Do what you want

In one of the scenes in Son of Babylon, a U.S. helicopter flew above the main characters when they were having their rest at night, and one of them cursed and sweared: “Do what you want, you own the earth; while we are down here and suffer.” Somehow I think one could imagine the saying to be applied to God when we feel so helpless and want to protest against him — especially in the Iraqi context of the film. The earth could be really hellish, indeed.
