U.S. General Says It's "Fun to Shoot Some People."

Story here:
"Actually it's quite fun to fight 'em, you know. It's a hell of a hoot. It's fun to shoot some people. I'll be right up front with you, I like brawling," Mattis said.

"You go into Afghanistan, you got guys who slap women around for five years because they didn't wear a veil," Mattis said during a panel discussion. "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."
All I've got to say is: give that man a promotion.

Thank the stars above that America still makes Marines.


Comments:
It's amazing to see the differences in the reactions to this comment on right and left. Almost every conservative has had the same reaction as you, Dave, while the left has been aghast at the inhumanity. I have to say that while his words may sound a bit, I don't know, over the top, I think his sentiments would be shared by most. How many among us would relish the opportunity to have Osama bin Laden cornered and trapped like a rat? I suppose it is not the most Christian mentality, but surely we can be forgiven for enjoying bringing just punishment on such awful people.
 
CAIR freaked out and asked for the guy to be publicly reprimanded. When I heard that, I immediately thought, "What about his statement is untrue? Are you suggesting that the Taliban was NOT slapping women around?"
 
Or, are you suggesting that shooting people is not fun??
 
"some people" Dave, not "people". You trying to get a job with CNN or something?

Marines are always over the top, they're bigger than life, every John Wayne movie ever made rolled into flesh and blood, and God bless them for it.:D
