Mattis Just Took an Unannounced Trip to ISIS's Doorstep to Personally Tell Them They're About to Die

He hates the name Mad Dog, but he's a mad dog.  Or a remorseless, biting pit bull.  Whatever, he's one tough, no nonsense guy, and I'm glad he's on our side.
In a press conference upon his arrival Mattis made the following points:
ISIS will not retake territory and cannot stand up to American forces:
“[ISIS] have been shown to be unable to stand up to our team in combat and they have not retaken one inch of ground that they've lost.”
ISIS is trapped:
“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.”
ISIS is a bunch of cowards:
“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.”
America is the “good guy”:
“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.”


  1. I endorse him also.

    Lt Col BillB (I really am that rank -- double entendre intended)

  2. He explained the deal with "Mad Dog". The only people who get to call him that are the Marines who served with him in the 1st Marine Division in Iraq. They do it, and he grins bigger than a mule eating briars.
