Make no mistake, Mad Dog Mattis is a warrior. He knows that Obama’s policy when it comes to fighting ISIS was JV. It seems that everything Obama did was wrong, so Mattis decided to do the opposite. It’s only logical. If everything Obama did was wrong, then we must to whatever Obama didn’t do.
Secretary of Defense Mattis told U.S. military leaders to abandon Obama administration procedures and start focusing on killing Islamic State fighters instead.
The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Joseph Dunford explained: “When Secretary Mattis looked at our anti-ISIS campaign, he concluded that in some instances we were essentially just pushing the enemy from one location to another,” Dunford said. “He asked me and the military chain-of-command to make a conscious effort not to allow ISIS fighters to just flee from one location to another, but rather to deliberately seek to ‘annihilate’ the enemy.”
Mattis is a no-nonsense guy. He’s a true soldier who understands the enemy and can think of a way to defeat him. Mattis is the kind of guy we’ve been missing for the last 8 years.
Young Conservatives reports:
Obama was in over his head as president in a variety of ways.
There really isn’t any rational argument to the contrary.
His biggest blunders were definitely on the foreign policy side.
Everywhere you look, he made mistake after mistake.
Most notably, his boneheaded decision to pull out of Iraq too early which led to the rise of ISIS.
