    In Japan, he is known as 'brutal LeMay.'
    He called the peaceful end of the Cuban Missile Crisis 'the greatest defeat in our history.'
    During the crisis, he advocated an all-out air raid on Cuba and nuclear retaliation on the Soviet Union if they responded.
    He was unsuccessful as Chief of Staff and lost many appropriation battles because of his inflexibility.
    His mantra: 'If you kill enough of them, they stop fighting.'
    He lamented over the fact that the U.S. did not nuke the Soviet Union when they had no nuclear weapons.
    His colleagues in the Air Force gave him the nickname 'Iron Ass.'
    His infamous solution to the Vietnam War: 'Bomb them back into the Stone Age.'
    He never masked his true feelings on war and current events like other high-ranking military officers.

    He always felt that he was doing what was in the best interest of his nation.
    His political career did not get off the ground.
    He retreated from the public eye after his defeat and humiliation in the 1968 presidential election.
    It is said that he is the inspiration for George C. Scott's hilarious performance as General Turgidson in the black comedy 'Dr. Strangelove.'
