US Marine Corps Is Deathly Afraid It Doesn’t Have a Role to Play Against China

The only aspect of the Corps that is being increased – and it’s a huge increase – is land based anti-ship missiles. Clearly, the Commandant views the Marine’s main mission, now, as sea control which, as we’ve discussed, is an idiotic concept that is simply not viable.

Even the F-35/aviation side of the Corps is going to take a substantial hit. Previous Commandants sacrificed the ground element to promote the aviation side and now it appears that, too, is fading, all so that the Commandant can attempt to take over a Navy mission in a bid to remain budget-relevant in the face of the China threat. The irony is that the sea control mission will actually make the Marines irrelevant.
