A message from the ghost of General George S. Patton.
That's a keeper. The GOP should run that a few times in a small market. It is so powereful, it would gets lots of free replays in major markets.
That is great!
"God Bless America...and death to all her enemies".
TERRIFIC!!! THANKS from the ghost of my Rainbow Division Grandfather!!!
Bump so I can watch it later at home.
Allah (click-click)) ak-ba?? (BOOM!!!)
Send us a postcard!!
It would be better if it had pictures of the REAL George S., not George C. playing George S.
It's not like pictures of the real general are hard to get.
Most excellent! "Why We Fight!"
Absolutely great site and so true!
The theme song from Patton always gives me chills. It was the unofficial fight song of my college alma mater too. Thanks!
"A good plan executed today is better than a perfect plan executed at some indefinite point in the future."
One of my favorite quotes.
Old Blood and Guts would have had Iraq running perfectly 2 years ago and would have the New Iraqi Army ready to fight Iran and Syria.
Good find Farmer.
As much as I admire General Patton, I would have to say that his excellence was most admirably demonstrated on the field of battle and not behind a desk.
we need him , or someone after his pattern now.
We need the C&C to have the wisdom to stand back and have such a military leader , or leaders, do their thing accordingly.
"There is only one tactical principal which is not subject to change. It is to use the means at hand to inflict the maximum amount of wounds, death, and destruction in the minimum amount of time."
"The object of war is not to die for your country, but to make the other bastard die for his."
That is because he was a Real Man not an administrator, and definitely not a yes man.
Thanks to the poster for this most excellent clip!!
Should be rated G for conservatives...XXX for liberals!
Bavaria was the only region of Germany that had its power, water and sewer infrastructure restored within four months of the surrender. He had the lowest starvation death toll, and no looting.
Not bad for a warhorse.
He was prescient about the Russians, and had Ike followed his plan, the frontier of Russia would have started East of Poland somewhere.
I considered saying that if Patton was in charge in Iraq, that once he got to Baghdad, he would have then set his sites on Tehran.
Love it! Thank you oldbluejacket!
He was high school educated, (his Mom had insisted all her children be book learned!) but the Army recruiter was really excited that this young recruit had mule team experience. So they assigned him to communications school. He didn't have a clue why mules = communications until he learned that the method of laying field wire was a cradle on the back of a mule.
He graduated comm school and was assigned a field unit in Louisiana where he spent several years with the cavalry, chasing this crazing Brigadier by the name of Patton. Patton was refining his tank maneuvering tactics and the comm unit would soon replace those mules with jeeps.
I can assure you that whenever we had breaks we would draw out many war stories from this old soldier! He particularly liked President Truman because in 1948 truman ordered that the military be integrated and that promotions would be fair and equitable.
Exactly correct, or Syria.
The problem with Iran is that most of the people can't stand the current government. Not exactly true in Syria. An army can literally pass through Syria like 'crap through a goose' as Patton would say and you really aren't hurting many friendlies.
In Iran, you certainly would. An invasion of Iran would take a tremendous amount of covert work to do successfully and have the right people on your side. Not so with Syria, I would suspect.
To paraphrase Patton -
''I'd rather have Jihadis in front of me than Democrats behind me.''
See post 25.
...and we wouldn't have known it until it was a fait accompli...
My favorite quote: "May God have mercy on my enemies as I won't" & the second best: "God help me, I do love it so. I love it more than my life!"(War)
Yes, because he would have kept Saddam's guys in place.
That was the post I was responding to. He and I were thinking along the same lines.
That's great. My youngest son tried to use that last quote in his High School Year Book. They allowed it by printing B_____</p>
This more touching and fun to listen to.
Remember The Generals speech?
General George Patton has a few words to say to those dumb bastards
