Gen. Norman Schwarzkopf, coalition forces
leader during Persian Gulf War, dies

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:FlyRight, 12/28/2012 6:30:09 AM

WASHINGTON – Truth is, retired Gen. H. Norman Schwarzkopf didn´t care much for his popular "Stormin´ Norman" nickname.The seemingly no-nonsense Desert Storm commander´s reputed temper with aides and subordinates supposedly earned him that rough-and-ready moniker. But others around the general, who died Thursday in Tampa, Fla., at age 78 from complications from pneumonia, knew him as a friendly, talkative and even jovial figure who preferred the somewhat milder sobriquet given by his troops: "The Bear."

I´ll take your word for the observation that this is a more informative obit. It makes a faint slam on Gulf War II and leaves out detail on the ´mine field´. I remember the story when it was mentioned to explain why the General took issue with a reporter who made light of Schwarzkopf sending troops into Kuwait over mine fields.

As I recall, Schwarzkopf was flying low in a helicopter from one point to another in Viet Nam when he spied troops pinned down in a rice paddy. He ordered the pilot to fly down and land to provide assistance (he had to do it; the pilot wanted to remain on course). Upon landing, he found that the problem was that the paddy had been mined. He immediately helped the soldier, wounded by mines, who couldn´t move under fire without risking mines.

Afterwards, Schwarzkopf noticed that he began to receive gracious treatment by black soldiers which puzzled him. When he asked the reason for the thaw, he was told that the soldier he rescued was black.

I understand he replied something to the tune of "Oh. I guess he was."

I could be mistaken, but I recall hearing that Gen. Norman Schwarzkopf´s father was the superintendent of the NJ State Police and was involved in the Lindbergh baby kidnapping case.

I served under him in the Gulf War, as well as worked on his CENTCOM aircraft at Robins. He and his wife were most gracious passengers-genuine and down to earth. When his wife would accompany him on mid-east visits, she always brought us home baked cookies for the aircrew and staff. May God grant Norman eternal peace.

Schwarzkopf was born Aug. 24, 1934, in Trenton, N.J., where his father, Col. H. Norman Schwarzkopf Jr., founder and commander of the New Jersey State Police, was then leading the investigation of the Lindbergh kidnap case, which ended with the arrest and 1936 execution of German-born carpenter Richard Hauptmann for stealing and murdering the famed aviator’s infant son.

Schwartzkopf was a major when he taught at West Point and was one of the better instructors... in fact, he was a genius! - he was able to teach me Solid Mechanics as a junior in 1967.

(for info - he didn´t teach "missile engineering - there was no such course there at that time.)

Back during his high command days, General Schwarzkopf used to have a large USAF command aircraft that he flew around the world on. He had a big seat in the plane that had a red colored backrest with four white stars on it. My daughter used to like to sit in that seat when the General was not around. I think she still has photographs of herself sitting there.

Another good General who just faded away!

I was an enlisted soldier back in the mid-80s stationed at Fort Lewis, WA. Gen. Schwarzkopf was I Corps Commander there. In May 1987, we had a ceremony in honor of the bi-centennial of the constitution. All the infantry brigades were in formation on the parade grounds and at the end of the ceremony, Schwarzkopf reviewed us standing in the back if his command Humvee. Years later, after the Gulf War, Parade Magazine interviewed him for a story and asked him what was his most memorable event during his service. He named that ceremony for the Constitution, which amazed me given all the combat he´d seen.

First came the “polar vortex” — now it’s the “pollen vortex.”Forced to lie dormant by the long, brutal winter, trees are now set to start reproducing like crazy — and create a massive amount of pollen that could wallop your sinuses this weekend. Pollen count in the Northeast will soar to “high levels” Saturday and Sunday, when warm temperatures will prompt plants to create the sniffle-inducing substance, reports Pollen.com, which offers allergy “forecasts.” In New York City, where the temps could hit 70 degrees Saturday, allergy symptoms will “become more severe,” the site says.

Two years before the Boston Marathon bombing, the Russian government concealed key information on one of the killers that might have thwarted the attack, a new report charges.Kremlin officials intercepted a phone conversation in which Tamerlan Tsarnaev discussed Islamic jihad with his mother, but they withheld the information from the FBI, according to the U.S. inspector general report that comes as the one-year anniversary of the bombing approaches. Had the FBI been privy to the red-flag phone call, it would have prompted the bureau to take an extensive look at Tsarnaev, according to The New York Times. “Had they known what the

Fears that high-speed traders have been rigging the U.S. stock market went mainstream last week thanks to allegations in a book by financial author Michael Lewis, but there may be a more serious threat to investors: the increasing amount of trading that happens outside of exchanges.Some former regulators and academics say so much trading is now happening away from exchanges that publicly quoted prices for stocks on exchanges may no longer properly reflect where the market is. And this problem could cost investors far more money than any shenanigans related to high frequency trading. When the average investor, or even

After his health-care law surpassed the low-ball enrollment target of 7 million, President Obama staged a Rose Garden rally and zinged doubters: “Armageddon has not arrived.” At least he did not declare: “Mission Accomplished.”The country is years from knowing whether Obama’s overhaul of the health-care system fulfills the promise of delivering universal coverage.While large numbers of Americans have found the program very advantageous, including people who were formerly uninsured, many others have been forced to change plans or change doctors — contrary to Obama’s repeated promises.Obama tacitly admits the unintended consequences every time he waives a deadline or mandate in

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators.

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle.

Under the administration of President Obama, as never before in my lifetime, there is reason to be a bit afraid of the federal government. I have written two books documenting Obama´s abuses of power, his assaults on the Constitution, his wars against business and energy, his abominably reckless spending, his divisiveness, his renegade Justice Department, his regulatory expansion, his executive orders, his overall lawlessness, and more. Obama´s conduct concerning Obamacare alone would be enough to get the impeachment wheels rolling for any other president. His flagrant, deliberate lies regarding almost every aspect of that

The deportation of foreigners living illegally in the United States is similar to the forced internment of ethnic-Japanese Americans in World War II, according to Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi. “I’ll be very honest with you: Looking at the numbers at some point, in terms of how people are treated and deported and families separated and the rest, this has a scent of Japanese internment,” Pelosi told a Politico reporter. “It’s really a black mark,” said Pelosi. Roughly 110,000 ethnic-Japanese immigrants and their American children were detained during World War II after Japan’s sneak attack on Americans in Pearl Harbor. Pelosi also urged Obama
