The talk which Chief of Defence General Peter van Uhm gave late last year at TEDxAmsterdam has now been translated into several languages including Arabic, Japanese, Turkish and Persian.
The talk, in which he explains why he chose the gun as his instrument to contribute to a better world, has had nearly one million views. This week, Australian cadets watched the talk, which can be found on both TED.com and YouTube.com, in preparation for their meeting with the general. General Van Uhm is currently visiting Australia to discuss closer cooperation with regard to cyber warfare, submarines and the F-35.
