    In a surprise move, President-elect Donald Trump announced on Thursday that retired Marine Corps General James ‘Mad Dog’ Mattis is his pick for secretary of defense.

    'Mad Dog' to Rule the Pentagon

    The former head of US Central Command, Mattis was a central figure in the US invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq. He is known for his strong anti-Iran stance and blunt words, one of the most popular quotes being "Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet", the motto he expected US Marines to follow in Iraq.
