PowerPoint makes us stupid, Gen. James N. Mattis of the Marine Corps, the Joint Forces commander
General James “Mad Dog” Mattis is the man! He is not only a great Marine but a great warrior.
Here are some quotes from the General:
“You go into Afghanistan, you got guys who slap women around for five years because they didn’t wear a veil. You know, guys like that ain’t got no manhood left anyway. So it’s a hell of a lot of fun to shoot them. Actually, it’s a lot of fun to fight. You know, it’s a hell of a hoot. It’s fun to shoot some people. I’ll be right upfront with you, I like brawling.”
“I come in peace, I didn’t bring artillery. But I am pleading with you with tears in my eyes: If you fuck with me, I’ll kill you all.”
Marine General James Mattis, to Iraqi tribal leaders
“Computers by their nature are isolating. They build walls. The nature of war is immutable: You need trust and connection.” He dismissed the net-centric emphasis as “a Marxian view — it ignores the spiritual.”
We need about a thousand more like him and the entire world would quake with fear of offending the USA.
