McRaven's Speech Flops: The Racket of War vs. the Power of Peace

McRaven (2,144,812)
Williams (340,499,289)

     "People instinctively know that the racket of war is counterproductive.  The 340,449,289 who have viewed Pharrell Williams' "Happy" easily trumps Admiral William McRaven's 2,144,812 hits, but McRaven gets the 'bully pulpit' while decrying the world's bullies and while his troops kick in doors in Afghanistan or Iraq in a war based on a clear bamboozling of the America people.  At the same time Jeremy Scahill featured McRaven in the documentary "Dirty Wars".  After hearing his speech I think that a degree from UT is like a fossil relic."
