    “Marines need to learn when to fight with weapons and when to fight with information, humanitarian aid, economic advice, and a boost toward good governance for the local people.”

    Wow. I don’t think Marines are really trained for that.

    Nate: Marines have been training for and thinking about these matters for a long, long time. Perhaps you should do a little research on the Corps before you comment. Start with Combined Action Platoons, the Small Wars Manual and work from there.
