LEANDRO L. FULLON (1873-1904)
Commanding General for the Visayas
Philippine revolutionary army (Katipunan)

On September 6, 1898, Gen. Leandro Fullon embarked on the gunboat Don Francisco at Cavite
to command Filipino revolutionary forces in the island of Panay. Together with Gen. Ananias Diocno and Gen. Martin Delgado, he led Filipino troops against Spanish forces under Gen. Diego de los Rios. Later, they fought against American troops commanded by Gen. Marcus P. Miller and Gen. Robert P. Hughes. Throughout the conflict, Fullon urged military leaders in the island to remain united and the troops to adhere to the highest standards of discipline, integrity and patriotism. He sought to resolve conflicts between the civilian government and the military leadership in Panay while battling corruption and abuses of power in both sectors. He was appointed provincial governor in 1901 and he supervised the census for the Visayas in 1903. Born in Hamtik, Antique on March 13 1873, he died on October 16, 1904.

63. The Boer War (South Africa, 1899-1902)
Provides a general overview of the conflict, with external links for biographical figures.
The Boer War
South Africa, 1899-1902
T he year is 1899. Queen Victoria has recently celebrated her Diamond Jubilee. The British Empire is at its zenith in power and prestige. But the High Commissioner of Cape Colony in South Africa, Alfred Milner, wants more. He wants to gain for the Empire the economic power of the gold mines in the Dutch Boer republics of the Transvaal and the Orange Free State. He also wants to create a Cape-to-Cairo confederation of British colonies to dominate the African continent. And he wants to rule over it. T o do this, Milner precipitates a war with the Boers. As always, over-confident generals and politicians predict the war will be over 'by Christmas'. And again, as frequently happened with the British in their colonial wars, they only win one battle - the last one. But they will have to wait two and a half years for that. Until then, disaster is piled on disaster, military careers are destroyed, 22,000 Tommy Atkins are laid to rest in 'some corner of a foreign field that is for ever England' , and the Empire muddles on in the heat and dust of the South African veldt.

from an engraving in the VMI Archives collection

F or four days in June 1864, Union troops commanded by General David Hunter occupied the small Shenandoah Valley town of Lexington, the home of the Virginia Military Institute. The federal forces, about 18,000 strong, entered the town on the afternoon of June 11. Athough their arrival had been briefly delayed by the resistance of a small cavalry force led by General John McCausland , a VMI graduate and former faculty member, the Confederate troops were greatly outnumbered and were soon forced to retreat. The VMI Corps of Cadets, having only recently returned to VMI after their participation in the Battle of New Market on May 15 , were also ordered to retreat; they camped near the top of the Blue Ridge Mountains, about two miles from Balcony Falls, on the night of the 11th. There were no civilian or military casualties as a result of this occupation. However, VMI was both the site of a state arsenal and a military training school, and the Institute was considered to be a legitimate military target. On June 12, Hunter ordered the burning of VMI.

Chapter One WAR IS A RACKET WAR is a racket. It always has been. It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of the people. Only a small "inside" group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few, at the expense of the very many. Out of war a few people make huge fortunes. In the World War [I] a mere handful garnered the profits of the conflict. At least 21,000 new millionaires and billionaires were made in the United States during the World War. That many admitted their huge blood gains in their income tax returns. How many other war millionaires falsified their tax returns no one knows.

