Chaos for SecDef?

Rumors abound, but in addition to Sen. Tom Cotton (R), twice deployed combat veteran (101 ABN and JTAF Gamberi FOB), Ranger, CIB, Airborne/Air Assault, Bronze Star Senator from Arkansas and early Trump supporter... is the man simply known as Chaos.

General James "Mad Dog" Mattis (aka Chaos), USMC (Ret) has a reputation for many things... perhaps best known for the following:
"I come in peace. I didn't bring artillery. But I'm pleading with you, with tears in my eyes: If you fuck with me, I'll kill you all"-Mattis #mattisisms

 "Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet." #mattisisms

"No war is over until the enemy says it's over. We may think it over, we may declare it over, but in fact, the enemy gets a vote."  #mattisisms

"Demonstrate to the world there is 'No Better Friend, No Worse Enemy' than a U.S. Marine. " #Mattisisms

USMC COIN: "a country that armed Stalin to defeat Hitler can certainly work alongside enemies of al-Qaida to defeat al-Qaida." #mattisisms
The morale of the entire military, shot to hell because of being led by a clueless moron who literally hates us; gutted and played with like a social test tube experiment, would take off like a rocket.

Like Trump will roll back all of Obama's insanity by executive order; either Chaos or Cotton would do the same by fiat, resulting in, essentially, an immediate increase in mission readiness/capability merely by the presense of either.

This is a rough business.  And it should be ran by rough men, men with a proven record. These two have it.
