General Normal Schwarzkopf tribute

Quote My favorite memory was when he was giving the 11pm nightly update during the Gulf War and he showed the video of them blowing up a bridge right when one of the Iraqi jeeps had crossed it. He introduced the video by saying “here is one of the luckiest enemies alive”…. then after a few minutes he said (paraphrasing) “imagine the look on his face when the whole damn bridge blew up in his rear view mirror”…. It made me chuckle because part of the General was pissed the guy was lucky, and part of him saw the ironic humor in how well his guys were kicking the crap out of the bad guys.
