Re: Watchmen movie ending blows...

We get ...

"Oh, you managed to squid-ify one city. Woop dee doo. Congrats."

Or ...

"Man, you blew up every major population point in most of the civilized world with an explosion that cites one of our own allies as the cause because you're a cold-hearted motherfucker. Damn y'know, this sure does unite a lot of people against one force, even if they're terrified of that force. Fuck, and y'know I bet it took a lot of work to make it look like a Manhattan thing."

Edit: This is from Dave Gibbons' storyboards of the film. Note the scale. I think this makes it equally valid as the original, considering that Ozymandias' goal is utopia, and by destroying the central capitals of the world, people will need to work together and stop turning against each other in general. (Hence the focus against Dr. Manhattan; when he abandons Earth, he can be focused upon as an enemy.)
