Bull Dog Mattis



O'Bugger and his Commie Cohorts are dismantling the US military. One of the best ways to do that is to remove competent warrior leaders and replace them with drooling sycophants who will do exactly as they are told without asking embarrassing questions.

Such is the fate of Marine General James “Mad Dog" Mattis who is retiring after 41 years of service.
The Marine Corps Times is calling Mattis the “most revered Marine in a generation.”

Mattis has been commander of the United States Central Command since 2010 and led the 1st Marine Division into Iraq in 2003.

According to reports, President Barack Obama decided to force the Marine Corps legend out early because he rubbed civilian officials the wrong way, and forced them to answer tough questions regarding Iran.

Mattis was an inspirational leader of men and his powerful words will go down in history.

Here are some of the best words that the “Mad Dog” has had to offer:
1. “I don’t lose any sleep at night over the potential for failure. I cannot even spell the word.”

2. “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.”
When I read item #2 I wept at the unvarnished truth spoken, truly I did.

There are 14 more Bull Dog Mattis gems here.

At least he wasn't put out to pasture like Bubba did to those Elite Special Opps in that Hotel.
Or other Special Fighting Forces Guys in the past.
I remember about a General on a fishing trip found dead near his boat---stabbed? Don't remember but suspicious.

Always have a plan. But then you have to decide if you can live with implementation.

And, he isn't dead. He might not have a command, but that can change in less than a heartbeat should things go astray. I count that as a loss for our military, the Leathernecks, but not for America sum total.

It's just not fair to win wars anymore.

Wofat - he is a product of his experience and the voice of a generation that is fast leaving us.

TSWS - I remember an AF general who was persuaded to retire after calling the newly elected Bill Jeff a skirt chasing, dope smoking, draft dodger ... or words to that effect.
