    Default RIP General Norman Schwarzkopf

    Local news just had a blip that the bulldog general of Desert Storm has died. No other confirmation or details yet. If true, RIP to one of the last old school warriors.

    He was, by many accounts a great leader, and I recall him being quite comfortable in front of the camera, leading media briefings and explaining where exactly guided missles were striking in Iraq.

    One of the most overrated commanders in modern military history.

    I also find it utterly hilarious that "Schwarzkopf's blitzkrieg" is a line that's being used in his FAVOR in the obituaries. There's a bunch of other German commanders that did the same things. We thankfully don't remember them as fondly.

    Rommel was a hell of a tactician.

    Pretty sure I could coach Shaquille O'Neal to beat Verne Troyer in a jabbing contest.

    I agree, I think he was in the right place at the right time.
