War is not a contemplative scenerio, and serves only one outcome - annihilation of human life. A form of mind control which causes man to kill his fellow man in the name of power and self righteousness. All soldiers must wonder what is at stake and what they stand to lose in death. Most have families, homes, civilian lives outside of their military existence. They are the ones sacrificing their lives while those in command sit at their desks and sign their death warrants (IMO) . This poem gets down to the nitty gritty of the matter in a very effective way. Thank you! Linda
