The Perfumed Princes of the Pentagon

By Clyde Ward November 20, 2017

If you're not familiar with the term "Perfumed Prince," take a look at Air Force LTG Jay Silveria, Commander of the Air Force Academy, Colorado Springs. Silveria achieved the national spotlight by chewing out the entire class over racial slurs posted on five cadets' quarters. Months later, it turned out that one of the targets was actually the perpetrator................

Colonel David Hackworth coined the term "Perfumed Princes"to describe the leaders who sidestepped the Vietnam disaster and infested the senior ranks, playing the academic or business manager while they squeezed out soldiers on the soggy end.......... "Eau de Diversity" is the fab fragrance of the Perfumed Princes as required by the political elite...........

Marine staff sergeant Joseph Chamblin was punished for having urinated on a Taliban corpse five years ago.  The conviction was overturned this November, after discovering that then-general Amos had interfered in the judicial proceeding.  Amos wanted this sort of thing "crushed."..... This is right out of Brigadier General John Pershing's successful tactics in the Philippines, 1909-1913.....

Chamblin is luckier than Lt. Clint Lorance, who is serving a twenty-year sentence for opening fire on suspected Taliban scouts when they ran his check point. Lorance is one of the Leavenworth 10, referring to a fluctuating number of U.S. servicemen serving time while known terrorists are released from GITMO........Bowe Bergdahl walks on a dishonorable discharge.  Clint Lorence remains in jail.......... Bradley Manning received counseling regarding his sexual problems as required by regulation and cognizant authority.  The problem here is that cognizant authority is a Perfumed Prince.  It took a full-blown act of treason and espionage to reach the proper diagnosis. American elites are killing America...............To Read More...

My Take - Is it any wonder why I hated the officers when I served?  It is any wonder why I still despise them?

There are two groups we associate with being real leaders.  Ph.D's and military officers.  Both of those assumptions are wrong.   Give them a task and they will perform it admirably.  But that's not what real leadership is about.  That's merely good management skills.  

You show me a Ph.D candidate who tells everyone at his oral dissertation all their views are wrong and proves it - and I will show you a Ph.D candidate with a career Master's degree.

The same is true of officers.  Show me an officer who stands up to his superiors and proves them wrong and I will show you a career junior officer, if he's even allowed to remain in the service.

In most of these cases it's my belief this go along to get along mentality is intrinsic to the character of those who remain in these fields.  Reality merely forces this mentality to become a habit of a lifetime.   The fact of the matter is they learn early in life that to get along you gotta go along. 

In science grant money has now become the holy grail of science, not truth.  In the military "diversity and inclusion" is the holy grail of the officer corp.  It's high time the grant money was stripped away and these officers sent into retirement.  Preferrable some should be fired.  Hard to do?  Really? Put me in charge of that and I will show you just how easy it is.
