      I like the poem because I can tell there's thought behind it and that it wasn't just put together in a matter of minutes, however I dislike the poems subject because it seems to contradict itself. 'Whatever done is fair, ' If that's the case, then what's the point of the second section of this poem?
      And that's not the only problem I have with this poem, my other problem is that for some bizare reason you think all of America, every single person within our borders supports the war. America is such a diverse place that it is impossible for all of us to agree on one thing. While you never specifically mention all of america, you use the pronoun 'you', which is second person, which implies that anyone who reads this, or any American who reads this, is comlpicit with what you've said. Which is just not true, or fair.
      And my final point is that if you're 'not naïve, ' and that you know 'the ugly truth, ' then what the hell are you whining about? People rarely fight wars about anything really 'noble', they fight wars for resources, for territory, for petty things. I guess what I want to say is: quit complaining, you're nothing special. But I know that's not right, and I know that you've got your right to say how you feel, but to me it just sounds like you're whining, and nobody likes a whiner. So my question to you is: would you rather the Americans have no pretenses about what they're doing? Is that it? Are you just tired of the doublespeak, the phoniness? If so, then I take back calling you a 'whiner', I totally agree with you: I'm tired of the doublespeak, of the phoniness. I have no problem with evil, as long as it makes no pretenses about its nature.

      Lamest poem evar! Do you even know what an apostrophe is? !

      The feelings may be heartfelt, but the poem itself is trite and slightly cliche.
