4. few Generals I can say I liked

Wesley Clark seems like a good guy.

I liked Ike, but I was a child.

There's a nest of these fellows, though, who are like a cabal. They are openly dismissive of the primacy of civilian control of the military, and are wedded to the notion that the survival of these defense industries with their multi-billion dollar backlogs of approved projects is the same as defending our national security. The only thing perpetuating these operators and actors is their ability to churn out these official looking position papers and presentations behind their spit and polish to their congressional benefactors who accept them, often unquestioned, like moms pinning a toddler's drawing to the fridge.
