It seems that General James “Mad Dog” Mattis is going to be the new secretary of defense. Mad Dog Mattis was a great hero and an iconic figure between U.S. marines. He is famous for his strong attitude and his statements against Islamic terrorism and radicalism. This bold general is ,,the heel of Achilles” for ISIS and there are 3 main reasons why:
1. He has bled on the battlefield for this country.
He led from the front. Indeed, on at least one occasion that I know of, the General was bloodied from a firefight or improvised explosive device while out on patrol with junior, enlisted Marines one-third his age. That’s what makes Gen. Mattis such a great warrior: He truly respects and cares for his Marines.
“Guardiano,” he told me, “I don’t give a damn about the officers. If they don’t like what they’re doing, they can get on a plane and leave the Corps — go back where they came from. But I do care deeply about those 18- and 19-year-old Lance Corporals out on the frontlines.”
In February 1, 2005, Mattis was quoted as saying.
“Actually, it’s a lot of fun to fight. You know, it’s a hell of a hoot. It’s fun to shoot some people. I’ll be right upfront with you, I like brawling.”
A general who is prepared to fight alongside his troops on the front lines? Now that’s the kind of leader America’s servicemen and women deserve.
4. “Mad Dog” doesn’t play politics when it comes to radical Islam
Many say in order to defeat your enemy, you must first understand and your enemy — and Mattis seems to understand the threat posed by the depraved ideology of radical Islam. He’s also witnessed and fought radical Islam on the battlefield.
Here’s what Mattis had to say in 2015 about the “enemy” in Afghanistan:
“Gains achieved at great cost against our enemy in Afghanistan are reversible. We may not want this fight, but the barbarity of an enemy that kills women and children and has refused to break with al-Qaeda needs to be fought.”
That seems pretty definitive. Now, watch his answer on how to combat radical Islam:
In a 2015 interview with The Wall Street Journal, Mattis also showed he has done his own research on radical Islam, tracing the “problem” with the religion all the way back to the days of Prophet Muhammad:
“The problem with Islam goes back to the day of the prophet, when he dies and it splits into two halves. And at that point, they have an internal war, that’s kept waxing and waning over the years… between the Sunni and the Shia. The first time that I think I can find jihad in our presidential papers is with Thomas Jefferson. And for the Marine Corps we got ‘to the shores of the Tripoli’ in our song from that campaign.”
“This is not new and it has gone on for a long time. Obviously, it’s in a waxing phase — it’s getting stronger. I think the first question you have to ask is as you try to make sense out of all this: Is political Islam in our best interest?”
5. If you have any final doubts, here is his note to the troops under his command on the eve of the Iraq War
This is what we have been talking about! This is what America needs! It is time to finish what we once started and get rid of those terrorists once for all. The pacifist hippie Obama government did nothing, but only put our people in danger with low level security and ignorance. Mad Dog, we are expecting you !
