Cooperation on Arctic and NATO

In a statement summarizing the meeting, White said Mattis and Gudlaugur Thor Thordarson discussed ways to increase U.S.-Iceland cooperation in the Arctic and NATO command structure reform.

“Secretary Mattis also expressed appreciation for Iceland’s additional investment in infrastructure upgrades to support U.S. and NATO missions,” White said.

        The great big giant tsunami wave, gaining strength every day, is going to wash across the country and send the Republican conservative a holes out to sea where they can use their AK-47s and there are AR-15s to paddle they're Fatheads to a deserted island where they can start a fascist country with Trump as their dictator.

          Swimming lessons are filling up with Republicans. They better learn to swim now or at least float. But wait, most have been floating on the top of Trumps sewer swamp, so the floaters might be okay. If swimming classes are full, the next best thing would be to fill your pockets with rocks and get it over quick.

    No, no, no. Mattis is one of the few people in the administration who knows what he is doing. If he quits, then only incompetents will remain.
