So sad!

Retired General Norman Schwarzkopf passed away in Tampa Thursday at the age of 78.

Known as "Stormin' Norman" Schwarzkopf commanded the U.S. forces that helped free Kuwait of Saddam Hussein's occupation during the Gulf War in the early 1990s.

Norman survived combat in Vietnam, and the war in the Middle East but tragically couldn't win his battle with prostate cancer.

Our hearts go out to General Schwarzkopf's family!

He was an American hero, and that is how history will remember him!

    shelly,you're ingnorant ass.

    A great general that lead UN forces to stop the Iraqi invasion of Syria. A man that saved millions of lives and created a plan that lead to the least amount of casualties in any war in the 20th century.

    a great man

    Sad, I do not understand why/how ANYONE dies from prostate cancer. A very simple blood test and/or digital exam finds it easily and early. I quess if you ignore the tests then it can catch up with you, but your doctor should be insisting upon it as soon as you hit 40-50 years old. I had it, found when I was about 55, simple implantation of 105 radioactive seeds directly into the prostate and I'm good to go. If you have to have any cancer, this is clearly the one to choose. Simple to find, simple to treat. All you men reading,,, get yourself checked ,, at least get a PSA blood screen.

    Hummm he stopped Iraq from invading Syria… maybe that wouldnt have been such a bad thing lol. Saddam was probably the only one who would have kept those maniacs in check! He was the only person in the middle east anyone was afraid of till us big dummies came along and ruined that!!! Way to go Bush's….

    Re: MVPnis – Yea, the UN is terrible.. totally irrelevant. Fucking moron. Were not the police of the world. May I ask you why we did nothing in Darfur? Why are we not storming into other African nations helping where their government is slaughtering their people? Why are we not invading North Korea as we speak?! Ahhh, yes. They have nothing of value to us. If there was Oil or hot white chicks running around Africa we'd be there in a heart beat and you know it. All of that would have worked itself out. We had no business being involved just as we had no business lying our way into Iraq the second time. Remember "weapons of mass destruction?" I hope ur at least completely outraged at the Bush administration for lying their way into that war… are you not?

    Re: SteveIsHot

    Yeah its irrelevant until you argue against the second Iraq war……………..

    ignorant hypocrite.

    Re: SteveIsHot

    Bush lied????? strange, he only listened to democrats that voted for the war

    "One way or the other, we are determined to deny Iraq the capacity to develop weapons of mass destruction and the missiles to deliver them. That is our bottom line."
    –President Bill Clinton, Feb. 4, 1998

    "If Saddam rejects peace and we have to use force, our purpose is clear. We want to seriously diminish the threat posed by Iraq's weapons of mass destruction program."
    –President Bill Clinton, Feb. 17, 1998

    "Iraq is a long way from [here], but what happens there matters a great deal here. For the risks that the leaders of a rogue state will use nuclear, chemical or biological weapons against us or our allies is the greatest security threat we face."
    –Madeline Albright, Feb 18, 1998



  15. 15

    "He will use those weapons of mass destruction again, as he has ten times since 1983."
    –Sandy Berger, Clinton National Security Adviser, Feb, 18, 1998

    "[W]e urge you, after consulting with Congress, and consistent with the U.S. Constitution and laws, to take necessary actions (including, if appropriate, air and missile strikes on suspect Iraqi sites) to respond effectively to the threat posed by Iraq's refusal to end its weapons of mass destruction programs."
    Letter to President Clinton, signed by:
    – Democratic Senators Carl Levin, Tom Daschle, John Kerry, and others, Oct. 9, 1998

    "Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technology which is a threat to countries in the region and he has made a mockery of the weapons inspection process."
    -Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D, CA), Dec. 16, 1998

    "Hussein has … chosen to spend his money on building weapons of mass destruction and palaces for his cronies."
    – Madeline Albright, Clinton Secretary of State, Nov. 10, 1999



  16. 16

    "There is no doubt that … Saddam Hussein has reinvigorated his weapons programs. Reports indicate that biological, chemical and nuclear programs continue apace and may be back to pre-Gulf War status. In addition, Saddam continues to redefine delivery systems and is doubtless using the cover of a licit missile program to develop longer-range missiles that will threaten the United States and our allies."
    Letter to President Bush, Signed by:
    – Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL), and others, Dec 5, 2001

