Apparently in Afghanistan.<br><br><i>"It must be exciting for you ... in some ways romantic, in some ways, you know, confronting danger. You're really making history, and thanks," Bush said.</i><br><br><a href="http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20080313/pl_nm/bush_afghanistan_dc_1" target="_blank">http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20080313/...ghanistan_dc_1</a><br><br>
I know the story is about Afghanistan but I know a couple of guys that have been in Iraq. I don't think they ever used the words exciting or romantic when describing it... <img alt="roll_eyes.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/roll_eyes.gif">

I wonder if I just have a warped view of the experience of battle. I can imagine excitement, anger, sadness, pride and a lot of other emotions but I am missing the romance part.

I still don't see any romantic about war.

I'm afraid Eliot isn't going to have much excitment there for a while. Hope he stocked up....

He is hardly the first to suggest that war is somehow romantic, but its still stupid.<br><br>
Hemmingway pretty much orgasmed every time he talked about bull fighting, and thats stupid too.
