If The Choice is Between Americans and Vicious Aliens, They'll Take the Aliens...

German magazine Der Spiegel, in an interview with Tom Cruise and Steven Spielberg, speculates on the global reaction to an alien invasion:
SPIEGEL: Aren't you afraid that audiences in some parts of the world may even applaud when they see Americans lying on the ground?

Spielberg: I wouldn't want to speculate about that. We aren't responsible if people perceive the film differently because of their ideology and their aversion to our country.
Ye gads, has it come to this? The question is troublesome enough, but people cheering dead Americans? Ah, those sophisticated Europeans...
