Marine Corps general: "It's fun to shoot some people"

"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." --Lt. Gen. James Mattis, a career infantry officer who is now in charge of developing better ways to train and equip Marines, speaking to a forum yesterday in San Diego

As Donald Rumsfeld said, "You go to war with the army you have." And we have one sick army.

Well I blogged on this too - and while my site brings the full context of what was said your post seems to have removed some important context of his speech. If you're going to quote someone please do so in context, and not just pick and choose the phrases you want just to prove some absurb point you are trying to make.

There will always be people like me to make the full story known!
