Hey that was pretty cool.

I'm Geroge Washington.


Portrait: George Washington
National Archives


Biography:
George Washington was not only the first president but also an accomplished general. Against daunting odds, Washington launched a guerrilla war that lasted for six years and ultimately drove the British from the colonies. At many points during the conflict, the army was close to disintegrating. But through Washington's force of leadership, the colonists succeeded and he established a model for future American military leaders to follow.

Leadership Attributes:
General Washington was known for his cautious, measured, and highly successful generalship. Understanding that conventional war against the British was useless, he waged a well-planned guerilla campaign. He was also skilled in diplomacy, both as a politician and in his military career. He elicited French help in forcing the surrender of Cornwallis at Yorktown. Also, he deftly negotiated the relations between military and civilian authority. Personally, the first President was reserved. But he won the love and respects of his troops — and nation




it was all very believable until i read this: Personally, the first President was reserved.

Douglas MacArthur!

Ironically enough, I have MacArthur's farewell speech to West Point on vinyl record, and it is one of the most interesting speeches of American history. He gets into the issues of right now, as well as what the future might bring, including the day when the aliens attack and interplanetary battles ensure. But, also the political problems that we are currently fighting over. Great stuff..

Given to the Corps of Cadets at West Point
May 12, 1962

quote:
http://www.nationalcenter.org/MacArthurFarewell.html


................However horrible the incidents of war may be, the soldier who is called upon to offer and to give his life for his country, is the noblest development of mankind.

You now face a new world, a world of change. The thrust into outer space of the satellite, spheres and missiles marked the beginning of another epoch in the long story of mankind - the chapter of the space age. In the five or more billions of years the scientists tell us it has taken to form the earth, in the three or more billion years of development of the human race, there has never been a greater, a more abrupt or staggering evolution. We deal now not with things of this world alone, but with the illimitable distances and as yet unfathomed mysteries of the universe. We are reaching out for a new and boundless frontier. We speak in strange terms: of harnessing the cosmic energy; of making winds and tides work for us; of creating unheard synthetic materials to supplement or even replace our old standard basics; of purifying sea water for our drink; of mining ocean floors for new fields of wealth and food; of disease preventatives to expand life into the hundred of years; of controlling the weather for a more equitable distribution of heat and cold, of rain and shine; of space ships to the moon; of the primary target in war, no longer limited to the armed forces of an enemy, but instead to include his civil populations; of ultimate conflict between a united human race and the sinister forces of some other planetary galaxy; of such dreams and fantasies as to make life the most exciting of all time.

And through all this welter of change and development your mission remains fixed, determined, inviolable. It is to win our wars. Everything else in your professional career is but corollary to this vital dedication. All other public purpose, all other public projects, all other public needs, great or small, will find others for their accomplishments; but you are the ones who are trained to fight.

Yours is the profession of arms, the will to win, the sure knowledge that in war there is no substitute for victory, that if you lose, the Nation will be destroyed, that the very obsession of your public service must be Duty, Honor, Country.

Others will debate the controversial issues, national and international, which divide men's minds. But serene, calm, aloof, you stand as the Nation's war guardians, as its lifeguards from the raging tides of international conflict, as its gladiators in the arena of battle. For a century and a half you have defended, guarded and protected its hallowed traditions of liberty and freedom, of right and justice.

Let civilian voices argue the merits or demerits of our processes of government. Whether our strength is being sapped by deficit financing indulged in too long, by federal paternalism grown too mighty, by power groups grown too arrogant, by politics grown too corrupt, by crime grown too rampant, by morals grown too low, by taxes grown too high, by extremists grown too violent; whether our personal liberties are as firm and complete as they should be.

These great national problems are not for your professional participation or military solution. Your guidepost stands out like a tenfold beacon in the night: Duty, Honor, Country.

You are the leaven which binds together the entire fabric of our national system of defense. From your ranks come the great captains who hold the Nation's destiny in their hands the moment the war tocsin sounds.

The long gray line has never failed us. Were you to do so, a million ghosts in olive drab, in brown khaki, in blue and gray, would rise from their white crosses, thundering those magic words: Duty, Honor, Country.

This does not mean that you are warmongers. On the contrary, the soldier above all other people prays for peace, for he must suffer and bear the deepest wounds and scars of war. But always in our ears ring the ominous words of Plato, that wisest of all philosophers: "Only the dead have seen the end of war."

The shadows are lengthening for me. The twilight is here. My days of old have vanished - tone and tints. They have gone glimmering through the dreams of things that were. Their memory is one of wondrous beauty, watered by tears and coaxed and caressed by the smiles of yesterday. I listen then, but with thirsty ear, for the witching melody of faint bugles blowing reveille, of far drums beating the long roll.

In my dreams I hear again the crash of guns, the rattle of musketry, the strange, mournful mutter of the battlefield. But in the evening of my memory I come back to West Point. Always there echoes and re-echoes: Duty, Honor, Country.

Today marks my final roll call with you. But I want you to know that when I cross the river, my last conscious thoughts will be of the Corps, and the Corps, and the Corps.

I bid you farewell.

What's wrong with General Sherman? He was one of the greatest and most effective Generals in the Civil War and he had a great grasp of tactics and strategy. Now I can't imagine what it would take to be named Ghengis Kahn.

Based on your answers, your profile matches...

Arthur Wellesley, Duke of Wellington!

Biography:
Known as the Iron Duke, the Duke of Wellington was an accomplished leader both politically and militarily. After attending military school, he was sent to India, where he defeated the Tipu Sultan and the Marathas. When the Portuguese rose against Napoleon, Wellesley was ordered to support them, and he won success in what became known as the Peninsular War. He invaded France days after Napoleon abdicated. However, when Napoleon escaped exile and rose again, Wellington and the Prussian field marshal Gebhard Leberecht Blücher defeated him at the famous battle of Waterloo. Consequently, he became Britain's greatest hero. He later leveraged his popularity on the battlefield to become Prime Minister.

Leadership Attributes:
Wellington was known as a cautious general and a careful planner. He paid great attention to detail, with outstanding results. He was as great a diplomat as warrior. After victory at Assaye in India, he personally negotiated the treaty. A hero of the entire nation, Wellington was reserved and unassuming.

That was a interesting experiment.

I got George Patton - I'm humbled. What a great leader, too bad he isn't around today.

Grant,but I was hoping for that guy from North Korea. He is **** ing crazy!! I was watching a show on National Geographic Explorer last night. They had on a guy who defected from North korea and the stories he was telling were nuts. Work camps everywhere, and if you defect your family goes to the workcamp. I always knew he was a little crazy, but I didn't realize he was on par with Stalin. Good thing we are going to give him a boatload more cash. That man is a genious!! Allegedly, he has a huge collection of porn too, allegedly. Sorry for the tangent. Carry on.

If you want more Kim John Ill then you should certainly watch Team America. Kim is like the star of the movie.

But seriously, he is China's puppet.
