Candidate for the post of head of the Pentagon has put Russia on a par with ISIS



Russia and Iran benefit from the chaos in Syria, and are on a par with terrorists – this statement was made by the candidate on a post of the head of the Pentagon James Mattis. His words convey the Rambler/news, citing the New York Times.

“The brutal civil war in Syria has destabilized the middle East, have contributed to the destabilization of Europe and has become a threat to allies such as Israel, Jordan and Turkey, and that while the “Islamic state” (organization banned in Russia – the Rambler/news), Iran and Russia benefit from this chaos, which does not serve the national interests of America,” said Mattis.

His statement to the General of the marine Corps have made during his speech, a speech in the U.S. Senate.

Mattis for appointment to the civilian post of head of the Pentagon must obtain special permission of Congress. This rule was introduced to distinguish the civilian leadership of the Ministry and military leadership of the Armed forces of the United States.

General James Mattis for more than 25 years he served in the U.S. armed forces. He is known for his outrageous statements, in particular once Mattis said that he “is darn fun to shoot some people”.
