Also, if T-Joe had half a brain, and I think he does, any favor he would give Tech in return would have to be contingent on us getting into Conference USA. Without a contingency, we have no idea if tech will even vote for us, much less lobby for us. But with the contingency we know that tech will be on our side lobbying hard for us.
Not the best comparison, Boomer.
-Well perhaps many at the US Military Academy don't share your thoughts
As inspiring of a man that one can imagine --"Duty , Honor, Country---old soldiers never die they just fade away!!!--At the Tulane HC football game the cadets ran out to a sign by McArthur about a dangerous mission and that he needed 2 West Point Football players---We will agree to disagree---And BTW his landing in N Korea was as brilliant of a military strategic move as seen in war!!! Yea we will disagree!!! Oh and we did win WW2 when he returned!!!
His strategy to return to the Philippines was purely for personal glory. It was not strategically necessary as Japan was defeated by then. Ninth wanted to bypass the Phillipenes as it wasn't necessary strategically. But Mc Arthur overruled him. And in order to take the Philipenes he decided that Peleliu had to be taken to secure his flank. Over 1,500 Marines were killed and over 6,600 were wounded in what was essentially an unessecary battle.
It was no accident that McArthur's staff was made up of yes men and former Hollywood PR men.it was also McArthur who suspended many of the war crimes trials for Jap military who had murderin red allied POWs. He also disregarded intel about the Chinese and their response if he continued to push to their border resulting in their entry into the war and the loss of all the gains we had made. Yes, he gave a great speech at West Point after Truman sacked him for insubordination in Korea but does he's alone do not make a great general. He is overrated.
Friday morning bump.
Well I do not know enough about McArthur being all this or all that, but unlike McArthur being sacked by the president t-jo will never be sacked for telling Bruno and Tabby we are Louisiana period. IMO t-jo is more like the French Vichy government.
Maybe one of those guys could get us out of this stinkin' conference?
talk about thread drift..LMAO
