Bush swoons over the "fantastic experience" of serving in Afghanistan

Joe Sudbay (DC), From Yglesias:

George W. Bush laments that his advanced age doesn't let him participate in his own screw-ups:

"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.

Need we note that when Bush had an actual opportunity to put his life on the line in a war, he chose to avoid doing so?

We do need to note that. And, it should probably be noted that five deferment Cheney also passed up the opportunity. If it's so romantic, maybe the Bush twins and the son-in-law to be should do a tour of duty in Kabul.
