This is better

"The British were chickens, but these new men. . .These American Marines. . . They fight like animals, like they're not even human."

- Intercepted radio transmission from Taliban commander after losing Karamanda to 1st Battalion 2nd Marines, Afghanistan 2010

While we ponder that thought in respectful, joyous appreciation, some quotes about the United States Marine Corps. For example:

"I come in peace, I didn't bring artillery. But I am pleading with you with tears in my eyes: If you fuck with me, I'll kill you all."
- Marine General James Mattis, to Iraqi tribal leaders


  1. To delight in war is a merit in the soldier, a dangerous quality in the captain, and a positive crime in the statesman. Santayana

  2. The General has exactly the right out look according to his statement. I would just add one little thing for the generals strategists... If you find yourself in a fair fight your tactics suck!
