*** Or maybe it won't. Comic V doesn't really care either way, tearing down the old being his only goal. Building something new he leaves for his successor.

* in ''Film/EmpireOfTheSun'', Basie mentions to Jim that the worst part of a war were the beginning and end. When the Japanese invade, they bomb Shanghai, and eliminate any token resistance, while people run every which way they can, and Jim loses his parents in the chaos. When the occupation sets in, foreign nationals are rounded up where they try to lead a comfortable life under Japanese care. [[spoiler: When the Empire of Japan is defeated, the internees run out of the camp as allied forces systematically destroy any remnants of Japanese resistance, and Jim has to fend for himself for a while after being forsaken by Basie, until he's found by Allied forces and reunited with his parents.]]

* In ''ApocalypseNerd,'' North Korea bombs Seattle, and while a "nerd camp" and a feminist commune seem to be weathering being cut off by the U.S. government in the Cascade mountains just fine, but outside the camps, there are raving gangs of big city refugees and Native Americans looting small towns and other settlements of any useful supplies.

* The collapse of Sadam's dictatorial government led to the Americans entering Baghdad almost unposed. That also had the unintended consequence of ending any semblance of law and order as Iraqi army personnel abandoned their posts and the police stopped patrolling the streets. Jails were opened liberating political prisoners, as well as legitimate criminals. While the U.S. Army guarded several strategic spots in the city, the jubilant crowds went ahead and looted Sadam's palaces, shops, museums, and other peoples' homes. Sadam's merciless tactics ensured that all Iraqis were oppressed equally, and anyone who showed dissent was brutally taken down. With his army, and brutality gone, militant extremist groups grew by leaps and bounds, forcing the U.S. into a bloody guerilla war, and eventually led to the rise of ISIS.

* ''Film/IndependenceDay'' featured an upcoming alien invasion with a wide range of behaviour: panicking masses, looting, people trying to initiate contact, media covering the events, people awaiting more information, military calmly preparing for the worst. According to ConfusedMatthew, ''Independence Day'' was one of the first films that portrayed events before and after the attack more or less plausibly.
