TODAY'S SPINELESS WORLD LEADERS AND THEIR CONTROLLED OPPOSTION GROUPS
Here chicky chicky...
"I propose that all of these people be referred to as possessors of the Cheney Gene. It is an unidentified gene that turns the belly yellow when country calls. It is possessed by people who when called to serve say, Hell no, I won’t go. People who possess this gene have given the word “conservative” new meaning. Historically it has meant save the status quo, the old regime. Now it means save my skin.
These people are experts on war from afar. Some of these people have held high diplomatic and Pentagon posts. Dick Cheney, James Schlesinger, Harold Brown, William Cohen, Richard Perle, Paul Wolfowitz, John R. Bolton, Elliott Abrams, Doug Feith are some of the most prominent beaters of war drums who have never served. All are neocons who chose to save their own skins; all have the Cheney gene.
Historically it has not always been this way. The elite of nations have often led their armies into battle. The word “aristocracy” originally referred to young Athenians of the ruling class who led armies by holding up their swords from the front lines. This usage passed on to the European Middle Ages in reference to a similar class of military leaders, the nobility.
Numerous national leaders led their armies into battle: Sennacherib, Suleiman, Xerxes, Darius, the Spartan Kings, especially Leonidas, Alexander the Great, some Roman Caesars, Henry II of England, Philip II of France, Richard I, Frederick I Barbarossa, Leopold V of Austria, Saladin, Gustavus Adolphus of Sweden, Gustav II Adolf, Henry VIII, and, of course, Napoleon. No longer! Today our leaders cower behind the rhetoric of super patriotism which is no patriotism at all, just bombast meant to save their own skins."
