Upon further study, yes and no. If your effective military strength is high enough and you choose the specific ending for it, supposedly so (although I didn't get it that way and several others haven't either, even with meeting the requirements). I saw that ending on youtube and it's still immensely unsatisfying and with no closure whatsoever.
Don't get me wrong. 99% of this game is amazing. This game made me feel things so deeply that I'd never thought I'd feel about a game. That 1% is just really hard to ignore though.
