I’m watching FNC’s Hannity and Colmes just now. And I’m about to watch a segment about Marine Lt. Gen. Mattis comments last week about “taking pleasure” in killing Islamofascists. I was quite taken aback by Alan Colmes’ comment at the start of the show, to the effect “can you believe some people are actually supporting Gen. Mattis?”

Well, I can believe it, because I do. We need our Dogs of War. We need to maintain their leash; that is the whole idea behind civilian control of the military. But we need to know that, once unleashed, they will not equivocate when it comes to destroying our enemy. I believe we can have absolute faith in Gen. Mattis.
