Lightbulb General Norman Schwartzkopf quote

Every now and then it takes a true military mind to come up with a classic quote..

In a recent interview, General Norman Schwartzkopf was asked if he thought there was room for forgiveness toward the people who have harboured and abetted the terrorists who perpetrated the 9/11 attacks on America.

His answer:

"I believe that forgiving them is God's function.
Our job is simply to arrange the meeting"

He'd have already done his share of "arranging meetings" when he was CO of Op. Desert Storm.

Another quote that I love from Stormin' Norman is his reponse to being asked:

"How do you battle an enemy who is willing to and not afraid to die for their cause?"

"Accomodate them."

Damn straight!

I found out that this is an old US marine saying not his originally.
