    Marine Coprs General Fired

    Exit another fighting gen. - NYPOST.com

    "Lost in the inaugural hullabaloo was Tuesday’s news that President Obama has relieved Gen. James “Mad Dog” Mattis, the colorful and highly decorated Marine who’s been in charge of the crucial US Central Command, which oversees the various wars in the Middle East, since 2010."

    General Mattis is not exactly a Perfumed Prince. He is a dedicated Marine to the hilt.

    Which is probably why Obama deemed his services no longer necessary. Can't have real fighting men making decisions about... you know, fighting...

    Yes, one thing the Pentagon needs is more generals.

    Perhaps he disagreed with making changes to physical fitness standards to allow more women into combat positions. He may have actually believed in looking for a few good men, instead of just many OK people.

    Re: Marine Coprs General Fired

    Would that be this 'firing':

    CENTCOM General James Mattis To Retire From Marine Corps | The Duffel Blog

    I could believe the New York Post and right wing blogs or I could believe 'The American military's most trusted news source' .

    Hmmm.....tough decision. Especially since the Duffel Blog has numerous quotes from the General on why he is retiring and the New York Post has.......nothing from him.

    You guys really are fun.

    i've shared a few gallons of coffee with the man, serving with him twice in my career.

    helluva Marine, a very intelligent guy to boot... the kind which are no longer appreciated by civilian leadership ( not that his sort was ever really appreciated by civilian leadership)

    he certainly not the kind that the faint of heart or the weak of will will get along with.
