    May General Schwarzkopf rest in peace. IMO, he was probably the nation's finest post-WW II general and ranks among the all-time greats.

    Don't be too harsh on him. For one, it was pretty recent. For another, it was very short. For a third, it wasn't all that sexy of a war.

    The Desert Shield and Desert Storm is one of those forgotten wars that we've forgotten because of how quickly it went, much to the dismay of those military men who fought in it. After all, the only major mainstream depictions of the Gulf War are the films "Jarhead" and "Three Kings," and those aren't entirely celebratory of the conflict.

    Personally, I think the Cold War is another one. I seriously doubt that most people could name a flag officer from the Cold War, and especially so if you take out those who also served in World War II.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    Any person who regularly contributes to a politics board, particularly one who comments about American politics, and has a line of pictures of historically important socialists as part of his signature, and who has started and commented on numerous threads about George W. Bush's Iraq war, but claims ignorance of the general who led the first American Iraq invasion force is either A) being disingenuous because he's trying to be insulting or B) is ignorant of pretty basic history of a subject about which he is unduly opinionated.
    The morality of abortion is not a religious belief, any more than the morality of slavery, apartheid, rape, larceny, murder or arson is a religious belief. These are norms of the natural law of mankind and can be legislated even in a completely religionless society.

    SchartzKopf is the unsung general of many a military conflict. He wasn't the hero who prevails against impossible odds, rather he took all the massive advantages in his favor and used to them to win with a minimal loss of life. I really wish that we'd glamorize generals like him who were good at not screwing up rather than the kind who were lucky enough to pull off hail marys.

    1) Socialism has little to do with this issue.

    2) If we want to discuss the Iraq War, yes, the Gulf War was a precursor to it. However, the Iran-Iraq War was a precursor to the Gulf War, and 99% of Americans don't even know there was one, let alone that the U.S. supported Iraq during that conflict, despite the Iraqis firing on the USS Stark. But that does not stop those ignorant of the Iran-Iraq War from being opinionated on the Iraq War, or even the Persian Gulf War.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.
