General Tommy Franks quote
http://www.keepmedia.com/pubs/Esquire/2006/01/01/1108327?extID=10026 ^

Finally, actress Alyssa Milano: "I went to Iraq on a USO tour. This was two months after the war was declared over. When we got on the ground, they started throwing us helmets and bulletproof vests. I'm wearing a little Prada shirt, you know. I wanted to look good for the boys. Basically, I was doing my service to the country. And so I put this vest on, which was about ten pounds, and this helmet and I go over to Tommy Franks, General Franks? And I said, 'I have to be honest with you. I'm freaking out a little bit right now. I just need to know that we're going to be okay.' And he said, 'Little darlin', I guarantee you this: We've got more bullets than they got assholes.' Not quite the answer I was looking for."

Tommy Franks for President 2008!

And that Katrina-relief general who told reporters "Don't get stuck on stupid!" for VP.

Another fun TF quote: 'it's unlikely our constitutional form of government would survive a massive terrorist attack' or something very along those lines.

Amazing that she was the little girl Schwarzenegger threw up onto his shoulder in the 1985 action flick "Commando."

20 years ago already... Makes ya feel old.

She's still a loon, but honestly milder than most. Plus, it's easy to forgive her.

She played Samantha on "Who's the Boss" in the mid 80s thru early 90s. This picture was from about 1984 when she was 12 if I'm doing my math right (she's 33 now).

Sounds just like a Texan and a 4 star at that. LOL

Is this from a story from 2003?

I believe Tommy Franks has retired.

I read his book and it is amazing.

if I'm doing my math right (she's 33 now).

Your math skills are right on, and so is the timing of this thread, today is her birthday.
