Tja vroeger waren de bevelhebbers nog echte stoere mannen!


Tegenwoordig zijn het gefrustreerde politici die omwille van de populairiteit en de kiezer maar wat in het wilde weg roepen en onnodige levens op het spel zetten.


Helaas zijn het diezelfde "stoere" mannen van vroeger die zoveel onrust in de wereld zaaien.........................
