Youre missing the point, it can be both it has a duality, also i must say i feel talked down to, this isnt a moral matter, its scientific. Cool is not good cool is cool, its exciting, its extreme. Maybe american think of cool differently, but i would define enjoying fighting, cool.
Dominating another human being is Enjoyable.
Captain Tom Moore: " “I can’t say I didn’t enjoy myself because I did… being in the Army, I really enjoyed being in the Army.” Captain Tom’s War ITV 1 - 2021
“Battle is the most magnificent competition in which a human being can indulge.” Patton
“Its the most fun you can have with your clothes on” Army Air Corp Pilot "Our War in Afghanistan BBC 2012
“If i didn’t like it, i wouldn’t have come back” Royal Marine 4-2 commando, Royal Marines - Mission Afghanistan 2001, Channel 5
“That scene in fury, with the tanks in a line all firing, thats why i became a tanker” -Nicolus Morran (yes, the one on the channel.)
Perhaps the latter quote is more about the idea of war, than its reality, but regardless, war is in some aspect, in the moment, “cool”.
If you define cool as “okay” then sure, but i dont usually, being in my late 20s, see cool this way, tho it has that use.
Explosions are the highest form of cool. thats the best way i can define cool as such as i use it.
If Indy was saying, war is not good, then that i wouldnt write this question, because good, and fun arent the same thing, but cool is, fun. And to say war is not fun, is to deny the reality of humans being highly evolved, animals
