A while back, a friend of mine had a blog named What Would Patton Do? That's an interesting question when you think about it. What would Patton do about 9/11? Terrorism? Iraq? Immigration? Cindy Sheehan?
Maybe this clip can shed some light on the topic.
While watching Patton one thing will become quite clear to the viewer, (especially those who are not familiar with his career) he loved war...a lot. The quote below from General Omar N. Bradley, played by actor Karl Malden, summed it up best in the feature.
Patton might have been a nutjob...but he was OUR nutjob!
There's one big difference between you and me, George. I do this job because I've been trained to do it. You do it because you LOVE it.
