Re: Theory of Study versus Theory of Doctrine

Thank you Mr. Perry for adding some more spice to the cauldron.

Resignation! Don’t they teach, that is supposed to be bad manners among staff officers? Especially, if we are talking about the top brass in the Executive Office of the President. An attitude of resignation results in billions of tax payer’s US Dollars spent or hundreds of sons, daughters, fathers and mothers of the US armed forces killed or maimed, ruthlessly, because someone, with the authority and the responsibility, did not make the stand for them! May I add: Resignation does not shed off responsibility.
