Trump has chosen General “Mad Dog” Mattis as his Secretary of Defense. His fellow Marines are rejoicing. But the Left is in a tizzy. They are running for their safe spaces and cringing at the General’s very direct way of dealing with our enemies.
This is a man whose famous quote, directed at troops in Iraq, is “Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet.” This is a man who will deal firmly with those who plot against the United States. And that will be a refreshing change for our military and our citizens.
Saturday at the Reagan National Defense Forum, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Joseph Dunford, an Obama appointee, was asked if he was worried about Mattis becoming Secretary of Defense.
Senator Pete Wilson moderated the question, Dunford’s answer was a quick and curt, “No.”
And this is Obama’s guy saying this. Pretty embarrassing for our current Commander in Chief. But very encouraging for the rest of us. Welcome to the pack, Mad Dog.
