5 years

That's how the war in Iraq has been going on. When it started, I was on my way to Afghanistan, so I was a little preoccupied to fully understand why we were going there. After my past year here, I have seen some definite progress, and I have felt extreme frustration. I want to be proud of what we have done here, and I am, but at the same time, when our Prez says something like this, I want to puke. Romantic? Really? I guess it is, maybe, if being away from your family for years on end is romantic, and enduring situations that you never want to think about again is romantic. This summary of his comments says it all, and says it well.

The only thing romantic going on in this place is when my roommate was on R&R and I had a trailer and a stack of Japanese lingerie catalogs all to myself.

Wow. I kind of just don't even know what to say about that quote. How about......

Romance will be seeing your wife, being back in your hometown, and having two whole, perfect feet on American soil again.

I can't wait until this blog is about beer. I hate beer, but let us know when you get home, cause I want to drink a beer in your honor. ;-)
