No one messes with the mad dog. During a recent visit to Capitol Hill, Defense Secretary James Mattis issued a stern and ominous warning to any nation which would threaten the United States.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Mattis: ‘If You Threaten Us, It Will Be Your Longest and Worst Day’
“Those who would threaten America’s experiment in democracy must know if you threaten us, it will be your longest and worst day,” Mattis told the House Armed Services Committee in congressional testimony.
Mattis was on Capitol Hill to brief lawmakers on the Trump administration’s recently released National Defense Strategy and Nuclear Posture Review. The Pentagon chief said that his priority is to make the military more lethal, but warned about the dangers that the U.S. faces without a House budget proposal that includes full funding for the Department of Defense for the next fiscal year.
“Our first line of effort emphasizes that everything we do must contribute to the lethality of our military,” Mattis said. “In war, an enemy will attack a perceived weakness; therefore, we cannot adopt a single preclusive form of warfare. Rather, we must be able to fight across the spectrum of combat. This means the size and composition of our force matters.”
