and doing the right thing so it seemed like a nice, complex situation to throw them into this fight that some of them support and many of them don’t.”So, is that what he thought then and now? Just how well informed is Millar anyway? This page, which keeps track of casualties in Iraq, gives a readout far different from what he must've thought. Pulling out the race card is no way to voice his opposition to the war against terrorism. (By the way, I wonder where his condemnation is for the Muslim savages who murdered any of the soldiers whose lives were lost. Doesn't sound like he's serious if he can't curse the enemy for their crimes.) Nor is denying the existance of the evil of Islamofascism, as he did back then.
It's a real shame that the same company that put out a Support Our Troops comic book is at the same time insulting them by acting as ungrateful as they do with Civil War. As long as people like Joe Quesada are in power, this is likely to keep on going.
