Bush says if younger, he would work in Afghanistan .

From Reuters- Bush says if younger, he would work in Afghanistan.:

"'I must say, I'm a little envious,' Bush said. 'If I were slightly younger and not employed here, I think it would be a fantastic experience to be on the front lines of helping this young democracy succeed.'

'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."

This is the shit that really pisses me off about Bush. He does not understand. He doesn't get it because he has never had blisters on the bottom of his feet the size of golf balls cause the combat boots your wearing are so damn tight after they get wet, they constantly rub your feet. Bush has never had to look a 10 year old in the eye and wonder if the kid has a grenade in his pocket. He has never seen his best friends head explode from a sniper shot. He has never felt the warm piss run down his leg as the nerve gas in his lungs starts to shut down his nervous system leaving a soldier to drown in his own blood and vomit. You know something Mr. President? Confronting danger usually requires a bayonet and the will to run that bayonet between the ribs of the man looking to do the same to you. If I were you I would be envious too. Envious of the courage it takes to make you man enough to serve on the front lines of a war. This is another case of those who know the deal don't have to talk about it. They just know. And sometimes that aint a good thing.
