Yesterday I posted a quote from General George Smith Patton, Jr. I ended the post with a question: “Where is George S. Patton when we need him?” Well, I found “him.” His name is General James Mattis.
Gen. James Mattis, known to his troops as “Mad Dog Mattis,” has just retired after 41 years of military service. The Marine Corps Times called Mattis the “most revered Marine in a generation.” Mattis was commander of the United States Central Command from 2010 until he retired (so, during the Obama administration). He also led the 1st Marine Division into Iraq in 2003.
Here are a couple quotes from Mad Dog Mattis.
“I come in peace. I didn’t bring artillery. But I’m pleading with you, with tears in my eyes: If you f*** with me, I’ll kill you all.”
“I’m going to plead with you, do not cross us. Because if you do, the survivors will write about what we do here for 10,000 years.”
Sounds a lot like President Obama, don’t you think?