About North Georgia
With Zachary Taylor's troops stuck in northern Mexico, General Winfield Scott proposed a bold plan, an amphibious attack on the coastal Mexican town of Vera Cruz. Scott used his extensive experience with similar operations on the Canadian frontier during the War of 1812 in planning the attack. The attack was the largest amphibious landing of any nation up to that date. Beginning in February, 1847, Scott amassed nearly 12,000 troops at the Rio Grande on the border of Texas and Mexico. Opposing him would be more than 20,000 Mexicans, some of whom were seasoned veterans under the command of Santa Anna, the Centralist leader who 10 years earlier invaded Texas, ordered the massacre at Goliad and led the attack on the Alamo. General Winfield Scott
Commanding the largest amphibious force in history (to that date), Scott captures Vera Cruz ("True Cross") in 20 days. Courtesy National Archives Scott landed about three miles south of the city on March 10, 1847, and encircled Vera Cruz in four days, laying siege to the Mexican city. By the end of the month the encircled city surrendered. It was the first in a series of successes that would make General Scott an American hero. Moving inland, Scott encountered 12,000 Mexican nationals at Cerro Gordo or El Telegrafo. In what was a textbook execution of a brilliant plan, Scott encircled Santa Anna's army and forced it to withdraw. A mistake by Gideon Pillow unfortunately cost the lives of hundreds of men, however, because of Pillow's close association with then President Polk, the error was downplayed in Scott's report.

IRAQ SINCE THE GULF WAR Monday, November 23, 1998 10:00 AM 11:00 AM United States Institute of Peace
1200 17th Street, NW
2nd Floor Conference Room On November 23, 1998 former National Security Advisor Lieutenant General Brent Scowcroft (Ret.) spoke to a public gathering at an Institute Current Issues Briefing, and discussed the challenge of the Iraqi leadership and its weapons of mass destruction (WMD) activities to U.S. foreign policy. General Scowcroft reviewed existing U.S. policy and goals, which include both UN economic sanctions and support for United Nations Special Commission (UNSCOM) An audience member poses a
question to General Scowcroft
Where Scowcroft took issue with the administration's current stance was on the question of what it will take for the U.S. to now respond to Iraqi misbehavior. "The U.S. has indicated its willingness to act if Saddam violated the agreement, but left unclear what would constitute a violation. What would he have to do to violate the agreement? What is a triggering event? This is difficult to decide. For example, what if he refuses to turn over documents? Refuses an inspection at one site? Delays for 24 or 48 hours? He could do a lot of damage without ever having done something we all could agree was a violation serious enough to justify use of force."

Smedley Butler on Interventionism
Excerpt from a speech delivered in 1933, by Major General Smedley Butler, USMC. War is just a racket. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of people. Only a small inside group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few at the expense of the masses. I believe in adequate defense at the coastline and nothing else. If a nation comes over here to fight, then we'll fight. The trouble with America is that when the dollar only earns 6 percent over here, then it gets restless and goes overseas to get 100 percent. Then the flag follows the dollar and the soldiers follow the flag. I wouldn't go to war again as I have done to protect some lousy investment of the bankers. There are only two things we should fight for. One is the defense of our homes and the other is the Bill of Rights. War for any other reason is simply a racket. There isn't a trick in the racketeering bag that the military gang is blind to. It has its "finger men" to point out enemies, its "muscle men" to destroy enemies, its "brain men" to plan war preparations, and a "Big Boss" Super-Nationalistic-Capitalism. It may seem odd for me, a military man to adopt such a comparison. Truthfulness compels me to. I spent thirty- three years and four months in active military service as a member of this country's most agile military force, the Marine Corps. I served in all commissioned ranks from Second Lieutenant to Major-General. And during that period, I spent most of my time being a high class muscle- man for Big Business, for Wall Street and for the Bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism.

Partridge, United States Air Force. General Partridge distinguished himself by extraordinary heroism while participating in aerial flight on 30 November 1950 in the Kaechon-Kunuri area of Korea. In an attempt to locate and plan avenues of escape for an entrapped Turkish Army Brigade, General Partridge took off in an unarmed, unescorted L-5 type aircraft to perform this mission. Flying at a dangerously low altitude and in range of intense small arms and automatic weapons fire, he located the entrapped Brigade. Remaining in the area, General Partridge plotted avenues of escape for the Brigade and planned important air support by units of his command. This heroic action was instrumental in the successful withdrawal of the Turkish Brigade to safety. The fortitude, initiative and devotion to duty displayed by General Partridge reflect great credit upon himself, the United States Air Force and the United Nations' Forces.
