    General James 'Mad Dog' Mattis

    Some quotes to chew on from the new US secretary of DEfence



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

    - One of the rules Maj. Gen. James Mattis gave his Marines to live by in Iraq, as quoted in Fiasco: The American Military Adventure in Iraq (2006) by Thomas E. Ricks; as excerpted in Armed Forces Journal (August 2006)

    I come in peace. I didnít bring artillery. But Iím pleading with you, with tears in my eyes: If you fuck with me, Iíll kill you all.

    - After the invasion of Iraq -and after sending his tanks and artillery home- Mattis sent this message to the Iraqi leaders in every area his men served in, as quoted in Fiasco: The American Military Adventure in Iraq (2006) by Thomas E. Ricks; as excerpted in Armed Forces Journal (August 2006)

    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. There are hunters and there are victims. By your discipline, cunning, obedience and alertness, you will decide if you are a hunter or a victim. Itís really a hell of a lot of fun. Youíre gonna have a blast out here!

    - Addressing a gathering of 200 marines

    The world order is under the biggest attack since World War Two, from Russia, terrorist groups, and Chinaís actions in the South China Sea.

    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

    Marines don't know how to spell the word defeat

    Looking forward to seeing how he is going to shake things up.

    The guy cut his balls off when he signed up with Trump. Trump runs the show and Mathis is nothing more than a tool. That's why he's been excluded from the NSC meetings unless his opinion is deemed worthy to be heard by Bannon.

    Not underperforming...but staff that challenges his proclamations..after all, what president doesn't want people challenging his ideas? What positive things could come from that?

    I dunno. I heard him contradicting Trump on the effectiveness of torture (which Trump originally supported) and Trump then changed his tune and said he would defer to the knowledge of the battlefield warrior.

    here's the new normal we're living in...

    this guy would never have been considered for a job at this level in any other administration ....and in the trump administration, he's the one that people are expecting to be the adult in the room.

    i'm beginning to think that john dean is right....the only way this ends is in calamity.

    could be wrong, but i think the two who were squeezed out of the principals committee were the chairman of the joint chiefs and the DNI.

    "You go into _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ , you got guys who slap women around for five years because they didn't wear a veil. You know, guys like that ain't got no manhood left anyway. So it's a hell of a lot of fun to shoot them. Actually it's quite fun to fight them, you know. It's a hell of a hoot. It's fun to shoot some people. I'll be right up there with you. I like brawling."

    Hey Pizza,

    The red I sent you earlier was clearly labelled 'gunning for cabbage' and was a non-hostile and purely cabbage-fun-related red so no need to take it personally.

    I got most of the quotes from wikiquotes

    The rest from various news articles.

    I don't care where you get them - put up links.

    It's the rules and it's fair.

    I can't be arsed putting a separate link for each quote. If you want to verify the veracity or source just google the quote and it will come up.

    I even copied the source details for the wikiquote quotes so it is a glass is half full situation as far as references goes.

    If anyone really takes the time to think this through that conclusion is inevitable. And calamity is the right word. It's impossible to have an outcome that does not seriously damage the country.
