A Voice Of Reason: CDR Salamander On Syria And Mattis

He is always worth a read...This Christmas Eve, everyone calm down. We're fine.

We're all going to be just fine. I've been a Mattis guy since 2001, but SECDEF is a position for a politician, not a Field Marshall. Even though I have 100% trust in him for any position he may find himself in, Mattis was never quite well suited for the position of SECDEF as it was designed. He had to get a waiver for a reason. I am still a Mattis guy and I wish him well.
His hair isn't on fire. Weird!