    "We begin with the common belief that Saddam Hussein is a tyrant and a threat to the peace and stability of the region. He has ignored the mandate of the United Nations and is building weapons of mass destruction and th! e means of delivering them."
    – Sen. Carl Levin (D, MI), Sept. 19, 2002

    "We know that he has stored secret supplies of biological and chemical weapons throughout his country."
    – Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002

    "Iraq's search for weapons of mass destruction has proven impossible to deter and we should assume that it will continue for as long as Saddam is in power."
    – Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002

    "We have known for many years that Saddam Hussein is seeking and developing weapons of mass destruction."
    – Sen. Ted Kennedy (D, MA), Sept. 27, 2002

    "The last UN weapons inspectors left Iraq in October of 1998. We are confident that Saddam Hussein retains some stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons, and that he has since embarked on a crash course to build up his chemical and biological warfare capabilities. Intelligence reports indicate that he is seeking nuclear weapons…"
    – Sen. Robert Byrd (D, WV), Oct. 3, 2002

    "I will be voting to give the President of the United States the authority to use force — if necessary — to disarm Saddam Hussein because I believe that a deadly arsenal of weapons of mass destruction in his hands is a real and grave threat to our security."
    – Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Oct. 9, 2002

    "There is unmistakable evidence that Saddam Hussein is working aggressively to develop nuclear weapons and will likely have nuclear weapons within the next five years … We also should remember we have always underestimated the progress Saddam has made in development of weapons of mass destruction."
    – Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D, WV), Oct 10, 2002

    "He has systematically violated, over the course of the past 11 years, every significant UN resolution that has demanded that he disarm and destroy his chemical and biological weapons, and any nuclear capacity. This he has refused to do"
    – Rep. Henry Waxman (D, CA), Oct. 10, 2002



  18. 18

    "In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weapons stock, his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program. He has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including al Qaeda members … It is clear, however, that if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare, and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons."
    – Sen. Hillary Clinton (D, NY), Oct 10, 2002

    "We are in possession of what I think to be compelling evidence that Saddam Hussein has, and has had for a number of years, a developing capacity for the production and storage of weapons of mass destruction."
    – Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL), Dec. 8, 2002

    "Without question, we need to disarm Saddam Hussein. He is a brutal, murderous dictator, leading an oppressive regime … He presents a particularly grievous threat because he is so consistently prone to miscalculation … And now he is miscalculating America's response to his continued deceit and his consistent grasp for weapons of mass destruction … So the threat of Saddam Hussein with weapons of mass destruction is real…"
    – Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Jan. 23. 2003

    Re: MVPnis – Yup, too bad it was under Bushy boy's watch and Bushy boy's little men who broke out the "satellite images" saying well this is where they are!!! We know it! We HAVE TO GO IN! Why did the UN (The UN is NOT irreverent, the UN is awesome BTW I was making fun of you u fucking moron) inspectors who are highly trained say uhh, there are no weapons here? Then were smeared to all hell. The UN used to regarded as friends until this happened. Remember? This all coming together for you? Lies, misleading? And yes, you did a wonderful job pulling some quotes. But the bottom line, the Bush administration did whatever it took and falsified whatever information it had to to get in there. It just happened to help that people had been talking about this for a few years prior. But at the end of the day, they were WRONG! Major fuck up to go to war over, riiiiiiiiiiiight?

    Re: SteveIsHot

    Bush lied??? did you see they quotes? of course you did, but you only believe what you want to believe, they call it brainwashed



  22. 22

    RIP, Stormin Norman. You really were the greatest General!



  23. 23

    Re: MVPnis – Did you hear what IIIII said? There were rumblings of Saddam having Weapons for years. UN inspectors were sent in, nothing was found. Bush administration still pushed along with the war…. Now, why would they do that? Dem's who were for the war now know it was a huge mistake. Most republicans too. Well, most reasonable ones that is. Oh, so much for ur response on why we arent doing anything in Africa. Talk about being brain washed…. Ur siding with people who would gladly throw you in the line of fire and not think twice if they knew it would line their own pockets with a little green. Iraq… ppffffftttt… so many other countries we could have really helped and we fucking blew billions and thousands of lives so Bushy boy could finish blowing the load his dad never was able to. Fucking worst blotch on American history.
