Globeite Doug Saunders still can't tell a US Marine from a soldier

And his paper is still unwilling to have his reportorial, er, inadequacies noted. I guess even short, if not too sweet, doesn't cut the Globe and Mail's defensive mustard. Further to this post,
Globeite Doug Saunders doesn't know US Army battalions, or brigade combat teams, from...
another letter sent to the paper on a similar point and, oddly enough, also not published:
Doug Saunders writes (NATO weighs Taliban truce in plans for Afghan peace, Jan. 26) that recently "...U.S. President Barack Obama authorized the deployment of an additional 30,000 U.S. Marines in Afghanistan." Hardly. The president in fact approved a total U.S. force increase of around 30,000--of which some 10,000 will be Marines. It would be refreshing if the European bureau chief of "Canada's National Newspaper" showed a rather greater familiarity with the facts.
