Camouflage and Children of Men
I recently saw the movie Children of Men starring Clive Owen, Julianne Moore and Michael Caine. It is a futuristic movie set in the year 2027 and apparently by then women will be unable to have children, our society will be run by a dictatorship obsessed with detaining illegal immigrants, and the government's domestic policy includes shipping suicide kits to its citizens. Come to think of it we might not have to wait another 20 years for these things to come to fruition; especially when we are shoving BigMacs down our throats, authorizing cloned meat and gene modified vegetables, and raiding meat packing plants in Nebraska. More of this and maybe suicide kits are not such a bad option ahhaahah. But why indulge the government further: they can already check our mail, what books we take out of the library, secretly raid our homes, detain people without legal representation, and now screen our bank accounts? Why give them our lives as well?
At any rate, what I really enjoyed about this movie, apart from the traumatizing fighting scene at the end, was the unique camouflage pattern that the government troops were wearing. Searching my various camouflage pattern links yielded little result, but I did come across this website:
This unique camouflage pattern looked very effective in urban combat settings. I also stumbled across this unique pattern in my research.
Designed by Crye Industries, Multicam is an excellent choice for desert and arid conditions. In fact some contractors in Afghanistan and Iraq are using this pattern.
