The Marines don't need armored vehicles right?

According to the cuts Gates is planning they don't!

Don't get me wrong I'm all for budget cuts in every program the government can get them from but c'mon! There are other places to cut the fat from the defense budget than equipment that's really needed!

  • Is there waste in the military? It's part of the government, so YES!

    Can the military be leaned out to be more efficient? YES.
