    Norman Schwartz cop in general is dead

    A U.S. official says retired Gen. H. Norman Schwarzkopf, who commanded the U.S.-led international coalition that drove Saddam Hussein's forces out of Kuwait in 1991, has died. He was 78.
    The official tells The Associated Press that Schwarzkopf died Thursday in Tampa, Fla. The official wasn't authorized to release the information publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.

    he also saved many lives, pentagon sources put the number of dead USA military to be around 30,000

    his "left hook" approach in iraq was credited with keeping causulties down in the low 100's

    "As far as Saddam Hussein being a great military strategist, he is neither a strategist, nor is he schooled in the operational arts, nor is he a tactician, nor is he a general, nor is he a soldier. Other than that, he's a great military man, I want you to know that."

    I watched the news reports back in '91 when the briefings of the happenings on the battle field were presented by the General it was so low tech.

    "A professional soldier understands that war means killing people, war means maiming people, war means families left without fathers and mothers. All you have to do is hold your first dying soldier in your arms, and have that terribly futile feeling that his life is flowing out and you can’t do anything about it. Then you understand the horror of war.
    Any soldier worth his salt should be antiwar. And still there are things worth fighting for."
