A rather telling quote from Mad Dog Mattis

Edit: collietta has pointed out this is from a satire site. I had found it on quora and linked it back to it's duffel bag original article.. should have vetted it more thoroughly.

“Listen, I don’t like stupid #,” said Mattis. “but if you’re one of my fine young men about to go on deployment and you have a boot who isn’t listening, I think it’s a valuable training tool to duct tape him to a bench, mentor on an emotional level with a wall-to-wall counseling session, or make him dig a hole to China.”

“I mean hell, that’s where we’re going [China] eventually anyway. Might as well train like we fight,” he added.

If you think the UK won't get dragged into it, you have another thing coming.

Unless of course Charles gets pizzed and won't let you guys join.

Charles might start row with Trump

Never ends does it.

This can't be true anyways, if the USA does decide to have another war which will affect everyone, i say 'bugger it', lets all just put the fist up'm, then Trump may as build a wall right the way around the joint.

Isn't anyone else tired of this world police for their own agenda crap ?

I sure as hell am.

It would be political sucide for our goverment. The UK wont touch this war with a barge poll like it didnt touch vietnam.

Unless you offer us hong kong back we have no incentive to join you on your military aventurism.

And even if our governent did join I certainly wont be signing up to go.

Political suicide to deny the Brexit vote people tell me, but somehow I see that happening as well.

Politicians don't make enough money, they're cheap to buy off in the scheme of thing.

The article is dated Aug. 2012 and refers to Mattis chosen as Marine Commandant.

I also thought the Duffel Blog is military satire.

Edit: The site is satire. Just read the article instead of looking at the publication date and headline.

Duffleblog is a military satire site,just like the Onion is for civilians.
Take everything written in the blog with a ton of salt.

If "Mad Dog" Mattis still believes this, he could manufacture an urgent reason why we need to strike China.. Like Colin Powel did for attacking Saddam Hussein/Iraq.

I don't think he said any of the quotes in the article.

But because of his straightforwardness I can see how someone could believe this article; especially if you don't have a military background.

He said "eventually", not now.

I bet China is thinking the same about us.

He said "eventually", back in 2012..when the article was written. We're getting close to eventually now, I think.

Yes, this article is fake, I've asked for it to be moved.
I seen the quote on quora, and it linked to the duffel bag.
Fake news faked me out, sorry.
