Deadpool Update: General Norman Schwartzkopf

Norman Schwarzkopf Obit2

From Fox News:

Schwarzkopf was named commander in chief of U.S. Central Command at Tampa’s MacDill Air Force Base in 1988, overseeing the headquarters for U.S. military and security concerns in nearly two dozen countries stretching across the Middle East to Afghanistan and the rest of central Asia, plus Pakistan.

When Saddam invaded Kuwait two years later to punish it for allegedly stealing Iraqi oil reserves, Schwarzkopf commanded Operation Desert Storm, the coalition of some 30 countries organized by President George H.W. Bush that succeeded in driving the Iraqis out.

He will always be “The Bear” to us. Godspeed, kind sir.

NOTE: The General was not on anyone’s list but he’s certainly deserving of the honor of a post.

    I wish he’d made a run for president at some point. Can you imagine John McCain trying to badmouth him during a candy date debate? That would have been the sort of comedy that renders everything else “meh”.

    Sad day in any case. The man did a lot of good for a lot of people. Could have done more if he hadn’t been reined in. Godspeed, Sir.

    I have my own opinions about Stormin Norman. Having read his works and studied his operations.

    He definitely will be missed. RIP, General….

    That’s General, Sir Norman to you lot. A soldier first, and also a Knight. He belonged to one of the Principal Orders not debased by lefty trash activists.
