don't really know how to answer your post.
Very clever guy who wrote the critque, typical subversive stuff we have all seen for years.
My Generals came up, normally from Sandhurst and did their time stood in the line, Aden, Borneo, NI by the score and some back to Korea and even WW II.
I must however admit that I do find US officers more political, I have even seen talk of Patraues for VP come the fall.
No way we will ever see a Brit General officer runing for high office.
