Breaking .. Gen. Norman Schwarzkopf has died.

Discussion in 'The ARRSE Hole' started by AIR FILTER, Dec 28, 2012.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Fox News reporting that Gen. Norman Schwarzkopf, coalition forces leader during Persian Gulf War has died.
    Reports still coming in.

    RIP to this true leader of men.
     
  2. Crikey. He wasn't on the list.
     
  3. In a pure coincidence, I was you-tubing this morning and I ended up watching the post Gulf War Schwarzkopf media conference which I haven't see since the war ended, five minutes later I tuned on the news and the 1st item I saw was that he had died. Weird.

    RIP General.

    As Generals go, he was one of the best. Fearless, full of character and not afraid to deal with the task in hand, which at the time was to wage full scale war which had not been done on such a scale for decades. Mission accomplished when the last Iraqi boot was out of Kuwait. Nothing more or less.

  6. Hopefully it wasn't because of all the NAPS that a lot still suffer from.
     
  7. You really are a little ray of sunshine, aren't you. An 18-month-old thread?
     
  8. Any update on his condition?
