    Blood: the Last Vampire - allegorical?

    I (finally) saw Blood: The Last Vampire today and my first thought when it finished was that it was an allegory for America's involvement in the Vietnam War. Without having read the manga, I don't know if the choice of setting had other meaning.

    Does anyone else think this? Is it completely obvious? Or am I reading too much into it?

    I was in an argument with someone about it today, and I'd really like to hear some other opinions.

    Yay! I wasn't over-interpreting.

    Thinks: why would it have been set in a US military base in 1966 if it wasn't meant to be allegorical?
