Even though the XO was a traitor, he was the only turncoat. The plot seemed unreasonable: doesn't a battleship even on a skeleton crew have tons of weapons, Marines, sailors who would fight back (other than just the Cook/SEAL S.Seagal)

That was another ridiculous angle. He was a Navy Chief PO and the XO treats him like dogshit: there would be more military courtesy between the two

the irony is that the end of Nam in 73, the draft in 75 and the professionalization of the military made for an incredibly professional and effective conventional force by 85 that could've held back and (most-likely) defeated the Red Army hordes in a central european slug fest.

The lop-sided Gulf War 1 results are the direct fruit of those efforts

I think there was a cleaning up of all the fuckheads who stayed on afterwards (i.e., the Recon Marines in Heartbreak Ridge)

There were also racial issues that needed to be cleaned up in the immediate post-Nam military

But at the same time the human capital wasn't that great, esp in the officer corps, even if the heart was in the right place. I think USMA took every qualified candidate in like 79' or something, guys who became field grade in the 90s and beyond

fairpoint w/r/t the caliber of the officer corps entrance classes from 73-78 (ironically, Mattis was part of that cadre). Thankfully they had enough subsequent real-combat experience and the huge 78-90 conventional force buildup to separate the wheat from the chaff.

most of the fuckheads (draftees) were out by 76. This movie was made in 86 and is supposed to be 83. At that point you had an all-volunteer professional force for 7+ years. Most were in it for the GI Bill and/or a career.

i think the force you note in 85' that was rock solid was the NCO Corps, particularly in the Army/Marines. the senior NCOs there were ones who had seen actual combat against decent enemies (i.e., Vietnam) and decided to make a commitment to the military.

Mattis' heart is in the right place. There's some shade about how he's probably gay but even if he is, it seems like it never led to anything (and I respect a gay man even more who rejects his urges).

At the same time, he's just not a thinker. Despite the warrior monk moniker, he just is over his head when it comes to higher level analysis of policy, politics, or future military strategy. That sort of typifies the flag officers we have now who are coming from that era

As to the leadership amongst officers (even NCOs) we're gonna get in like 20-30 years, God help us

your point about the NCO corps is spot on. the careerists who started out a teenage draftees in Vietnam created some of the finest ground combat forces ever fielded.

w/r/t Mattis, read his book "Call Sign Chaos". It's breezy and business school-style, but very enjoyable

i'll read it.

i have to admit i have a little bit of a bias against Mattis based on what little I know about him (which is taken with a grain of salt, as it is all hearsay from others. i never met or served w the guy)

like that incident that was popularized on Generation Kill. where he took the pistol/ammo (?) from Col Dowdy seemed like it was just showmanship. an Army unit was chewed up in Nasiriyah right beforehand; Dowdy wanted to show caution, Mattis didn't. usually these things turn out OK because our enemies--like the Iraqis in OIF--were pretty incompetent. but doctrinally, we did a lot of retarded and reckless shit, including invading with an undermanned force for the task.

IRL i wouldn't say this as its kind of a woman thing to do but it's xo so whatever. he's very good at charming the brass from what i heard. maybe thats the gay flamboyant side of him. i also heard rumors too that during his teenage hitchhiking years, he must have been groomed by some older men leading to his homosexuality.

People thought our military was a joke in the 1980s and well into the 1990s. They made all kinds of movies like Stripes that poked fun at the military and made it look like shit. In Red Dawn we couldn't defend against a Russian invasion.
