Fantasy Pick to Replace McChrystal

Okay.  So Obama may not even fire the good General for his hilarious (and entirely accurate) digs on Vice President Biden, et al., but if he does, my vote for his replacement goes overwhelmingly to this guy.

General James Mattis, USMC


Of course, picking him would indicate that Obama actually wants to win the war in Afghanistan, and I don’t really think that he does.

Why do I like General Mattis so much?  I think I can put it best by using his own words. 

"You go into Afghanistan, you got guys who slap women around for five years because they didn't wear a veil. You know, guys like that ain't got no manhood left anyway. So it's a hell of a lot of fun to shoot them. Actually, it's a lot of fun to fight. You know, it's a hell of a hoot. It's fun to shoot some people. I'll be right upfront with you, I like brawling."

God bless you, sir.  Chesty Puller would be proud.  Semper Fidelis.
