Dude, get informed once in a while. Don't believe everything Rosie O'Donnell and Keith Olberman say.

Jason...please read 1badf350's comment. Seriously, turn off the tv and do some real research and get informed.

Regardless, my heart broke reading this poem. My son is 6 and I can't imagine going through what all the mothers are going through sending their children off to war. God Bless them and keep their children safe. No matter how old my children grow to be, they will always remain my babies.
