52. They should train properly then
First off if they were truly concerned with "protecting" our rights the Patriot Act would not have passed, so please don't be insulting by using Bush talking points.

Secondly, you train as you will fight, unless the Marines are being trained to fight in US urban settings this is just a waste of time and money.

How about using NTC at Ft Irwin, lot of land out there where an actual Iraqi or Afghan town could be built, if they're going to spend the money they might as well spend it training the right way!

One last thing it's the responsibility of all Americans to protect their rights not just the military, who do you think started the fight for freedom, it was the citizens of the 13 colonies, not the military.
