    China might be more impressed by such declarations if obama weren't hell bent on gutting our military as they build up their navy.

    This is a good gig for the Marines.

    During times of a down economy, the cries of downsizing the military can be heard. One of the "obvious" branches to cut is the Marine Corps. Marine critics claim that the Army can do what the Marines do, so why do we even need a Marine Corps.

    Yet when the world dials 911, the U.S. Marines are the ones that answer.
