We need warriors like Lt. General Mattis

RIGHT WINGNUTHOUSE: THAT'S WHY THEY'RE MARINES. A very apt statement about why we need warriors (whether Army, Marine, Navy, Airforce doesn't matter).
What all this boils down to is something we civilians are very uncomfortable in trying to deal with. And that is, very simply, we need whole bunches of people like General Mattis if we're going to win.
Is anyone surprised that people like their choosen field? Or that a US Marine may not have the political correctness that left would like to see imposed on everyone? He's a Marine, and his job is (at least in part) to kill the enemies of the United States. "You don't win wars by dying for your country; you win wars by making the other poor SOB die for his country."
