Few American leaders possess a brass pair rivaling that of General Mattis. ISIS is shaking in their sand shaded footwear as Mattis sets his focus toward Iraq. Methinks he’s enjoying this.
This story courtesy of Benny Johnson over at Independent Journal Review:
In an unannounced trip to Iraq, a country that has seen horrific war and terrorism over the last decade, Secretary of Defense General James Mattis was making a statement.
“You see, ISIS is now caught in-between converging forces. So ISIS’s days are certainly numbered, but it’s not over yet and it’s not going to be over any time soon.”
“An enemy that hides behind women and children are showing who are the people violating every standard of decency and fills us with conviction [for] what we have to do about this enemy.”
“I’ve seen people fleeing to ISF (Iraqi security forces) and feeling safe when they get to them. That alone is more telling than anything there, you see people risking their lives getting from one side to another. We are the good guys and the innocent people in the battlefield know the difference.”
Mattis named the fight:
“ISIS’s last stand.”
I’m reminded of Braveheart. Imagine Mattis in fur, riding from the fire atop a stallion. Idyllic.
Call me old fashioned, call me a war hawk, but I rather like the idea of America kicking ass and taking names, being feared by enemies. It’s also refreshing to hear our military leaders taking pleasure in America being the best. I enjoy military leaders flexing their military might. I delight in Mattis delighting in American Military Supremacy. Yes, I capitalized that for no reason but to emphasis a point. Which I realize isn’t allowed in grammatically correct circles. Tuff toenails.
ISIS should run, cower, and pee their pants at the thought of the American military and its leaders. Welcome to the new era, dessert scum.
