This time, however, the famous World War II general isn't urging his troops to defeat the Nazis on the eve of the Allied invasion of France this version features the voice of comedian Mike Kaminski delivering a Patton-like explanation of why the U.S. is fighting in Iraq, Afghanistan, against Al Qaeda, and the danger posed by an Iran possessing nuclear weapons.
