James Mattis, A Soldier’s Soldier

We’ve all read the provocative quotes and have heard him referred to again and again as the “Mad Dog.”  It’s a distortion of the real man and the qualities he has that made him a great Marine general and an excellent Secretary of Defense.

  1. DID Y’ALL CATCH MAD DOG’S COMMENT TO PELOSI ABOUT THE DRESS CODE MATTER???

    “Says the former Speaker of the House who obviously didn’t give a sht about this but now that it is a political hammer, swing away.”

    I LOVE THIS GUY!! I WANT BACK IN, AS LONG AS I GET TO KILL BAD GUYS!!

  2. I sleep better knowing he is keeping the bad guys up at night. Thank God Trump won and Hillary lost.

    Not a day goes by that I don’t think that for some reason or another.

  3. pelopidas, exactly

    obama needed one more term to drive america into the ditch with no recovery possible

    with cnn’s black messiah and hillary gone, they are trying to continue the mission of distract, mislead, and destroy

    trump is strong and has surrounded himself with strong people

    we are in the best hands that we could expect, now we just need our weak rnc congress onboard

  4. He would be upset at being called”A soldier’s soldier”. “He is a Marine’s Marine” He would tell you so with no uncertain terms, with plenty of expletives!

  5. Soldiers would follow him to hell, as many have. There was no way for them to follow our ‘ lead from behind’ president obama.

  6. In the Saint picture I see he has “the holy hand grenade of Antioch”.

    A Marine’s Marine.

  7. @Tony that one is being accused of being a rip off of someone else’s work. It’s why I didn’t use either directly and this photo of Mattis signing what claims to be the original served the narrative perfectly.

    I don’t know which is the original and which is derivative, but given that Mattis seems happy to sign what claims to be the original I picked that one.

    Here’s a link to the one claiming to be the orginal.

  8. Dr. Tar: didn’t know I was opening a can of worms. I did a google Image search and picked the first one I came to that matched the one he was signing. At any rate, it would be derivative but not a copy.

  9. A friend (from an Ace of Spades meetup from 2008) is active duty Marine and adores Mattis. He ought to know. Friend spent the night here a few months back and we had a wide ranging discussion about Mattis over a bottle of bourbon by the fire ring. Y’all should have been here. He’s been to all the tourist attractions. Mosul, Ramadi, Yemen, Somalia…..

  10. Friend also is a believer in the Mattis school of thought that an educated Marine is a more deadly Marine. A few years back when his expeditionary unit was deployed to the gulf and off the coast of East Africa I adopted them. Sent them the usual stuff; jerky, candy, toiletries, etc.
    when I wrote him about what he wanted it was books on the history an so geography of Somalia, Yemen, Sudan, etc.

    Not many available, but I assembled what I could find and sent them. An educated Marine is a deadly Marine.
    Mattis all the Way.
