‘Stormin-Norman’ dead at 78.

Retired Gen. H. Norman Schwarzkopf, who topped an illustrious military career by commanding the U.S.-led international coalition that drove Saddam Hussein's forces out of Kuwait in 1991 but kept a low public profile in controversies over the second Gulf War against Iraq, died Thursday. He was 78.

Schwarzkopf died in Tampa, Florida, where he had lived in retirement, according to a U.S. official, who was not authorized to release the information publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.

Sadly, the General is the last of a dying breed... Men of honor, courage, and haters of being Politically Correct.

"You will be dearly missed General by a grateful nation."


Rest in peace - a great man.

This is so sad to see another great man die.  He was a leader and honorable.  Now we have Franks left and that's about it.  Honorable men with scruples and pride and a love for our country.  (unlike another general that is left and we know why he was chosen for govt. position, then he betrayed.  And this is not Petrais.)  Norman Olsson: you are so right.  Nice written piece.  Thank you Gen. Swarzkopf for your service and your belief in our country.

He was a great general, and a good man!
