    World War II is technically not over! Because they still dispute ownership of the Kuril Islands, Japan and Russia never formally signed a peace treaty.

    Patton's saw the world for what it is... right and wrong. He was completely uncompromising and that is why he was successful.

    I was a young 19 y/o Marine when I got to SKorea. As we were hiking up what seemed like endless mountains I found a new appreciation for the men who were faught there in the 1950s. Then we finished and had liberty, I told the taxi driver ba-Lee ba-Lee and held on for my life.
