BREAKING: Trump Appoints Mad Dog Mattis As Secretary Of DEFENSIVE – Adios, ISIS!

Trump has just appointed a real ass-kicking retired General as Secretary of Defense. Do you suddenly feel safer?

Watch:

General James Mattis (Ret.) has been an outspoken critic of the current Administration’s policies, saying that the incoming President would ‘inherit a mess’.

Isn’t that what most of us in ‘fly-over America’ have been thinking?

Check out what the Washington Post has to say about ‘Mad Dog’ Mattis:

President-elect Donald Trump has chosen retired Marine Gen. James N. Mattis to be secretary of defense, according to people familiar with the decision, selecting a former senior military officer who has said that responding to “political Islam” is the major security issue facing the United States.

Mattis, who retired as chief of U.S. Central Command in 2013, has often said that Washington lacks an overall strategy in the Middle East, opting to instead handle issues in an ineffective one-by-one manner.

“Is political Islam in the best interest of the United States?” Mattis said at the Heritage Foundation in 2015, speaking about the separate challenges of the Islamic State and Iranian-backed terrorism. “I suggest the answer is no, but we need to have the discussion. If we won’t even ask the question, how do we even recognize which is our side in a fight?”…

…Mattis, 66, served more than four decades in the Marine Corps and is known as one of the most influential military leaders of his generation, serving as a strategic thinker while occasionally drawing rebukes for his aggressive talk. Since retiring, he has served as a consultant and as a visiting fellow with the Hoover Institution, a think tank at Stanford University.

Like Trump, Mattis favors a tougher stance against U.S. adversaries abroad, especially Iran. The general, speaking at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in April, said that while security discussions often focus on terrorist groups such as the Islamic State or al-Qaeda, the Iranian regime is “the single most enduring threat to stability and peace in the Middle East.”

Mattis said the next president “is going to inherit a mess” and argued that the nuclear deal signed by the Obama administration last year may slow Iran’s ambitions to get a nuclear weapon but will not stop them. But he added that “absent a clear and present violation,” he did not see a way that Washington could go back on it, because any unilateral sanctions issued by the United States would not be as valuable if allies were not on board…

…“The president-elect is smart to think about putting someone as respected as Jim Mattis in this role,” said a former senior Pentagon official. “He’s a warrior, scholar and straight shooter — literally and figuratively. He speaks truth to everyone and would certainly speak truth to this new commander in chief.”

Marines love the ‘Warrior Monk’ as Mattis is sometimes known.

The Jarheads have even created a hashtag on Twitter with some of his best quotes. They call them ‘Mattisisms’.
