Has the two fronted war on terror really broken the Marine Corps? Will our country be OK without it?

  • This has been scuttlebutt for a long time now. First in '03 it was "if this goes on longer then 2 years the Corps won't be able to withstand it." and now it's " Oh the Corps is so done now! They just can't do it anymore." Well that was in '07 and guess what, the Marines are still here!

  • I love how the following almost always seems to occur when it comes to questions involving conspiracy or a danger to our way of life:

    1. It's always an anonymous poster.
    2. They never provide a source link.

  • makelineerror it's been all over the Marine Corps from higher ranking officers down to vets in a VA waiting room. There's been speculation since the GWOT started as to how long the Marine Corps is going to be able to hold out in it's current policies and tactics and still manage to exist and get the job done. There will always be speculation, if not from the standpoint of drawn out war then from the standpoint of whether the general public still needs the Corps around.

    But that's all it is, scuttlebutt and speculation. Nothing more credible will ever materialize.

  • Can't help you there. Maybe you should go to a military group to discuss it.
