  1. That was a speech worthy of historical reference.

  2. This is what democracy looks like
    No blue no red only Americans Together

  3. I love how no Trumpkins haven’t bothered commenting here. Chickenhawks, just like Cadet Bone Spurs

    • Mr. Peterson hell yeah. We only fight wars where trump
      Doesn’t have a financial interest. Hi Iran!

    • @Aaron Ledet are we fighting Iran? You’re simplistic and juvenile. President Trump will use the military to defend the vital national interests of the USA and to preserve the liberty of her people. Nothing more, nothing less.

    • @Mr. Peterson Whataboutwhataboutwhatabout- stop. There is a reality here that you can’t deny. There was no border dispute because US forces were there. Turkey isn’t going to risk injuring US forces. While we were there, Turkey was going to do NOTHING. Even if we had some UN forces to replaces ours the same situation would apply. Also, citation needed on the whole “Marxist Kurds” thing.

    • Rowdy422 juvenile? I’m a lawyer and a member of the bar. You sir, are a neophyte in foreign policy. I will never support a president who puts his financial interests above those of the American people. We are biting at the bit to kick all of your asses out of the country. Let me guess your demographic……old fat white dude in the mid west or the plains.

  4. His record speaks for itself he doesn’t have to worry about what individual one says.

    Trump isn’t worthy to hold this great mans “strap”!

    • Henry Mc Donald – don’t worry about that super troll…he’s been making loser comments all over this video

    • Not EVEN.

      Dwight Eisenhower was a general during World War II, Ulysses Grant was a general during the Civil War, and George Washington was a general during the Revolutionary War. They knew what went on behind the scenes. Heck, it was Eisenhower that alerted us of the military industrial complex

  6. This is what a real patriot sounds like.

    I’ve met and served under him there truly is no greater honor.

    • @Dante Solaris people that talk to maggots are quite rare but I like you anyway 🙂

      @Poule Dodue So are you saying that multiculturalism is bad? Why? Because multiculturalism means different skin colors and languages and traditions and ideas? I come from a place that is extremely multicultural, and I can tell you it is a blessing.

      @Billy Yonet I don’t think Dicky Jones is of age to work for a trump troll farm yet.

    Now THIS is how a real man responds to comments made by an illiterate imbecile. With Class & wit, something the puppet of Putin does NOT have!

  9. *I earned my spurs on the battlefield while he earned his spurs in a letter from his doctor.* Wow! Just 😯 wow! 👏

    • That was a better burn than any joke in Donald trumps roast.

    • Epic statement

      BEST ANSWER EVER!
      YES GENERAL THOSE OF US WHO RISK OUR OWN LIFE IN BATTLE WONDER HOW IS IT ANYONE WHO HAD THE HONOR TO WEAR THE UNIFORM CAN EVER BE SEEN AS ANYTHING LESS THAN PATRIOTIC BY THOSE WHO BELIEVE EVERY HATEFUL LIE THAT COMES OUT OF THAT RUSSIAN ASSET SITTING IN THE WHITE HOUSE MOUTH!
      I NEVER FELT THIS SAYING TO BE MORE TRUE ” TRUMP NOT GOOD ENOUGH TO HOLD FROM GENERAL MATTIS DOWN TO THE LOWEST RANKING SOLDIERS JOCK STRAPS”

      TRUMP NEVER EARNED ANYTHING IN HIS LIFE EXCEPT A FREE TRIP AND NEW FOREVER HOME IN FT LEVINWORTH KANSAS! ONCE TRIED FOR BEING THE GREATEST RUSSIAN AGENT IN THE HISTORY OF RUSSIA!

      RET TSGT PEREZ

    • Bigley WOW. Yuge WOW. Most WOWs in the history of WOWs!

    • Gen. Mattis is BOSS and has empathy and morals ❤

  10. I loved Meryl Streep in the Deer Hunter. A movie about honor and courage. None of which trump is.

  11. He has a good sense of humour. I did not know that about him

  12. Encouraging to know that there are men like James Mattis in the military.

    • We need more people like Mattis and McRaven in our country. If you’ve never heard of McRaven, I recommend you watch his “Make Your Bed” speech

    • jennifer perez | October 18, 2019 at 11:21 AM | Reply

      From the military, Yes he is a real man!

    • Tom Martin be careful man I like Mattis as well but he is a warmonger dude. Great personality and a Christian but he sees America’s duty to fight the worlds wars.

    • @avery kerley He embodies Teddy Rosevelt’s “Big Stick” policy. Mattis resigned over Trump’s misuse of the military. Over provoking Iran for no reason, over the Syria debacle. He isn’t a warmonger but he isn’t afraid to exert our influence to kill bad people and save innocents. Our politicians are war mongers; we need Generals like Mattis who see the people on the ground as people, not numbers.

    Mad Dog has a sense of humor. A side of him that we are fortunate to see.

  14. We salute you General Mattis for your years of service.

    • PEACE to all my military families THANK you for your sacrifice for me. A NOBODY. AGAIN THANK YOU ALL FOR MY FREEDOM. TRUMPUTIN IS. IS DESTROYING THE CONSTITUTION FOR RUSSIA. SO SEND TRUMP TO RUSSIA ONE WAY ONLY.

    This guy is a legend. Respect to this man, above all others.

  16. Roasting aside this man speaks harsh truth and does so sincerely.

    • This mattis punk is responsible for the deaths of thousands of innocent brown people in the middle east. Just cause Hitler tell a funny joke that doesn’t automatically make him a good guy.

      Dingus when you refer to those that died as “brown people” you lose a lot of credibility in your comment that you actually care about what happened to them.

  17. This is a man of integrity and an incredible human being.

  18. I hope a lot of Americans and humans in general hear this.

  19. I didn’t realize this guy was such a badass…

    • You’re just not used to a proper well-thought speech anymore XD Jk, jk, but you are correct. This man has a combination of qualities that most people wish they had and strive for! His speech was worth watching *every second* . I was also surprised – not being American or anything – as I didn’t have any particular idea whom this gentleman truly was aside from status. : ) Very pleasantly surprised!

    I LOVE that he refused to dignify Trump with the title of president.
