CNN was having an orgasm this morning because they caught Gen. Honore telling a guardsman to put down his weapon as he rode near him in a jeep. They have found a new hero...a general who doesn't want his troups to look threatening while in a war zone. I do hope none of our guys get killed because of the PC general.
I like this guy. He oozes strength and leadership. The pointing weapons down is more a PR move than a PC move. Just last night NBC/Red Cross told people that the National Guard is there to pick off the blacks. The media is having a collective orgasm in hyping the racist Bush administration. Sometimes in a these situations perceptions are as relevant as truth.
I would like to think Honore's troops could point those weapons up in a mili second.
Anyone want to guess what political affiliation Honore would pledge allegiance to?

Funny how the RATS are desperately look for a Gilliani type of hero in this disaster for their party, but NONE to be found! GOOD! STINKING RATS!!
War Zone? This isn't Iraq, this is New Orleans, Louisiana. This is NOT A WAR ZONE.

...this guy is not a "PC" leader...I worked with him and I know him...he would have been a four star long ago if he had been politically correct, but he called his own shots, and told it like it was, which really, really assed up the command structure at Ft. Hood (he served under a guy named Byrne, who's been in the news lately)...he's the only general who took us to NTC, and did not play the politically correct game of letting the "contract maintenance" assholes at Ft. Erwin dick the division out of division money by charging us with maintenance faults on NTC equipment that predated our rotation- this guy is a serious feckin' hero...he's the real deal...
