Mattis On ISIS: We Have Shifted From Obama ‘Attrition’ Strategy To ‘Annihilation’ Strategy (Video)
At last somebody with cajones! Annihilation is a word that literally means reduced to nothing. There is no better meaning for the intended purpose of this mission. I’ve been waiting years for a US military leader to utter those words! Go get’em, Mad Dog!
