    Default Norman Schwarzkopf has died

    General Norman Swartzkoff has died. I know there are loads that will be heartbroken. He masterminded the US invasion into Kuwait and drove Iraqi forces from Kuwait.

    Can I ask a MOD to be so kind to correct the spelling in the title of the OP to "SCHWARZKOPF". Thanks

    The West had no place out there.

    Remember when I was 12 in school and the tabloids had pull outs of all the weapons the yanks had, and the mythical supergun Saddam had.

    Coincidental that Stormin Norman would die at the same time as Bush Snr appears to be in a bad way. 22 years ago is a long time...
