Both Iron man and Captain America had great points (both pro and con) that I couldn't decide which side I should be on. I can understand how Spidey felt going from one side to another.

I wouldn't side with Communists OR Nazis. Capt. America over-reacted, adn realised he should have done it differently in the end.
