Gen Abazaid….

It’s amazing the factoids that one comes across while reading.  There was always something familiar about Gen Abazaid, but I could never remember what it was…

He was the Ranger officer who parachuted with his men into Grenada and then had one of his men drive a bulldozer toward the Cuban troops, as he advanced behind it.

They called him the Mad Arab.

Sounds like he was pretty well liked by people who served under him.

    What does Beetle Bailey say about it? Idiots get news from cartoons.

    It is hard for me to imagine anyone in the military NOT suffering from PTSD. In fact, basic training for the military includes a conditioned form of PTSD. They call it “getting ready for battle”.
