This piece touched an interesting topic. Though, I personally don't think war is any way to deal with any situation, the producer got several interesting perspectives on whether war would be OK if it were to protect themselves, or to liberate others from a controlling power. All valid arguments.
However, the beginning of the piece was too abrupt. The intro should not have started off with someone speaking right away, or at least a pause in between the start and someone speaking to ease the listener into the piece.
The music in the piece was overused. It was a nice addition but in the beginning it ran for too long, and later in the piece the music seemed too loud next to the interviewees. The music should have been lowered, or taken out. The music made the piece interesting, but overusing it can take away the listeners focus from the piece as a whole.
Overall the producer collected good audio and quotes and provided a lot of different views on the issue.
