Hate is a personal thing and since i don't know him... All Rickover in my opinion achieved was expanding on what was already there and since what was
already there were in my opinion not what was required to win, well you know how i feel.
The US naval service expanded at a time when the USSR had
already achieved the type of strategic dominance that a hundred extra US submarines could simply not undo. Some have also suggested that his focus on
creating a 'safe' navy resulted in men being selected to keep machines running smoothly instead of focusing their attention on becoming adept at
fighting their ships.
EDIT: Will try to get to the speech but both Clinton and Hitler, like most other lia rs before them, had some pretty 'inspiring speeches.
EDIT: Turns out neither Clinton or Hitler said anything quite so lucid..... Not sure if i would like to work for him but i think i would like him
working for me!
