Marine Corps Gen. James Mattis has been selected to replace the globalist Gen. David Petraeus who was selected to replace Gen. Stanley McCrystal who made the mistake of dissing the anointed one, Barry Obama. Mattis will fill the post of CentCom commander previously occupied by Petraeus.
Gen. Mattis has the same habit of speaking his mind as McCrystal. Eric Garris  writes today that Mattis was quoted back in 2005 as saying he finds pleasure in shooting and killing people in Afghanistan. “Actually it’s quite fun to fight them, you know. It’s a hell of a hoot,” Mattis said, prompting laughter from some military members in the audience, CNN  reported on February 4, 2005. “It’s fun to shoot some people. I’ll be right up there with you. I like brawling.” Mattis, who commanded Marine expeditions in Afghanistan and Iraq, made the comments during a panel discussion in San Diego, California.
“You go into Afghanistan, you got guys who slap women around for five years because they didn’t wear a veil,” Mattis said. “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.”
Mattis was talking about the Taliban, an ultra-fanatical Wahhabi sect installed by the CIA and Pakistan’s ISI and funded by their Wahhabist brethren in Saudi Arabia. The Taliban “came from madrassas set up by the Pakistani government along the border and funded by the U.S., Britain, and the Saudis, where they had received theological indoctrination and military training,” writes Phil Gasper , a professor of Philosophy at Notre Dame de Namur University. “The Taliban’s brand of extreme Islam had no historical roots in Afghanistan.” It was planted there by the U.S., Pakistan, Britain, and Saudi Arabia.
Mattis led the attack on Fallujah, Iraq, in 2004. The attack violated Article 6(b) of the 1945 Nuremberg Charter  that describes the “wanton destruction of cities, towns or villages” as a war crime.
“Preliminary estimates as of December of 2004 revealed that at least 6,000 Iraqi citizens in Fallujah had been killed, and one-third of the city had been destroyed,” Peter Phillips and Project Censored  reported in 2006. “Countless violations of international law and crimes against humanity occurred in Fallujah during the November massacre,” including the mass slaughter of Iraqis and the use of illegal weapons such as cluster bombs, napalm, uranium munitions and chemical weapons. “According to Iraqis inside the city, at least 60 percent of Fallujah went on to be totally destroyed in the siege, and eight months after the siege entire districts of the city remained without electricity or water. Israeli style checkpoints were set up in the city, prohibiting anyone from entering who did not live inside the city. Of course non-embedded media were not allowed in the city,” writes Phillips.
“The last three times that that general has been in combat, when he was leading Marines in Afghanistan and the two times that he led his division in Iraq, his actions and those of his troops clearly show that he understands the value of proper leadership and the value of human life,” said Marine Gen. Peter Pace, vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, after Mattis made his comments about the joy he experiences after killing religious zealots installed by the CIA who slap their women around, a practice likely gleaned from instructional books  issued by USAID (an “aid” organization that works closely with the CIA ). Pace issued his praise after 6,000 Iraqi citizens were massacred in Fallujah.
“The post General Mattis is taking is a critical one at a critical time,” said Bush era retread Robert Gates after Mattis was selected. He described Gen Mattis as one of the military’s “outstanding combat leaders and strategic thinkers” and added that the “general’s insight” should be used in the future, presumably in Afghanistan, according to the BBC .
