Mattis was the last of our fighting generals.

Pentagon insiders say that he rubbed civilian officials the wrong way -- not because he went all "mad dog," which is his public image, and the view at the White House, but rather because he pushed the civilians so hard on considering the second- and third-order consequences of military action against Iran.

Wow, he reached the rank of general with out learning you don’t challenge Democrats with tough questions.

This happened because his higher commanders are Obama “butt boys”

“A particular point of disagreement was what to do about mischief Iran is exporting to other countries.”

“Mischief”... Is that what we are calling Iran’s hand in terrorism these days?

Chess is apparently beyond the capabilities of the administration.

There is also a belief that Mattis and Obama differed on Iran.

What exactly is Obama's view of Iran? As a matter of fact can anyone define America's policy regarding Iran at any time since 1981? We sold them weapons for hostages, armed Saddam Hussein so he could slaughter them, buy their oil (oil for food scam), sell them technology (through third party countries), threaten them, betray the people of Iran when they try to rise up, promise to negotiate, play footsie in the UN, give them a Predator drone and get really serious with more sanctions. I don't know how anyone could disagree about Iran since no one has a position on Iran.

“...fired..., without even calling the general to let him know he was being replaced.”

I’d say that was dishonorable, contrary to good order and discipline, and undermines cohesion.

“...he pushed the civilians so hard on considering the second- and third-order consequences of military action against Iran.”

In many cases, the consequences of action, military or not, do not receive enough attention. But that seems to be the liberal way of thinking.

Getting rid of the warrior mentality and those stalwarts that would defend the constitution is all about bringing down the country. The mad marxist continues his destruction and any general who he views as a potential threat to his power is chopped off at the knees. WE are in desperate need of 3 good generals to step forward and relieve BO, and the head of the other 2 branches of govt. Bo, his bitch and his cronies to be immediately escorted to gitmo for indefinite confinement.

What I should have done was liquidate all the high ranking officers, as Stalin did!

Taken in a very broad context firing a general is a serious error.

While alive, the general and his fired former brothers in arms are free to plot the coup d’état

I wonder if the good General has anything he can reveal to the American people? Maybe he will have a bone to pick with someone in the administration.

BO: “I don’t always fire my top generals, but when I do I use a Post-It note....” Stay classy, my friend.

The mainstream news media is so carefully avoiding this story it’s likely they were directed by the White House to ignore it. Since last year it seems like there is an effort to decapitate the U.S. military.
