What a bad ass

"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.... 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."
óJames Mattis, Speech in San Diego, 2005

"I come in peace. I didn't bring artillery. But I'm pleading with you, with tears in my eyes: If you **** with me, I'll kill you all."
óJames Mattis, Message to the Iraqi leaders

"Be Polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet."
óJames Mattis

That's probably the reason why he didn't really stand a chance of becoming Commandant

According to the article, his ideas and plans in Iraq either weren't implemented or didn't work when Fallulah erupted after the hangings of the security contractors.

What has Mattis done since? Has his rhetoric panned out or is it all talk?
