Mattis Warns: "If You Threaten Us, It Will Be Your Longest And Worst Day"

Retired Marine general and U.S. Secretary of Defense James Mattis is no stranger to strong talk (and strong actions) but, as The Daily Caller's Justin Caruso reports, 'Mad-dog' put America’s enemies on notice while speaking before the House Armed Services Committee this week...

“If you threaten us, it will be your longest and worst day.”

“Our first line of effort emphasizes that everything we do must contribute to the lethality of our military,” Secretary Mattis stated. “In war, an enemy will attack a perceived weakness. Therefore, we cannot adopt a single pre set of warfare. If deterrence fails, we must win.”

“To defend our way of life, our military will embrace change while holding fast to traditional proven attributes that make us the most formidable force on any battlefield. Those who would threaten America’s experiment in democracy must know if you threaten us, it will be your longest and worst day."

“We will prioritize rebuilding readiness while modernizing our existing force,” he continued. “We will also be changing our force’s posture to prioritize readiness for war fighting and major combat, making us strategic predictable for our allies and operationally unpredictable for any adversary.”

Of course this is not the first time Mattis has been so quotable, as we noted in the past...

“I don’t have concerns. I create them”

The quote follows in a long tradition of magnificent Mattis quotes, including his answer to what keeps him awake at night:

“Nothing. I Keep Other People Awake At Night.”

And these classics:

“It’s quite fun to shoot them, you know. It’s a hell of a hoot. It’s fun to shoot some people.”

“There are some assholes in the world that just need to be shot.

“Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet.

Oh you dumb war mongering fuck, didn't anyone ever tell you that if you fire the first shot, you lost the war?  Go back to your psych. and figure out that nagging childhood pain that keeps you wanting to dominate others.  Perhaps and by grace of God, you will realize you're fighting yourself and give it up.

Any by the way, those bags under your eyes show weakness and exhaustion.

All this war mongering by mad dogs really comes back down to the new religion being imposed across the entire planet.  Every city across the west has new temples to this new religion.  Jews like to call them holocaust museums, but they are really temples where goyim can go to worship magic jews who kept resurrecting themselves and dying again and again until the sacred number of 6 million had been reached.

If he bombs WS and FRB the economy will be restored. If he bombs the UN and AIPAC the DOJ and legal system will be restored sufficiently to move to prosecute all the lawyers in and around government under RICO, which will take care of "career politicians" at all levels, including the FBI, CIA, NSA, NEA, FDA, DEA and both Hillary & Moochie's favorite, the USDA. Financially ruin the academic snake oil peddlers yourself.

...imperialism is not democracy

Democracy - a system of government by the whole population or all the eligible members of a state, typically through elected representatives.

Democracy is a system that describes how to vote.

Freedoms described in the articles of the U S Constitution have little to say about Democracy. This country was intended to be a land of FREEDOM for all citizens! Imperialism represents neither Freedom nor Democracy.

We go round and round about this.  The country never was intended to be a democracy.  It was intended to be a republic.  The democracy meme was sold by the Progressives.  Progressives were the trust fund babies of the 19th century middle class, the people who built this country.  These pampered adolescents embraced the romantic concept that human beings were a blank slate.  They assumed that whatever they were was a consequence of their environment.  All that was necessary to perfect humanity was to perfect the environment that they grew up in.  Every share cropper’s kid could be a rocket scientist if he just had an opportunity to go to school.  It became imperative that the omnipotent, omnipresent state create that opportunity for everyone. 

This is a secular religion.  There is absolutely no recognition of biological differences.  All cultures are equally relevant and must be embraced. No idea but their own is superior to another.  Everything is relevant.  Progressives are the heirs of Procrustes.  They will go to any extreme in an effort to make everyone equal. They would blow up the entire world in an effort to make the lone survivor equal.

More correctly, the US is a Constitutional Republic NOT a Democracy. The founding fathers deliberately avoided all mention of the word democracy to avoid "the tyranny of the majority" (a/k/a 3 wolves and 2 sheep deciding what's for dinner).

In a constitutional Republic the power resides with we the people. In theory. So the experiment in whatever it was is a complete fucking failure!!

Too much [[[English]]] investment after the Civil War led to an gross over expansion of USA's factories.  Thus 'white man's burden' and 'free markets' and imperialism.  By TR's time the outcome was inevitable.  

 

Once again, [[[debt]]] or [[[equity]]] financing drove over capacity, and led to our need for [[[empire]]].

 

And thus our experiment in freedom began to fail.

Democracy - a system of government by the whole population or all the eligible members of a state, typically through elected representatives.

There are different kinds of governments that hold elections.  The soviet union held elections, where people voted.  East Germany 1949-1990 was called "The German Democratic Republic."

Imperialism arose in America precisely because its "demos" was easy to usurp.  Monied interests starting usurping the country from practically the first days.  By the late 1800's the U.S. had already turned toward Imperialism when it engaged wars of conquest in the Philippines.  This was a far away land peopled by Asiatics, not Europeans.

Pettigrew, the first Senator from South Dakota had a ring side seat, and describes the mechanism in his book:

https://archive.org/details/triumphantpluto00pettrich

By 1913, U.S. body politic had been fully usurped, especially by the finance sector.  And yes, our ((friends)) were the main actors.  Pettigrew watched Senator Aldrich and other morally decrepit individuals maneuver to take over the country.  

In other words, democracy has shown itself to be a weak and failed form of government.  

Hungary's constitutional kingdom lasted nearly 1000 years.  This form of government had demos (the people) in the loop, as they voted for their king. The King in turn selected the upper house.  The lower house was elected by the people.  

This form of democracy showed itself to be immune from usurpation.  If upper and lower house couldn't get along, they were disbanded to try again.  If the King screwed up as shown by failed government, he would not get re-elected.  The King was checked and held by a a constitution. 

The founding fathers didn't get it right, as their representative democracy failed. We should be honest about the U.S., it failed and centralized on Washington.  It is no longer a republic. 

 Parasites went to work on destroying U.S. almost immediately after formation.  Mattis is mostly full of shit and not the brightest bulb on the tree.  The U.S. actually needs deep reform as it is rotted out from inside, and Mattis is defending the corrupt status quo.

re: "... he's just making up for what he never got as a child.".

 

Your 100% Correct on that 1 R_F_L.

'Mad Dog' is 1 motherf_ckin' sick puppy.

Probably never got one as a kid 'cause his parents figured he'd torture it to death, like he does with other people's lives since his marine-marriage.

No woman for him, just *de-creating no pro-creating* for him.

1 big sick puppy, Yeah.

"Hey Mad Dog, go eat your own shit like a good dog now.".

'eff him.  X-

Perhaps he wasn’t speaking to enemies “abroad” but rather the ones within. Maybe he was telling the “parkers of garbage trucks on tracks” to rethink their game because Trump ain’t f-ing around.

Those who would threaten America’s experiment in democracy must know if you threaten us, it will be your longest and worst day."

These military guys have had enough sons and daughters killed because of bankers. Yeah ... I think that’s who he’s warning.

Matttis = simple primitive man

he's just got a nice suit and  alot of money it seems  that 'justifies" somehow his  primitive small mind

 

Mattis and the US  in general  are Quite the contrast to  "business"/"industrialized" based china.

One looking forward and developing, the other primitive
