One of the first decrees signed by US President 45 Donald Trump was a decree confirming his position as head of the military department, General James Mattis, nicknamed “Mad Dog”. After being confirmed in office, Mattis made a series of statements about his own tasks as head of the Pentagon.


Addressing the generals of the military department, Mattis said that it was time to take measures to strengthen alliances with different states. From the statement of James Mattis (translation Interfax):
Every action that we take will be aimed at ensuring that our armed forces are ready to conduct combat operations today and in the future. Given that no country can be safe without friends, we will work together with the State Department to strengthen our alliances.


"Crazy Dog" promised to extract the full value of each "defense" dollar

Mattis takes office


According to General Mattis, his service as head of the Pentagon will be carried out "with maximum effort." An important statement by the new US Secretary of Defense was a statement about taking measures to "extract the full value of every dollar coming from taxpayers."

Minister:
Thus, by extracting the full value of every dollar spent by taxpayers on defense, we will gain the confidence of both the Congress and the American people.


Earlier, Mattis gained fame thanks to harsh statements about the "main opponents" of the United States and uncompromisingly executing orders from the high command. The nickname stuck ...

    The main thing is that they wouldn’t extract blood and territories of other nations. How have you been doing this for centuries.

If the conditions of the USA set us, and not us, then of course we are part of the USA. Otherwise, we would simply ignore them. And if we obey them, then we can’t ignore it.

        And the farewell sounds polonaise
        Goodbye Obama and Michelle,
        Return to your fairytale forest.
        Don’t be sad, smile goodbye
        Remember these days, remember
        Here are our wishes come true
        Goodbye, Obama, goodbye.

        Trump all wish success
        And more in lead clips,
        To Obama a nightmare echo
        He erased in America to the end.
        Bye, ISIS, bye,
        Islamic tale goodbye
        To shine Ivanka with Melania,
        Pour your glass to the brim.

        Congratulations friends
        We now have hope.
        We load buckshot

      07. 10. Martira! The main thing he said. He is for alliances with the United States, and will continue to support this policy in order to strengthen our alliances. That is the trick. We would (Russia) so. And then we scream more that we will not feed half the world as the USSR. Well, that’s the result. We have no friends and unions, but partners are a dime a dozen. So the seizure of other territories will continue. But under the flag of alliances with the United States. Well done USA! They are able to competently promote their interests. And do not be shy about it. But we, Russia, do not claim to be the leading power. But the United States claims and is not at all embarrassed by this. Trump bluntly says: I will work in the interests of America. And what does our Putin say? In whose interests does he work in galleys? And what gesture does he have about his payment! 1 dollar a year! Will ours be able to repeat this in relation to themselves? Yes, he gave the business to his sons. But still. Work for 1 dollar. This is patriotism!

      He is the Minister of Defense, which is why he said about the benefits for defense. "Who else," Trump and other ministers will tell. But he will hardly be able to stop cutting the budget on military orders.

    As the minister in charge of the country's defense, he said only what any sane person in such an important post should say. This is a signal to those bigwigs who are accustomed to cash in on military orders, a signal that they will now have to account for every dollar spent. In my opinion, this is correct. We would have resolved issues in this way, then Progress would have fallen less often, and Yars would have had no need for hydraulic systems. You have to be stricter in matters of defense - that's what "Mad" said.

      In our country, according to Federal Law 44, this is very tightly controlled. On separate accounts, the expenditures for the State Defense Order are tracked, up to the very last carnation. Terribly inconvenient, I must say, but I think it is impossible otherwise. But with "them" it is not so.

      So far, he has not decided any questions - so far all are just words. It is extremely difficult, and most likely impossible, to stop such a "sawmill" of the state budget for defense orders, as in the United States.

    Causes of Night Blindness
    The disease develops due to a violation of the ratio between the number of cones and rods in the human eye, a decrease in the number of rods or structural disorders in their structure, as well as due to a deficiency or metabolic disorder of the visual pigment rhodopsin contained in the rods.
    It is customary to distinguish the following types of night blindness:
    congenital;
    essential;
    symptomatic;
    perestroika;
    post-perestroika

    No, but what did he have to say. Gentlemen, do not worry. We will continue to take the budget, but we will tell everyone how successfully we do it? A public person differs from a non-public person in that all his words become known, and even every word is dissected. Therefore, we often hear machine-gun lines of slogans, and not at all what people really think wassat

    In a variant:
    "Thus, extracting the full value of every 'ruble' spent by taxpayers on defense," ... education, infrastructure, healthcare, science ...
    ... you can nail "our" officials to the door .... Fewer flash mobs, shows, forums, seligers, research institutes of all sorts of crap, glamorous lady colonels for speeches. and so on ... more fittings, pilots, inventions, MRI machines, roads of "German quality and value" ... For his country, Mattis TOLD (!) everything is correct ... Although the Pentagon budget is constantly rubbing its "Vasilyevs".

    Are you going to rake again?
    In all military-industrial complexes, all funds are capitalized completely and without a trace - the trouble is that sometimes nuts and bolts cost as much as if they were made of gold. It was always and everywhere, and if he can handle it, he’s a genius, but he is not the first trying.

    07. 10. Martira! The main thing he said. He is for alliances with the United States, and will continue to support this policy in order to strengthen our alliances. That is the trick. We would (Russia) so. And then we scream more that we will not feed half the world as the USSR. Well, that’s the result. We have no friends and unions, but partners are a dime a dozen. So the seizure of other territories will continue. But under the flag of alliances with the United States. Well done USA! They are able to competently promote their interests. And do not be shy about it. But we, Russia, do not claim to be the leading power. But the United States claims and is not at all embarrassed by this. Trump bluntly says: I will work in the interests of America. And what does our Putin say? In whose interests does he work in galleys? And what gesture does he have about his payment! 1 dollar a year! Will ours be able to repeat this in relation to themselves? Yes, he gave the business to his sons. But still. Work for 1 dollar. This is patriotism!

    They support you completely. We are the main enemy, not abroad, but in ourselves. There are already so many sofa commentators about your hut. If only we were good to defend and support friends, and even brothers in blood and faith , by the will of fate, and the betrayal of the authorities of Russia, and Gorbachev suddenly found themselves abroad, let others do it. And as a result, we have what we have. We are even ashamed of openly speaking about the help of New Russia. Isn’t it shameful?
