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.

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.

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.

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.

General George S. Patton:

"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.

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.

I attended Comm School in 1965 at Keesler AFB in Biloxi Miss. My instructor for the subject, "Manholes and Telephone Poles" was a retired Air Force Master Seargeant who had enlisted in 1935. He was a Black sharecropper's son from Louisiana and had enlisted to help out the family by sending home money.

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.

Excellent.

Patton had a real pair of brass balls and told it like it was. Unfortunately the country has gone very soft from too much liberal media, liberal educators and a few liberal legislators who poison us with politically correct crap.

Kill the bas tards before they kill us.

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.''

That was the post I was responding to. He and I were thinking along the same lines.

Remember The Generals speech?

General George Patton has a few words to say to those dumb bastards
