Why I chose a gun

This TED talk is compelling purely because of its content, but there's also something to the style of presentation that makes it peculiarly watchable, yet I can't put my finger on it.

The typical TED uniform is a business shirt and chinos, so is it the attire? It can't be the accent, because although that will sound peculiar to some it's completely familiar to me. Nor is the General charismatic in any conventional sense. And yet, it is a beautifully delivered presentation, and he has the audience in his grip. Do they teach this at Staff College?
