Callin' it like it is 

Lt. Gen. James Mattis, a career infantry officer who is now in charge of developing better ways to train and equip Marines, made the comments Tuesday while speaking to a forum in San Diego.

According to an audio recording, he said, "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."

He added, "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."
The Main Stream Media outlets are already pissing their diapers over this one. If it has happened already and I missed it, I wouldn't be shocked, but I give this 24 hours before somebody says this is "As bad as abu Gharib." I just heard somebody on the radio say this will only enrage arabs even more against America.

Even more? Jeez, how pissed off can they get? I figured they had the meter pegged by now.

Besides, he's a Marine. What the hell did you expect him to say? That he wanted to invite these guys over for tea, scones, and backrubs? Hasn't the MSM cracked the code by now that Marines kill people and break things? That's part of the job description, after all.
