The Thin Yellow Line/History Repeats Itself

After getting units of his Third Army across the Rhine and into the German heartland in 1945, General George Patton stopped in the middle of a pontoon bridge, and reached for his fly. . .

. . .and, yeah, he pissed in the river.

If I recall correctly, he said something like, “I’ve waited a long time to do this.”

Today, elements of Third Army are crossing the Euphrates River and preparing to move into Saddam’s final stronghold. It’s not a pretty picture, but I have to wonder how many American troops are relieving themselves somewhere on the bridge.
