    Strategy that is solely military is not likely to give results of lasting impact. Strategy that is politically and diplomatically based is a much better bet…but of course not nearly as exciting. So which approach belongs with the dinosaurs?

    @logicalone

    I believe that more a tactic than a strategy.

    The Marines make their own strategy.

    Give the chickenhawk politiians sidearms and send them in to get all the “bad guys” themselves. Diplomacy might actually be found to be viable then?

    If Deering wants to go to war and send his sons, that’s fine. But not me nor mine.

    “The Marines make their own strategy.”

    You totally ignored Martens’ point. A military only strategy will only return short-term gains that are only sustained by more military action. We need a long term strategy.

    “There you go! Syria has beaches, just like Somalia.”

    And we’ve certainly turned Somalia into a Libertarian Paradise, where self made warlords run the show instead of a bunch of a bunch of petty bureaucrats, elected by the sheeple…

    The Marines are good soldiers and do what they are told by the comander in chief.

    @Jase99

    Wrong again… I didn’t ignore it or there would not have been a reply…duh!

    just cause you don’t understand the strategy, doesn’t make it wrong.

    obviously you two don’t understand the Marines.

    @logicalone

    And maybe you don’t know the difference between tactics and strategy…

    @logicalone

    Perhaps you don’t understand the Marines, my father was a Marine. Do you know what branch of the military the Marines belong to?

    The point is, someone’s sons will eventually go. It’s starting to sound like the “No boots on the ground” is being modified, oh so gradually, to eliminate the word “no”,
    which is unfortunate. In the meantime, it would be better to have a strategy beyond announcing that we underestimated our
    enemy de jour -that, along with “We didn’t see
    ( fill in the blank ) coming” are wearing pretty thin as excuses from the intelligence community.
