I hear a lot of liberals claiming that Mattis shouldn’t be SecDef. They’re afraid of him being a war hawk because of famous quotes, like “It’s fun to shoot some people,” and “War is a hell of a hoot.”
Here’s the full quote main stream media isn’t showing you, because it doesn’t fit their anti-trump narrative.
“You go into Afghanistan, 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.”
Mattis was a Marine’s Marine. He served for his Marines and his country. He’s also a tactician, and he isn’t afraid to call a pile of shit, a pile of shit, nor is he afraid to take a big bite out of said shit when he has it in front of him.
This is a man the military not only wants, but needs at the helm right now. He will make the decisions that need to be made, and he will tell anyone in the administration exactly what he thinks of a situation, even if it might hurt their feelings. Mattis is a true deity when it comes to war, and he recognizes how terrible the action actually is.
He recognizes that action because he was on the ground during the invasion of Iraq. Not sitting in some War room moving pieces on a map, no, that’s not Mattis. He was on the ground with the troops. He was being shot at the same as us. He was watching our brothers and sisters get medically evacuated in pieces, same as us.
He understands the true cost of war. Let me leave you with another James “Mad Dog” Mattis quote. One the “journalists” won’t bother to show you due to it not fitting the agenda.
“For decades, Saddam Hussein has tortured, imprisoned, raped and murdered the Iraqi people; invaded neighboring countries without provocation; and threatened the world with weapons of mass destruction. The time has come to end his reign of terror. On your young shoulders rest the hopes of mankind. When I give you the word, together we will cross the Line of Departure, close with those forces that choose to fight, and destroy them. Our fight is not with the Iraqi people, nor is it with members of the Iraqi army who choose to surrender. While we will move swiftly and aggressively against those who resist, we will treat all others with decency, demonstrating chivalry and soldierly compassion for people who have endured a lifetime under Saddam’s oppression. Chemical attack, treachery, and use of the innocent as human shields can be expected, as can other unethical tactics. Take it all in stride. Be the hunter, not the hunted: never allow your unit to be caught with its guard down. Use good judgment and act in best interests of our Nation. You are part of the world’s most feared and trusted force. Engage your brain before you engage your weapon. Share your courage with each other as we enter the uncertain terrain north of the Line of Departure. Keep faith in your comrades on your left and right and Marine Air overhead. Fight with a happy heart and strong spirit. For the mission’s sake, our country’s sake, and the sake of the men who carried the Division’s colors in the past battles-who fought for life and never lost their nerve-carry out your mission and keep your honor clean. Demonstrate to the world there is “No Better Friend, No Worse Enemy” than a U.S. Marine.”
