My sister in-law sent me that a couple of days ago. I think it would look good on billboards along the high-way.

We will give these people their "just reward". As an Air Force General said during Desert Storm. It is time to put some hate in your heart, and go get these guys.

Not a flame, but why does everyone consider John Wayne a hero. He filed an for an exemption from WWII so he would not have to leave his family and his budding film career. Many guys left families behind in order to serve. He was not rejected for a football injury as some like to claim. Don't misunderstand. I like him and watch all his movies when I get a chance, but he was an actor, not a hero.

Colt Shorty, You say there is no one like Patton. But what you fail to realize is American Land Combat doctrine since at least 1980 has used Pattons idea's. Overwhelming Force, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Combined Arms(Air Land Sea), shock, speed, Manuever, Firepower. That is why you saw the Heavy Tank Divisions in Iraq charge 400 miles in 3 days. Fearsome. Firing on the Move. And the Technologies make todays Tank Divisions 100 times more powerful then in the 40's. Patton could have wiped out most of Europe with a Tank Heavy Division of M1A2 with support&logistics. There would have been nowhere for the Nazi's to hide, Computers,Thermal Sights, Traditional Optics, Night Vision. It would have been a Massacre. Plus the Chobham Armour of the US M1 MBT would probably Defeat everything up to 120 MM 1940's vintage Shells. I have seen them fire a 120MM Shell at 25 yards directly into the Frontal Amour of the M1. HUGE EXPLOSION and you see the SHELL, COMPLETELY FLATTENED, FALL OFF THE TANK. ONLY LEFT A BLACK MARK ON THE FRONT OF THE TANK. Incredible. Benjamin
