N Schwartzkopf
Is a particularly admirable man. I wonder who was pushing him to "precipitous" action, early, in Iraq, during the first Gulf War. In his book, It Doesn't Take A Hero, and during the c-span booknotes interview following, he talked about officials in the administration of GHW Bush (the most decent Republican President since DD Eisenhower), who were pushing him to take drastic and immediate action, before the military was ready, in a way that lacked any military sense. I am guessing it is the same nutjobs that ran the Iraq war.
