You could contrast the typical american experience with the front line actions of war.
Start with an american family enjoying a comedy on t.v. (or a video game if it doesn't confuse the issue). ..maybe even channel surfing past news on the war.
Cut to footage of killings on the front line.
Cut back to Americans enjoying themselves.
Cut to foreigners in agony over their loved ones (and children) dying.
..back-n-forth with various footage.
Wrap it up with strange stares of foreigners to Americans and maybe even some insensitive comments toward the foreigners.
End it with either footage or commentary on non-terrorist picking up arms against U.S. military in retaliation.
That might show a more tangible story consistent with a common american experience.
God Bless America (we need it).
