    Thumbs up to pin on the mat

    "To flip the whole matter of missile defence and pin it on the mat". What does "pin on the mat" mean in the above phrase?

    Re: to pin on the mat

    Probably comes from wrestling, where you pin your opponent to the mat [floor] of the ring in order to win a bout.
