Fighter pilots make great leaders

But not this one.

Fighter pilots fight to win. But they also know their limits.

You can't overstress the aircraft. And you can't bomb where you're not supposed to bomb. Nor can a fighter pilot go joy riding and burn fuel "because he feels like it."

There are rules.

This fighter pilot is aggressive, as all fighter pilots should be.

But he has crossed the line.

And he needs to be disciplined. Brought back under the rules.

Yet, there is no discipline. This fighter pilot continues to bomb and strafe civilians; continues to turn a blind eye toward abuses.

He is not a leader. He is a fighter pilot.

Someone else needs to lead. Before it is too late.
