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.

How clever, I love this. Soldiers as seen from both sides of the battle field.

This is a very strong piece, really puts a lot of issues forward, I like it. It is true that soldiers are not better than the enemy that they're fighting, but they themselves can see this and, in the end, they're doing their job. After all, if they're not there when the time comes, they'd be savages for not being there to protect those it is their duty to protect. However, at the same time it is astonishing what they're doing to one another - it is hard to put down, but on one hand they're doing good and the other bad; all one can say is that this is their job, this is what they've been told to do and so they must. My brother's in the army, training to be a chef in Germany at the moment - though he wants to go into bomb disposal or something more "epic" than being a chef.
Anyways, waffling now. This was a great strong piece here, I enjoyed it, keep it up~

I really like how short and simple it is. I think it makes the point all the more strong!

This tells the truth from both sides of the spectrum. even thought you are only using adj. in this piece it makes your point quite clearly.

You've captured the feeling of a nation with this. Nicely done.

Thats just the fact about soilders! Soilders are hero, who protect us from evils. I love this poem, although I suggest to change the grey colour to another colour, it seems a little too hard to read.
Your words have told the truth, amazing job!
