skarpi - many people were very angry about that poem of Betjemans - especially as it was written durinhg the worst excesses of the civilian bombing campaign of the Spanish Civil War.
If you read it carefully however you will see that it expresses Betjeman's anger at what he perceives as being wrong with the country he loved and was never meant to be anything other than savage satire.

I think that, as someone who is opposed to the wanton and unlawful destruction of human life in the Middle East, you can see that no one is seriously suggesting the destruction of your beautiful country but they too are angry at American policy.
