Before the commencement of Operation Overlord.
Somewhere in England
|"Men, this stuff that some sources sling around about America wanting out of this war, not wanting to fight, is a crock of bullshit. Americans love to fight, traditionally. All real Americans love the sting and clash of battle. You are here today for three reasons. First, because you are here to defend your homes and your loved ones. Second, you are here for your own self respect, because you would not want to be anywhere else. Third, you are here because you are real men and all real men like to fight. When you, here, everyone of you, were kids, you all admired the champion marble player, the fastest runner, the toughest boxer, the big league ball players, and the All-American football players. Americans love a winner. Americans will not tolerate a loser. Americans despise cowards. Americans play to win all of the time. I wouldn't give a hoot in hell for a man who lost and laughed. That's why Americans have never lost nor will ever lose a war; for the very idea of losing is hateful to an American."

Incredible! George S Patton's Updated New Speech-Iraq & Modern World
by Mike Kaminski, professional Voice talent/Actor/Producer and Standup Comedian.
Hehehe. Always a good read. I have the theme music from the Patton movie and play it while driving.
Your FR link took me to dancing skunks link above first!
Nobody here cares, anymore. During a time when FR is struggling to make it’s numbers, each day is filled with five threads, repeated over and over. Wasting valuable bandwidth. Contrary to popular belief, the search function here, works very well.
Again, nobody cares.
Badgering posters doesn't seem to help, either.
I agree. That was an outstanding presentation of the updated Patton speech. I’m emailing the link to all my friends.
At least we know the difference between a skunk and a badger...
Hey..had a stripe!!
and was a cartoon.
Was looking for FR
and got dancing “critters”.
I rest my case!! :)
Weak, this is a good link, and very entertaining, who is even going to know that it exists if the only response you have is
“Shut up, use the search function”
I certainly “do care” and ponied up Dorm mom, now if you don’t mind adults would like to enjoy the thread.
Shut up, use the search function
Never put quotes around something I never said.
Kill off the "GD" cowards and we will have a nation of brave men.
We don't want yellow cowards in this Army. They should be killed off like rats. If not, they will go home after this war and breed more cowards. The brave men will breed more brave men.
We have the finest food, the finest equipment, the best spirit, and the best men in the world. Why, by God, I actually pity those poor sons-of-bitches we're going up against. By God, I do.
Even if you are hit, you can still fight back. That's not just bull $#!^ either.
One of the bravest men that I ever saw was a fellow on top of a telegraph pole in the midst of a furious fire fight in Tunisia. I stopped and asked what the hell he was doing up there at a time like that. He answered, "Fixing the wire, Sir". I asked, "Isn't that a little unhealthy right about now?" He answered, "Yes Sir, but the "GD" wire has to be fixed". I asked, "Don't those planes strafing the road bother you?" And he answered, "No, Sir, but you sure as hell do!" Now, there was a real man. A real soldier.
Don't forget, you men don't know that I'm here. No mention of that fact is to be made in any letters. The world is not supposed to know what the hell happened to me. I'm not supposed to be commanding this Army. I'm not even supposed to be here in England. Let the first bastards to find out be the "GD" Germans. Some day I want to see them raise up on their piss-soaked hind legs and howl, '"JC", it's the "GD" Third Army again and that son-of-a-bleeping-bleep Patton'."
There is one great thing that you men will all be able to say after this war is over and you are home once again. You may be thankful that twenty years from now when you are sitting by the fireplace with your grandson on your knee and he asks you what you did in the great World War II, you WON'T have to cough, shift him to the other knee and say, "Well, your Granddaddy shoveled shit in Louisiana." No, Sir, you can look him straight in the eye and say, "Son, your Granddaddy rode with the Great Third Army and a Son-of-a-Goddamned-Bitch named Georgie Patton!
And I liked a lot more but this is my favorite:
The bilious bastards who write that kind of stuff for the Saturday Evening Post don't know any more about real fighting under fire than they know about f^@%in'!
And to be fair, the things that I didn't like:
“Still an asshole.”
The bilious bastards who write that kind of stuff for the NEWSWEEK don't know any more about real fighting under fire than they know about f^@%in'!
Or CNN, that video was spot on, I loved the part about “Unless their Xbox power supply is unplugged and half a million people die”.
