Mattis calls it like he sees it. I can tell you from past interactions, he is a man of action. That shouldn’t come as a surprise to many who read this blog but for those of you just tuning in, Mad Dog is a beast.
I especially admire his quote to reporters at the Pentagon-
“You know, I need a certain amount of ambiguity on this,” Mattis told Pentagon reporters on Aug. 14, “because I’m not going to tell them what I’m going to do in each case.”
It’s about time we stop telling the enemy we are coming (obama) as that puts our warriors at risk and really in the end, doesn’t do much on the strategic level.
“If they do that (bomb Guam) , then it’s game on,” Mattis told reporters of a potential missile launch against Guam. “I think if they fire at the United States, it could escalate into war very quickly, yes. That’s called war, if they shoot at us.”
There is a new boss at the helm of the Dept of Defense and it shows!
Time for a C-gar
