-“What kind of friends are we?”

Whose words/thoughts are this?

- "This is unbelievable!", shouted Major General Jack O'neill as he entered his home.

Cut out the comma after the exclamation mark, “O’neill” should be “O’Neill.”

-So, the content...okay, I can't help but wonder whether I'm reading a shipping oneshot or political statement. Because in a setting that includes goa'uld, replicators, Ori, and whatnot, Israel is thrown into things because...reasons? I'm not saying you can't write a story concerning the Israel-Palestine issue in the Stargate setting, but here it feels so short and out of place that it drags the story down with it. And in a story that's less than 500 words long, it's a very noticeable deviation. At the end, it's mostly fluff, with a political statement that feels tangental.

Of course we won't talk about the Israeli rockets and missiles raining down on Palestinian civilians or the random murder of their enemies without fair trials? We won't talk about the settling of the west bank - which isn't theirs. We won't talk about the abuse of civil rights by the Israeli government?

Wonder how many government officials had that conversation over Israel. I think you captured exactly how Jack would feel about it. Good job.

Thank you for writing this! Standing with Israel is so important . . . would to God that our leaders felt as General O'Neill.

Thanks for speaking out about Israel. As an American, I'm extremely embarrassed and ashamed of our current President. He was re-elected by morons.

I so agree. I'm still outraged at leaving our people behind.

Thank you. Thank you for writing this. It was a beautiful story and a good reminder that there are actual horrors taking place right now in this world. A sobering story. Well done.

Oh, thank you, thank you, thank you! I am not going to put any political spin on anything, but I just want to thank you for letting known your strong feelings about protecting the innocents, about standing up for and DOING what's right ... THANK YOU! You are reminding everyone of an America that should be dedicated to standing by its friends - short and succinct, but powerful story. Oh, would that there are more real Jack O'Neills out there! If so, maybe I'd name one of my kids Ja'ak too. :) Great man. Great characterization. Thanks again.
