Now, we have the first indication that top neocon barker, Bill Kristol, likes the Mad Dog. Kristol tweeted out the news that a dead man supported Mattis for president:
The late Peter Schramm, on Gen. Jim Mattis: "Surely in times like these there was more work for such a man to do.” https://t.co/SJlfAiBYKE— Bill Kristol (@BillKristol) April 17, 2016
The female warmonger, Rebeccah Heinrichs, also tweeted support for Mad Dog:
In support of Mattis in a Republican brokered convention, she made clear that Hillary and Obama are not warmonger enough (emphasis in original):
President Obama’s tepid warfighting, his (and Hillary Clinton’s) inability to even utter the name of our foes, let alone their motives, his emotionless responses after horrific acts of terror, and his satisfaction with loserdom against a winnable foe have left a bulk of the American citizenry yearning for a strong leader who is unwilling to lose...-RW
[A]s a recently retired general, he testified before the Congress and said, “Specifically, if this threat to our nation is determined to be as significant as I believe it is, we may not wish to reassure our enemies in advance that they will not see American ‘boots on the ground’…If a brigade of our paratroopers or a battalion landing team of our Marines would strengthen our allies at a key juncture and create havoc/humiliation for our adversaries, then we should do what is necessary with our forces that exist for that very purpose.”
Catch that? Strengthen our allies and humiliate our adversaries. These objectives seem to have been underappreciated during the Bush years and inversely pursued during the Obama years.
