Ye, www.msn.com has reported on it as well, however it seems a story from 1hr ago by the Washington Post.

New on Zero Hedge. Trump Picks Retired Marine General "Mad-Dog" Mattis As Secretary Of Defense. Guy is a retired Marine Corp general, and damn but this guy sounds like he's as tough as old shoe leather. ZH provided 16 quotes from him. This one is typical:

I come in peace. I didn’t bring artillery. But I’m pleading with you, with tears in my eyes: If you # with me, I’ll kill you all.

This guy deserves to be in the Pentagon a lot more than Donald Rumsfeld did, or whoever Obama has this year (too many to keep track of).


This guy deserves his own Comic Book, He is frightening.


What's frightening about him?

Too masculine for ya?


No too "B" Movie-ish. Read "Foolish" kind of tRump talk. He should stay retired.

Doesn't look like "Chisel-Chest" ever fought in open Combat either.


You apparently dont know what his Military decorations mean then if you think he never served in combat

No no no. He got his CAR and Bronze Star with V for serving in closed combat, not open combat.

“When you men get home and face an anti-war protester, look him in the eyes and shake his hand. Then, wink at his girlfriend, because she knows she's dating a pussy”

-General James N. Mattis



Lmfao, that is too funny.

Nice to see you come into the fold. As many here have stated, Trump is buying us time. Where we are going from here is up to us.

Trump said himself that this is our last chance.

We've been given an option and if we screw it up, we're f#ed forever.

The Duffel Blog already has an article up: "Mattis looking forward to 12 hour workdays, being blamed for everything the military does wrong."

I lol'd.

Well I wouldnt say im in the "fold" im still very critical of the man, but im also going to give credit where its due, this is a damn good pick for him if this goes through, And hes the type of guy Trump will probably listen to , Mad Dog is a force of nature, if you ever get to hear the man speak its something else......

I had the misfortune of meeting with and speaking to former SecDef Chuck Hagel.

This asshole completely forgot how to be a soldier and became a political yes man.

His security detail pointed their weapons at me while I talked to him in Afghanistan because HE didn't feel safe around his own god damned soldiers.

Compared to Mattis, Obama's picks for SecDef have been disastrous.

Admittedly, having many family members in the military, this choice of Secrectary of Defense...brings me peace of mind. Someone who will not just throw them to the dogs... He will ensure that if they have to fight, they will be given every opportunity to win in combat and not have their arms tied by pc politics!!!

I had a pistol and 85 rounds of 9mm on me.

He didn't seem to like the fact that I was armed in an effing war zone.
