Real Strategy

                        Real Strategy
On D-Day, June 6th, 1944, 10,000 air planes and 5000 ships were in readiness. Also, 800 typewritten pages were required for a terse summary of the overall naval plan alone.  A complete set of actual naval orders, with necessary maps, weighed 300 pounds.  Equally bulky were the plans for ground, air and logistic operations.
Two examples in the strategy to conquer the Nazi enemy and Hitler:  twenty underwater pipelines to pump 1million gallons of gasoline a day from England to France and the building of a complete railway system to be transported across the Channel and set up in a remarkably short time in replacement of air-shattered systems of northern France.

B Eat your heart out, Obama.
