    Yep. To paraphrase Patton, we should not mourn these men but rejoice that such men lived.

    I'm personally ashamed that I've spent so much energy on another post and didn't think to make this post myself.

    The men and women of WWII, particularly those who fought and died stopping the Nazis and their allies, are the heroes of generations even yet still to come.

    To remind us all of the CURRENT world in which we live - Where Senators Kennedy and Kerry and Dean parade around pompous and full of shit...They'd be RIGHT on this, if DDay happened today:

    For the libs on this board who never tire of reciting the "talking points" about all the "mistakes and lack of planning" re the WOT, you should read the history of D-Day. Everything that could go wrong did go wrong; and when the Allied troops got on French soil, they were spit on and called vile names by the French people. (Quite an ungrateful lot, to say the least.) So keep the WOT in perspective. Even the best minds--and there were plenty of "best" military minds involved in planning the D-Day invasion--can't come up with an error-free war campaign.

    Maybe a few did. That VAST majority were more than happy to see the Allies....

    Revisionist history, Dr. Grump? I would say it was more like a FEW--not a vast majority--were more than happy to see the Allies.
