Exit Another Fighting Gen.
New York Post ^ | January 23, 2013 | MICHAEL A. WALSH

Posted on 01/26/2013 11:51:16 AM PST by pepperdog

Lost in the inaugural hullabaloo was Tuesday’s news that President Obama has relieved Gen. James “Mad Dog” Mattis, the colorful and highly decorated Marine who’s been in charge of the crucial US Central Command, which oversees the various wars in the Middle East, since 2010.

Zer0 probably only wants bone smugglers in the service.

We are going to need men like this when we are sucked into a REAL war, with a Real enemy and not a 3rd world basket case nation. World War III is coming and it will not be with Iran or North Korea. I see the foe as China and they will fight to the last peasant soldier —its a war we may not win. My advise—start to learn how to speak Chinese! Maybe they will give you a wee bit more rice in the camps.

At least he didn’t ‘commit suicide’ like SEAL team #4 leader did (Job Price).

Supposedly Mattis had a disagreement with National Security Adviser Tom Donilon. Seems Mattis speaks bluntly, and probably truthfully, that is something the Obama administration can’t stand.

I assume that's a rhetorical question.Osama Obama's never even *attempted* to keep his contempt for our Armed Forces a secret.Any senior officer who isn't,at the very least,willing to pretend that that contempt doesn't exist had best clear out his "desk".

I suspect he answered: “NO!!!” to Bronco’s question about firing upon American citizens.

Didn't Saddam Hussein do something like this when he beheaded his Army of its best officers?

In this case though, I have a nagging suspicion that Mattis said he would not fire on US citizens.... if ordered to do so by an out-of-control tyrant.

Realoly .. I had no idea who he was.

In researching him, I learned a lot.

Most of what was made public, was a selected quote about being fun to shoot some people.

I found this response to a youtube clip of that selection;

"Mattis is the fucking man. They forgot the rest of the qoute. As it seem Patton really was reincarnated. "You go into Afghanistan, you got guys who slap women around for five years, because they didn't wear a veil," Mattis said. "You know guys like that ain't got no manhood left anyway. So it's a hell of a lot of fun to shoot 'em."

Apparently THAT part has been scrubbed from videocumentation (I claim that word as mine ... unless someone already has it)

I really wish that these Generals would stay in service and fight these policies that they oppose. If not, they should be very vocal about their reasons for retiring when they leave the service. Many changes have happened to the armed forces that will reduce their fighting effectiveness. The two biggest changes, openly serving gays and females in combat units, have been/will be implemented without any serious public opposition. That is wrong. Our military leadership is failing us in so many ways. It makes me sick.

Yup and the destruction of our fighting force is complete. Gays and girls will be doing the fighting and God isn't welcome. We're toast and you can bet foreign rulers with dreams of domination are chomping at the bit.

Before we worry about China, maybe we should worry about the Mohammedan in the White House. Could Mattis be our new Robert E. Lee.

BTW, anybody watch the ABC series, “The Last Resort”, which was cancelled for “low ratings”? Excellently done, if somewhat of too large a cast to keep track of. Anyway, the end of the series was indeed an ending and may have been the REAL reason for the cancellation.

If we know these guys, they will always be prepared for what is coming.

as for why he was treated so disrespectfully...

“In another post, Ricks says Mattis was fired because:

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. Some of those questions apparently were uncomfortable. Like, what do you do with Iran once the nuclear issue is resolved and it remains a foe? What do you do if Iran then develops conventional capabilities that could make it hazardous for U.S. Navy ships to operate in the Persian Gulf? He kept saying, “And then what?”

Is it because this marine won’t fire upon American citizens?

I am anxious to see guys like that step forward into the political arena. Like Allen West, their voices need to be heard.

You can’t blame someone for wanting some peace and quiet after a career that keeps you away from home for years on end, but we still need them.

The article you posted says he was not even notified by phone call- an advisor just passed him a note saying he was being relieved of command.

Well, I can see it now! A handful go queer generals are going to disarm 100 million of us? LOL!! Especially when millions of us expect to resist VOGOROUSLY? Really? Bozo is just screwing with us. He knows damn well it ain’t gonna happen. Now when the libtards start joining the military maybe so but that ain’t happening any time soon.

China is fighting to be top dog in Asia and kick us out. Got to humble Japan and South Korea. They might want to have the USA take some of their excess people—or take Guam or Hawaii at best but—it would do them no good to seize the USA. A small war to seize the islands might do the trick. Tyrants want wars to shore them up. Nothing like a few victories to ensure the people’s loyalty.
