Defense Secretary Jim “Mad Dog” Mattis, has just shown the press why he is the best man for the job. At a press conference where a reporter tried to intimate that the US administration was “scared” of Russian responses to the Syrian airstrikes last week, Mad Dog not only answered confidently, but showed that America is ready for anything.
The last 8 years have been almost an embarrassment for the US on the world stage. With one “red line” crossed after another, funding the enemy (billions to Iran), paying terrorists for hostage release and generally being a toothless lion, the reputation of the US has suffered and caused her enemies to grow bolder.
But under the Trump administration, all this is changing. Other Super Powers are coming to the table and people at home are starting to feel pride in their nation’s responses once again.
When Trump was campaigning, he said “We’re going to win so much, you’re going to be sick of winning”. Despite a handful of disappointing reversals, Trump is managing to stay on message and get things done. It seems the press can’t keep their own personal narrative going any longer. Let’s see who breaks first.

REPORTER: “THE RUSSIANS HAVE BEEN VERY CLEAR IN THEIR RHETORIC. THEY’RE SAYING THAT ANOTHER RESPONSE LIKE YOU LAUNCHED ON APRIL 6TH WOULD BE [CROSSING] THE RED LINE FOR THEM. HOW ARE YOU SO CONFIDENT THAT THIS ISN’T GOING TO SPIRAL OUT OF CONTROL?”
JIM ‘MAD DOG’ MATTIS: “I’M CONFIDENT THE RUSSIANS WILL ACT IN THEIR OWN BEST INTERESTS, AND THERE’S NOTHING IN THEIR BEST INTEREST IF THIS SITUATION SPIRALS OUT OF CONTROL.”
