Here's George Bush's take today on being a U.S. soldier 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.
What a fuck up. While his family and cronies continue to make out like bandits in arms and oil sales (and don't even get me started on blackwater), over 5% of soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan are dealing with PTSD, a *devastating* psychological disorder. How'd ya like to be in that lottery--1 in 20? For what? What amazing gains have been made in exchange for these costs?
Excuse me while I just go scream really loud.
