    Well know to many previously killed people?

    I remember Desert Storm. I was working as an operator on the very-early-morning shift. We had a TV in the control-room and watched the CNN footage with amazement. That was a “good” war, it was against an aggressor that had taken over an innocent country, it was quick, it was clean, it was supported by the UN and we were all cheering for the U.S. troops. They should have kicked/killed Saddam back then, but didn’t, never understood why. Would have saved the world – and the U.S. – a lot of trouble…

    Rest in Peace, General Schwarzkopf!

    I would not want to have a general’s responsibility. This man turned down political ambitions, wiki says, – “In retirement, Schwarzkopf served as a military analyst for NBC, most recently for Operation Iraqi Freedom, along with promoting prostate cancer awareness, a disease with which he was diagnosed in 1993, and for which he was successfully treated. Schwarzkopf donated most of his time to multiple charities, and community activities. He sat on the board for Remington, and several other high-profile corporations.” The last bothered me a bit. I would be sad to think he became a lobbyist, however, he served his nation and imperfect as all mankind is, he was better than most.
    Respectfully,
    C.

    General Schwarzkopf wanted to chase Saddam right back to Baghdad, but he was cut short by the politicians. Unfortunately the best generals tend to be the most politically incorrect.

    … R.I.P. from me, too. He was one of the “good guys” and should have been listened to.

    Colin Powell, also comes to mind.

    True. Over-long wars, though, do lessen (or lesson) us all.

    Actually, IIRC the early 1990s was when Corporate America woke up to the fact that military officers frequently have the type of leadership training and experience that CEOs were paying obscene sums of money to send their people away to training for.

    Some of you who are denigrating General Schwarzkopf, good for you. Ever been in the military, ever been in a war, ever been a leader during conflict?

    His dad was known for being the guy who railroaded/framed Bruno Hauptmann for the LIndbergh kidnapping.


    Yes, I’ve been in the military, and while enlisted, still had command authority, and made decisions that risked men’s lives. I’ve had a pretty low regard for much of our General staff, for a long time.


    Sorry, but I would favor Shinseki over Schartzkopf, or Powell. The problem is that our military has become far too populated by the “politicians”, rather than tacticians. We need to get rid of 30-40 of our field grades and generals especially.
