You have no idea what you're talking about, do you know that? Did you even read Gen. Schwarzkopf's book on the Gulf war? How Powell's support in so many areas crucial to the operation, including working with the Saudis' seemingly unreasonable conditions placed on American and allied troops?One of the smartest move Bush-41 did was making Gen. Colon Powell the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff which is nothing more than an advisory job. And he chose Gen. Schwarzkopf as his combat field commander. If Powell had been the field commander I seriously doubt the Persian Gulf War would have turned out as well as it did.
And what is this remark?..."One of the smartest move Bush-41 did was making Gen. Colon Powell the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff which is nothing more than an advisory job". One would think you were intimately linked to the Pentagon and White House chain of command. Can you give a few examples...no, never mind, just ONE example to confirm what you wrote about "advisory". Remember, Rogue, the Joint chief of staff and the president do not decide if a patrol should go out to scout the enemy. That's decided by a sergeant or lieutenant, as it should be.
