Defense Secretary James “Mad Dog” Mattis is reshaping the image of America’s military.
He’s ditched Obama’s portrayal of the military as the world’s peacekeeper and International referee.
Instead, with statements like this one, Mattis is making it clear that our military is ready and able to strike in defense of our nation.
To appease his anti-war base, President Obama spent eight years downplaying the American military as a portrayal of American strength.
Now, “Mad Dog” Mattis is changing all that.
The Free Beacon reports:
Defense Secretary Jim Mattis on Tuesday delivered a stern warning to any country or non-state actor that might threaten the United States.
“Those who would threaten America’s experiment in democracy must know if you threaten us, it will be your longest and worst day,” Mattis told the House Armed Services Committee in congressional testimony.
Mattis was on Capitol Hill to brief lawmakers on the Trump administration’s recently released National Defense Strategy and Nuclear Posture Review. The Pentagon chief said that his priority is to make the military more lethal…
“Our first line of effort emphasizes that everything we do must contribute to the lethality of our military,” Mattis said. “In war, an enemy will attack a perceived weakness; therefore, we cannot adopt a single preclusive form of warfare. Rather, we must be able to fight across the spectrum of combat. This means the size and composition of our force matters.”
Mattis emphasized the importance of the U.S. military investing in new technological advances, noting that “we cannot expect success fighting tomorrow’s conflicts with yesterday’s weapons and equipment.
“If you threaten us, it will be your longest and worst day.”
Mattis is making it clear to our enemies that America means business.
One Daily Caller editor called it “another contender for ‘The Most Mad Dog Quote Of All Time.'”
