On the other hand, unlike aaron I really like that music- got a kind of 'Loreena McKennitt' thing going on, tho' it doesn't seem to fit the mood in this flash animation. FYI, a little tracking down, and it turns out it's from the band Darling Violetta (wonder if they or the Dubya-B* network are aware their music's been used like this?) which composed it as the theme for that "Buffy" spinoff show Angel. It's got the almost-laughably goth title of "Catharsis of Sufferance".
* It just occurred to me that "Dubya B." could be both a TV network and a killer rap name for George Bush...posted by hincandenza at 3:49 PM on September 15, 2001

On the flip side, it's actually interesting- given the "jingoism"* surrounding this whole debacle, phrases in that AYBABTU gif such as "Great Justice" don't seem so much Engrish anymore as the very kind of uber-patriotic doublespeak currently being slung around newsrooms and dinner tables...
