    As a Vietnam combat vet I will say a large fireworks display can sound similar to a firefight. But to equate a time honored tradition of a fireworks display with a "war zone" is just another example of those who find people enjoying themselves to be evil.
    Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.
