From a senior US Marine Corps General:
"'Actually it's quite fun to fight them, you know. It's a hell of a hoot. It's fun to shoot some people. I'll be right up front with you, I like brawling,' said Lt Gen Mattis.Lieutenant General Mattis, who made the remarks, will not face any disciplinary action. Hearts and minds, folks, hearts and minds...
'You go into Afghanistan, you got guys who slap women around for five years because they didn't wear a veil,' Lt Gen Mattis said during a panel discussion.
'You know, guys like that ain't got no manhood left anyway. So it's a hell of a lot of fun to shoot them.'
The audience laughed and applauded after he made his remarks, which were shown on US television."
