Watched this over and over. Noticed a large lightening storm in the background. Weather 'catastrophe' caused by unusually powerful storm. The city is not in 'ruins'. Only the bridge appears to be damaged. The whole video depicts the USAF and America as the saviors of humanity. They aren't!

9-11 DISASTER BACKDROP: These images were not put in without thought. The Air Force (military in general) is very particular about what they show. They are a culture steeped in secrecy and *classification.* They employ psychological operations to "guide" public opinions. The background and settings portrayed in the commercial are akin to the DEATH MURALS in the Denver Airport.
This is to slowly get the public used to such images, much like Michael Bay's ARMAGEDDON showed images of New York landmark buildings crashing to the streets (remember the scenes where the Chrysler Building (and others) was demolished? Also around that time was DEEP IMPACT, which also showed cities in disaster scenarios. Also around that time was STARSHIP TROOPERS had a large city get attacked which sent them to war in a place that looked a lot like Afghanistan (of course it was a different planet, but the desert resembled Afghanistan). Within a span of 3 years before 9-11, we were exposed to such images (NYC buildings crashing down) and an idea (being attacked, recruits going to war). That's how these things work. There are more examples, but I won't be tedious and list them all here.
The gist is that from many different sources, a basic message is established. So... be leary when you start seeing similar themes of destruction from different sources, be they comics, TV shows, movies, websites... The tendrils of government psyops are deeper than most people realize.
TRANSFORMING AIRCRAFT NOT SCI-FI: Nanotechnology. Thought interface. New materials such as glass-steel. Wireless drones. Mix this with the latest state-of-the-art concepts... and you have the kind of aircraft depicted in this commercial that clearly states that this is NOT sci-fi anymore. And the kicker is that TRUTH is usually *far stranger* than reality.

Dramatizing is one thing, showing apocalyptic type scenery involving a major modern city which involves complete destruction is suspect at best when it comes from Uncle Sam.
