You can say what you will about the Donald and some of his cabinet members. One thing you can’t deny though is the sheer epic-ness of Defense Secretary James “Mad Dog” Mattis. The Mad Dog is a grade-A badass and we should thank the Lord every day he’s on our side.
Here he is talking about the strength of the US military:
Secretary Mattis during his discussion with @BretBaier: “I’m not paid to be optimistic or pessimistic. I maintain a military that is second to none with the fervent hope that we won’t have to employ it, but I have no doubt about the outcome if we must.” pic.twitter.com/mUydtucGDf

The message here is clear. Here in the U-S-of-A, we’re mostly a peace-loving people. We aren’t looking for a scrap. On the other hand, if some international douche-nugget decides to try us, we’ll have no problem bitch-slapping their asses into oblivion. America!
It’s only common sense for our military to be second-to-none. Think of high school. Do you recall seeing the linemen from the football team getting pushed around on a daily basis? No, it was the scrawny, four-eyed kid with asthma getting atomic wedgies and spending most of freshman year stuffed in a locker. Nobody would dare screw with the big kid.
The mentality of “peace through strength” is the reason no sane person would try to engage America in fisticuffs. It’s why the Soviet Union is on the trash heap of history and Russians are now free to wear blue jeans without interference.
No matter how big or small foreign threats may be, having a strong national defense is always a winning strategy. Fortunately for us, we have a Defense Secretary who understands this, as opposed to an ex-hippie soy weakling who thinks if we throw down all our boomsticks, the rest of the world will follow. Thank God for the Mad Dog.
While we’re on the subject of American superiority:
