This is a GLOBAL war on Terrorism. The globe is 70% water. It is not confined to land warfare. Had 3 Marine/Army humvees been rolling through Iraq or Afghanistan and 5 insurgent vehicles approached spewing threats and taunts over the radio and dropping 'packages' that could be bombs in front of the convoy...they would have been blown to hell in seconds and it would have never made the news. There is no difference here and the Navy needs to train to fight that battle.Not a perfect comparison - but one worth thinking about.
