According to my local news site (The Boston Globe), Desert Storm Commander Schwarzkopf has passed away.

General H. Norman Schwarzkopf, who commanded the US-led international coalition that drove Saddam Hussein’s forces out of Kuwait in 1991, has died in Tampa, an official said.

On topic: Sad, I didn’t know him, but still, war heroes die. At least he was retired and home with family, and it wasn’t on a battlefield that he lost his life.

Here’s a quote from him apparently:
“I hate war. Absolutely, I hate war … good generalship is a realization that … you’ve got to try and figure out how to accomplish your mission with a minimum loss of human life.”
Sounds like a nice, level headed gentleman.
