Post in the mode of imitatio dei...

Stealth concerns a robotic fighter jet with artificial intelligence. In our introduction to its abilities we learn that it has downloaded "all" of the digital music in existence, thus making it the world's most expensive IPOD and a distant cousin of Johnny #5. We are necessarily left wondering on what level the political unconscious was acting when the filmmakers chose to have the plane blow away half of North Korea, i.e. was this an allegory of forced labor in the region?

Note that a lightening strike causes the plane to increase its intelligence, whereas our IPOD, sadly, can't be taken out in the rain without shutting down completely.
