Ah yes, the tired old argument that 'You're betraying our boys in uniform' unless you keep expanding capability and cost forever. Well Commandant of the Marine Corps, the cuts are minimal. And you won't be able to do cool expeditionary stuff as well as you used to? Oh well. Too bad. How did Iraq work out for ya? Afghanistan? How many suicides? How many homeless vets?
