Default Why I chose a gun

Peter van Uhm is the Netherlands’ chief of defense at TEDxAmsterdam. He explains how his career is one shaped by a love of peace, not a desire for bloodshed -- and why we need armies if we want peace.

He sounds like a wise man, however it saddens me to see an Allied Military Leader needing to play the politician and solicit his countrymens support for the very military that defends their liberty.

Could you imagine Norman Schwartzkopf or George Patton doing this?

Nonetheless it was an entertaining speech by a man with obvious passion for his cause.

Tack
