Well, I'm sure that if they are only sending 1,700 troops (and if the typical head/tail ratios apply, that means only 400-500 combat troops, the rest are logistics, command and support), that they are not your garden-variety infantry. These guys are either SEALS, Rangers, Marine Recon, or other such elite troops.

It will be Special Ops guys doing RECON, when they make contact they will radio a strike from the Marines Off shore. There's probably a LHD sitting off shore with about 900 Marines, when the RECON guys call the Marines will be ready to strike with Cobras, and Harriers.
