War, Bush, and Romance

President Bush is envious of those fighting in the Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. At least that is according to the quote by Reuters in the President’s videoconference to those serving in Afghanistan on March 13th. Our President’s said, “I must say, I’m a little envious. 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.”

Romantic…huh. Rev. Mike Macdonald of Mooresville, NC had some interesting thoughts; go here to see his entire commentary. I’ll tease you with his ending paragraph; “I must say we all have reason to be envious of the soldiers serving in Afghanistan and Iraq. War is so romantic – it is such a fantastic experience. I am sure that is why Jesus Christ – the President’s professed favorite philosopher – spoke so highly of it. I am glad we have such a Christian president.”

What part of loving our neighbors does war not understand?
