BBC NEWS | World | Americas | 'Endgame' for US mission in Iraq
US Defence Secretary Robert Gates has told US troops in Iraq that their mission there is in its "endgame".
Is it just me or is that a particularly insensitive term to use to describe a war? The only other place I've ever heard the word used is to describe what you do in World of Warcraft once you reach the maximum level; you no longer level up, you do raids and other stuff which is called the "Endgame".

It also seems to have certain apocalyptical connotations, the idea that jesus and the devil are going to have a big fight at the end of the world and all that.

Maybe it's just me...
