Far be it from me to disagree with a man who could kick my ass several times over and is a war hero, but that seems a little optimistic to me.
Talking with Fox News about the advancement of ISIS across the Middle East, Luttrell said the best thing we can do is let a marine garrison in Iraq “off their chains” and go after ISIS.
“I would let ’em go to work… With 300 Marines you could probably take over Iraq if you wanted to and get rid of ISIS completely. Make no mistake about it … Marines are really good at what they do.”
148,000 Americans were involved in the invasion of Iraq in 2003. Just saying… 300 seems a little low.
