Your poem tells the truth. It is where you are standing. Here in the USA our Soldiers are heroes. But standing in a foreign land. The people of that country see men who want to steal and take. A outstanding poem. You wrote the truth.

Good call on the diamante poem! It worked really well because you had the pros of wars than the cons! It was a clever choice for sure :)

nice play on synonymous adjectives almost - a very descriptive poem! also like the mirror reflection - the change from the soldiers into the terrorists!! nice!

Clever and its true. You sort of wrote more than one point of view about soldiers, which is what I really liked the most about it. Nice Job :D

This poem is true. I like the symmetry because It really makes you question why it is that we have to go through this and where does the line get crossed. ....Bravo!
