Did General Patreaus Really Have To Quit Cos He Cheated On His Wife? Was It Really A National Security Risk?
In the last couple of years, various respected public servants, from former Representative Anthony Weiner to action star turned former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, have acknowledged to wandering away from their marriage.
Some people are inclined to undervalue how rapidly small risks mount up. You do something once and get away with it but when you keep on practicing them frequently, eventually the risk gets fairly high. An admitted affair has dilapidated the career and reputation of CIA Director David Petraeus, cueing the question: Did General Petraeus really have to quit because he cheated on his wife? Was it really a national security risk? Why do people risk so much to lose it all for sex?
A national security risk
A Marine Commandant once said in an assembly of officers overseas, “How can you be trusted to keep faith with your country and corps if you can’t be faithful to your wife and family?” A point well made. Extramarital affairs are particularly speculative for CIA employees with access to classified information since a liaison enables the person open to blackjack. Reportedly, Petraeus left his job because proof led people to believe that he may have handed classified information to Broadwell. The blackmail could be petty. The squeeze to remain loyal is perpetually present for the welfare of raising children, but the measure of faithfulness is not borne without the chance of betrayal. General Petraeus could be someone who seeks prominence by obsequious behavior, the type to tie the knot with the general’s daughter. A climber does what’s in his best interest and is not very faithful to anyone or anything above himself.
He just cheated. Period.
According to more news, he resigned because of his liaison. What raises an argument is how being the director of the CIA and having a storming sexual desire are mutually exclusive activities? It is a conclusion as “General Petraeus resigned because the sky is blue.” There is a particular tintinnabulation in hell for husbands who cheat; however, not all good public servants are good husbands and not all good husbands are good public servants. What would the world seem like if all men who cheated opted to leave the office? The economy would extremely decline. The only working people would be the divorce lawyers.
Why sexual contact does cause people’s career to end?
Why do people even bother whom is sleeping with whom? He had an extramarital romance and he’s an adulterous bastard – Allow his spouse to deal with it and divorce him like he be worthy of, and let him go on with his life. Fact: People are only concerned when someone famous cheats. Why people risk so much for sex? It’s because it’s sex. People are born in this world to breed. General Petraeus is a man – you believe he can defy some hot piece of office intern? The prime reason why he had risked so much for carnality is that everyone grossed out and pressed him to give up his career. However, that does not unmake what he did. People should stick their noses out of his business and let his wife kick his ass and be done with it.
Our society uses “bold risk takers” as a respected attribute of a business person. It takes more to be more loyal than it does to betray. Semper-Fidelis has an intention. Our sex-oriented society fails to acknowledge the truth about our own lives. Sex is not a mender; it is yielding over much value in this society. While we all have chemistry with each other, we miss the importance of even taking account of that chemistry because we permit society to determine sex as the most pressing matters. We shake off the grandness of love, which has more value than sex. A handicapped person can still have a loving relationship with their spouse. Get real.
