nomination for General Hawley for asshole

General Hawley, is a newly retired USAF 4 star general. He commanded the Air Combat Command [our front-line fighters and bombers] at Langley AFB, VA. 

Although I agree with some of the opinions in this dialog - being a retired 4 star general does make you an asshole.  ~ welcome to the club General Hawley!

Dialog is as follows:

“Since the attack [9-11], I have seen, heard, and read thoughts of
such surpassing stupidity that they must be addressed. You’ve heard them
too.  Here they are:”

“Since the attack [9-11], I have seen, heard, and read thoughts of

1) “We’re not good, they’re not evil, everything is relative.” Listen

carefully: We’re good, they’re evil, nothing is relative. Say it with

me now and free yourselves. You see, folks, saying “We’re good” doesn’t

mean, “We’re perfect.” Okay? The only perfect being is the bearded guy on

the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. The plain fact is that our country

has, with all our mistakes and blunders, always been and always will be the

greatest beacon of freedom, charity, opportunity, and affection in history. If

you need proof, open all the borders on Earth and see what happens.

2) “Violence only leads to more violence.” This one is so stupid you

usually have to be the president of an Ivy League university to say

it. Here’s the truth, which you know in your heads and hearts already:

Ineffective, unfocused violence leads to more violence. Limp,

panicky, half measures lead to more violence. However, complete, fully thought

through,professional, well executed violence never leads to more violence

because, you see, afterwards, the other guys are all dead. That’s right, dead.

Not “on trial,” not “reeducated,” not “nurtured back into the bosom of love.” Dead.

3) “The CIA and the rest of our intelligence community have failed

us.” For 25 years we have chained our spies like dogs to a stake in the

ground, and now that the house has been robbed, we yell at them for not

protecting us. Starting in the late seventies, under Carter appointee Stansfield

Turner, the giant brains who get these giant ideas decided that the best way

to gather international intelligence was to use spy satellites. “After

all, (they reasoned,) you can see a license plate from 200 miles away.”

This is very helpful if you’ve been attacked by a license plate.

Unfortunately, we were attacked by humans. Finding humans is not possible with

satellites. You have to use other humans. When we bought all our satellites, we

fired all our humans, and here’s the really stupid part. It takes years,

decades to infiltrate new humans into the worst places of the world. You

can’t just have a guy who looks like Gary Busey in a Spring Break ‘93 sweatshirt

plop himself down in a coffee shop in Kabul and say “Hiya, boys. Gee, I sure would

like to meet that bin Laden fella.” Well, you can, but all you’d be doing

is giving the bad guys a story they’ll be telling for years.

4) “These people are poor and helpless, and that’s why they’re angry

at us.” Uh-huh, and Jeffrey Dahmer’s frozen head collection was just a

desperate cry for help. The terrorists and their backers are richer

than Elton John and, ironically, a good deal less annoying. The poor

helpless people, you see, are the villagers they tortured and murdered to stay

in power. Mohammed Atta, one of the evil scumbags who steered those

planes into the killing grounds is the son of a Cairo surgeon. But you knew

this, too. In the sixties and seventies, all the pinheads marching against

the war were upper-middle-class college kids who grabbed any cause they

could think of to get out of their final papers and spend more time

drinking. It’s the same today.

5) “Any profiling is racial profiling.” Who’s killing us here, the

Norwegians? Just days after the attack, the New York Times had an

article saying dozens of extended members of the gazillionaire bin Laden

family living in America were afraid of reprisals and left in a huff, never

to return to studying at Harvard and using too much Drakkar. I’m

crushed. Please come back. Let’s all stop singing “We Are the World”

for a minute and think practically. I don’t want to be sitting on the floor in the

back of a plane four seconds away from hitting Mt.Rushmore and turn,

grinning, to the guy next to me to say, “Well, at least we didn’t offend them.”

SO HERE’S what I resolve for the New Year: Never to forget our

murdered brothers and sisters. Never to let the relativists get away with

their immoral thinking. After all, no matter what your daughter’s

political science professor says, we didn’t start this. Have you seen

that bumper sticker that says, “No More Hiroshimas”? I wish I had one that says,

“No More Pearl Harbors.”
