General Mattis Considered for SecDef

WSJ has the piece, here.

If Donald Trump brings this man aboard - in any post - he will prove to the hardest Right that he is serious.  He's being considered for SecDef - I say put him at State.  Watch the world calm right the fcuk down...

Anyone who doesn't grasp that simple concept has no business commenting on politics or breeding.

A few Mattis quotes:

The first time you blow someone away is not an insignificant event. That said, there are some assholes in the world that just need to be shot.

I come in peace. I didn’t bring artillery. But I’m pleading with you, with tears in my eyes: If you fuck with me, I’ll kill you all.

Find the enemy that wants to end this experiment (in American democracy) and kill every one of them until they’re so sick of the killing that they leave us and our freedoms intact.

Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet.

No war is over until the enemy says it’s over. We may think it over, we may declare it over, but in fact, the enemy gets a vote.

I’m going to plead with you, do not cross us. Because if you do, the survivors will write about what we do here for 10,000 years.


  1. thinkingman is with you on this one.The General would quickly seek to reverse the "dumbing down' of the military that was the goal of the failed president B.O., and give us a competent fighting force again.

    1. Agreed. Gen. Mattis is a hardcore dude. Knows his stuff and has an amazingly grave level of determination to prevail, even under demoralizing circumstances.

      In a word, he's unshakable.


  2. "I come in peace. I didn’t bring artillery. But I’m pleading with you, with tears in my eyes: If you fuck with me, I’ll kill you all."

    I believe that most people utterly fail to understand the context and significance of this statement. It was 2006; the Iraqi war was over 3 years in-process, and was not going well; Mattis withdrew all Marine artillery and armor from Iraq, sending it out of country against every recommendation, and he chose the above words to be translated into Arabic and Persian, and delivered to every combatant - by radio, by leaflet drop, and even by messenger.

    Mattis was actually trying to de-escalate the war in Iraq - in 2006 - and without much support from the DC crowd, either.

    He was doing it because he knew - he saw what was happening, how the violence in Iraq was metastasizing into a permanent state of chaotic violence where a few very evil men could easily rule, and even conquer, indefinitely. He saw the egg which would hatch into ISIS and was trying to prevent it.

    In short, Mattis saw the coming of a new dark age in the mid-east, and was trying to prevent it's coming. And -- had the US and UN establishment supported him --- it probably would have worked. But the industrial-war-machine would not allow peace to be approached seriously.

    This man needs to be either Sec.Def or Sec.State, I honestly don't know which position his vision, grim determination, and resolve are more usefully applied in. Bu I bet if you asked him, he'd give you his honest opinion.
