    WASHINGTON (AP) — A U.S. official says retired Gen. H. Norman Schwarzkopf, who commanded the U.S.-led international coalitionthat drove Saddam Hussein's forces out of Kuwait in 1991, has died. He was 78.
    The official tells The Associated Press that Schwarzkopf died Thursday in Tampa, Fla. The official wasn't authorized to release the information publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.
    A much-decorated combat soldier in Vietnam, Schwarzkopf was known popularly as "Stormin' Norman" for a notoriously explosive temper.
    He lived in retirement in Tampa, where he had served in his last military assignment as commander-in-chief of U.S. Central Command. That is the headquarters responsible for U.S. military and security concerns in nearly 20 countries from the eastern Mediterranean and Africa to Pakistan.

    Amen to that. He was a tremendous leader and served his country well.

    Daddy Bush should've let Stormin' Norman personally march in to Baghdad and put a bullet in Saddam's face. Would've prevented a lot of problems.

    RIP General Schwarzkopf
