Some men carry and handle their diplomacy better than others.
When former U.S. Military commander in Afghanistan, General McChrystal,
was called into the Oval Office by Barack Obama,
he knew things weren’t going to go well when the President
accused him of not supporting him in his political role as President.
“It’s not my job to support you as a politician,
Mr. President, it’s my job to support you as Commander-in-Chief,”
McChrystal replied, and he handed Obama his resignation.
Not satisfied with accepting McChrystal’s resignation,
the President made a cheap parting shot.
I bet when I die you’ll be happy to piss on my grave.”
The General saluted and said,
Mr. President, I always told myself after leaving
the Army I’d never stand in line again.
