The Luckiest Man in Iraq - Rare Flir Footage

1991 Gulf War briefing by General Norman Schwarzkoph showing us the luckiest man in Iraq.

I remember watching this very briefing (Live) with my grandpa before he died,we laughed our ass off.

Alot of people have not seen this,i encourage all to take a look,it was one of the best moments of Desert Storm that i remember on TV.

Good times,RIP James Harold Burkett.

  • This one takes me back!

    I had an unfiltered Camel cigarette in my hand and a cold beer in the other when I first saw this on CNN. Laughed my ass off as well. Good post for my keen sense of nostalgia. Thanks for posting.

  • Cool video but everyone after the event said the driver died from the shockwave of the blast , so i guess he wasnt that lucky after all

  • Asshole. One thing is waging war and another is mocking someone from the enemy country. That is not what a real warrior does. Pure arrogance.

    • @mcgus The guy is a combat veteran with a Silver Star for bravery in combat. I'd say that is a "real warrior", as opposed to a keyboard warrior such as yourself.
      I guess when you are on the bottom looking up at giants, you are compelled to say things like that.
      It has got to suck to be mexican huh?

      No, what has to suck is to be as ignorant as you, for calling me a Mexican.

      I remember that war very well. This man was bragging all the time, he reminded me of Montgomery in WWII. A great warrior they had to build up an enormous force for months to beat a shitty army. Even an armchair general like me would have won that war.

      And as for TV images and PR, I also remember that war for images of the birds full of oil that we were led to believe were from the Gulf war, but i More..

    • @mcgus I apologize for calling you a mexican. Thats a low blow, even coming from me.
      Although, we seemed to have found a subject we can agree on.
      Know what? The American people were lied to by self serving politicians. This thing about sending our kids over to hut dweller land to get them killed is really wearing thin on me.
      In other words, I am sick of seeing our service members over there as much as you are. It is getting embarassing.

    • @mcgus I'd have to agree highly inappropriate. I don't know how I would feel if I was driving down to San Diego and a guided munition explodes behind me, but I don't think I'd be appreciative of somebody 8,000 miles away laughing about it.

  • Ever wonder why Bush senior called the plug on that operation when the troops were about to enter Baghdad?

    America is being deceived.
