No moral courage

•Watching the RTE programme 'Crisis Inside the Cowen Government' reminded me of how as a young boy I used to read how the former German generals all said that they were only following orders.

What disturbs me most is that nobody had the moral courage at the time to say enough was enough. Yet they all took their fat pensions.

In times of crisis we ask so much of people who are meant to be leaders. This cringing shower were despicable.
