Is Obama Always Faithful to our Marines?

The current political winds in Washington, DC, have dictated that less will be spent on the various Branches of the Armed Forces of the Unites States.

Case in point: the Commander-in-Chief has decided to fire 20,000 of our U.S. Marines.

In an article published by San Diego, California's North County Times, ironically on Thanksgiving Day, Military Affairs reporter Gretel C. Kovach cites;

"The Corps is shrinking by 20,000 Marines, to 182,100."

The North County Times also cited that America's premier fighting force is;

"scraping to repair or replace battle-worn equipment."

In spite of the Nobel Peace Prize award winning Obama ordering a recent surge in combat troops the Afghanistan theater of war, Kovach also pointed out that America's beloved Marine Corps is still to be slashed by roughly 20 percent;

"despite no sign of an enemy collapse."

So What Will The Taxpayers Money Be Spent On?

Earlier this week, Breitbart.com covered the recent agreement Barack Obama has promised billions of Yankee dollars to the oil-rich and overwhelmingly Muslim nations of Indonesia and Brunei.

As reported, $6,000,000,000 worth of American taxes has been promised to the two neighboring nations to promote "green energy."

Many green energy companies in the United States, such as Solyndra and About Solar have been dismal failures despite the over $1,200,000,000 infusion of tax dollars from the Obama Administration.

That's still 162,000 more marines than are actually needed. If it was up to me the USMC would be disbanded, it's personnel rolled into the most appropriate branch for their MOS, and the overwhelming majority of their completely obsolete junk would be scrapped.

The US Army can do anything the USMC can do at least as well, including amphibious assault.

Operation Overlord made that abundantly clear.

I'd also roll the USN SEALs into the US Army as well.

For years before 9/11, the USMC was 170,000 or so large. It was enlarged because we were fighting two wars. Now that there are no Marines in Iraq, and we're slated to withdraw from Afghanistan in 2014, it makes sense to get back down to normal operating size. I read about this happening years ago: http://www.marinecorpstimes.com/news/201...s_071310w/

The USMC is supposed to be 3 divisions. Only in the world of washington pork does a 3 division force become 170,000 strong to begin with.

What do the Marines have to do with Muslim Green energy?

1. Our military budget is too large. Iraq is finished and A-stan is winding down. The force reduction makes sense.

2. Why the hell are we giving those countries this type of aide is beyond me. It is a separate issue from the USMC force reduction.
A gun rack in a pick-up is not for holding guns. Its a place for women to hold on to. Smile

With our current economy why are we giving money to any other countries?

I don't agree with giving any money to any company, but at the same time, I'm not sad to see the military personnel being cut. the country is bankrupt so EVERYTHING needs to be on the table when it's time to try and balance a budget.

Being a branch of the Navy, technically the Marines are allowed according to the Constitution. There is no authority to maintain a standing army.
