I read some of the "Mattisisms" as I'd call them, earlier. WoW, talk about a General that never got his P.C. class, let alone sensitivity training.
Of course, the man is a Marine and was the head of Marines in combat. What do we want? Mr Rogers? I don't know quite what the real reasons are for
cashiering him like this after a distinguished career but it's wrong the way it's happened.
The more I've read about him the more he strikes me as a butt kicker of the Chosin Reservoir school of thinking. Just the man we really do need in
charge of those men.....but hell, this is the new Amerika where even Soldiers need to be touchy, feely and carry band-aids and aid kits to patch 'em
up after cutting them in half with machine guns.
It's one hell of a way to run a war. (and I do wonder about the rumors of these Generals and Admirals being dumped because they flat won't back
first strike war against Iran? If that's true...we'll know soon...and we're in for a nightmare by that indication)
