The Marines have all the capabilities of the other services combined, as well as the gung-ho attitude of elite soldiers. That goes without saying.
I think what MSOC will add to JSOC is an integration of the various operational facets the other elite groups bring to the table from their respective
branches of the armed services, into the tried and true methods of Marine Corps combined arms maneuvers. The Marines were and are a big part of the
development of combined arms maneuvers, using air support, artillery, and naval bombardment to back up the grunts fighting it out in the trenches.
This experience and expertise will be an invaluable addition to JSOC as it strives to bring the necessary military power to bear on the elusive enemy
in the WOT.
Also, the Marines are used to doing more with less than the other branches of the military. SEAL Team Six alone had a bigger practice ammo budget
than the entire Marine Corps. Dick Marchenko was proud of that. I think MSOC will bring maximum fiscal utility to JSOC as well, another thing
sorely needed in the prosecution of the WOT, with deficits to fund it soaring and massive cuts in social programs and inhibited disaster response the
fallout here at home.
Not to mention the death and destruction and human misery the WOT is causing all over the world. The sooner it is over, the better. With Marine
methods now integrated into JSOC, our elite military units will now be even more lethal and effective.
Maybe they will even finally catch Bin laden and Zarqawi and the other elusive Al Quaida ringleaders.
