When all hell broke loose liberating oil Kuwait I remember there was no other story shown on the news in SA. Anyone who didn't know CNN did soon enough. He wasn't the only bloke I knew by that name. Not long after the original came to be widely known the stock controller at the company I worked at whose name was Norman soon came to be known as Storeman Norman. There the similarity ended.

I've not read much about Stormin' Normin but the BBC said he got that name because of his explosive temper. I'm not sure how that translates into military-speak but someone suffering from "emotional detonation" in authority could well be known as an extreme bully elsewhere. I'm sure he had his good points and initiating the process by which Saddam was ultimately executed can't be a bad thing.

In time, I'll probably look for a book about him at my library.

They also say he was an outstanding commander and tactician and one of the old school. At 78, he was kind of young. RIP all the same.Rose | [Rose]
