Great Leaders Think A Like

A few weeks ago, I spent a Saturday evening with some friends watching Return of the Jedi special edition. I say special edition because we skipped most scenes that didn't have Admiral Akbar in them. It's all about Admiral Akbar and his clear head in the face of nearly insurmountable odds.

Wait one minute. The only thing Ackbar did was dive head first into a blatant trap, tell his fleet to fly away from the thing called a "death star”, and turn on his shields when faced with the trap he got his entire fleet into.

Take it back, Diggs. Never speak of the Admiral in that way. Let us also not forget he told the good General Calrissian that their cruisers can't repel firepower of that magnitude, and that they've got to give those fighters more time, and to concentrate all fire on that Super Star Destroyer.

You know General Patton studied the lessons of Ackbar when training for war. And that is a science fact, my friend.
