Some German guy who died today. Apparently he's not important enough to talk about in history textbooks.

He was an American of German nationality, his accomplishments were too recent to make it into the history books, but they will in the future.
Report as
Oh, and he died yesterday, so you were wrong three times in one sentence.
Report as
Not really. I said he was a german dude. As you said, he has a German nationality. Either way, he's still a German from his nationality. And the part about him being in history textbooks. Well, he's not in there now, so I'm still right about that part. Him being in the books in the future (might I add you're not a psychic), definitely does not make me wrong. So I was only wrong one time in a sentence.
Report as
Btw, that was two sentences, not one.
Report as
He wasn't German, he was American of German DECENT, but you got one thing right, it was two sentences. You were wrong 3 times in one comment.
Report as
Actually, I would like to make that only one time. You're saying he was of German descent (Btw, you SPELLED THAT WRONG), either way it goes he was still German. I said SOME german guy. Some German means he has some German. Yes, I'm twisting what I just said, but hey either way I'm still right. So, that's once for me, and twice for you.

Apparently he's not important enough for some to look it up. An amazing (american) man in deed.

Send the troops before its too late
Saddam has invaded Kuwait
Grab your rifle and get a tan
You can scratch a rotation plan

President Bush was talking tough
We didnt like that war crap much
Thought Saddam was a man of reason
Now we got him for killing out of season

People are starting to understand
Saddam Husseins one crazy man
Gasses his people and tortures them too
Saddam, this Cluster Bombs for you!

BURNING OIL AND ACID RAIN,
SCUD MISSLES DESERT TERRAIN
THEY SHIPPED MY ASS STRAIGHT OVERSEAS
LOOK AROUND DONT SEE NO TREES!

1..23.AND 4
Sometimes to get peace, you
Gotta make some war
If we dont nuke them till they glow
Were going to die for more than Texaco

Stormin Norman made a plan
Now were going to kill whos in command
When were done kicking his ass
Well pay 25 cents for a gallon of gas.

This is my tale and it is true
Well call this cadence the Iraqui Blues
Saddam get stupid and I wont refuse
To put your ass on the 10 OClock news!
-That isn't how I heard it first verbatim but its close enough :)

I got to meet him once, when I was stationed at KFIA. He was pretty memorable; had this whole Capt. Kirk vibe about him... it was hard to hear over the sound of his awesome.

It really was. He definitely behaved like a leader, and I was proud to follow & serve with him.

Sorry I just now saw this answer, that must've been pretty cool!
Report as
It was. He had some serious Charisma.

It's hard to explain, but after 10 years, who gives a crap about a General, right? Not with him... It was like he was more of a rock star than brass. He definitely inspired. It was palpable.
