(Daily Caller) The current world order is under its greatest threat since World War II due to provocations from Russia, terrorism and other international actors, according to President-elect Donald Trump’s pick for secretary of defense James Mattis.

Mattis’s comments followed a question from GOP Sen. John McCain during the former Marine Corps general’s confirmation hearing Thursday.

“Do you believe that … world order is now under more strain than its ever been?” asked McCain.

“I think its under the biggest attack since World War II, sir,” replied Mattis. “And that’s from Russia, from terrorist groups and with what China is doing in the South China sea.”
