Question of the day. Will the US military follow China's lead and use the Army for amphibious assaults?

If you watched the earlier vid then you know the Chinese Army Amphibious Troops and Marines are complimentary in their mission sets.

The Chinese Marines are generalist, are lightly equipped (although heavier than Berger's Marine Corps) and have an expeditionary role.

The Chinese Army's Amphibious Troops are MUCH heavier, and have an assault/forcible entry role.

Considering the fact that Amphibious Assault is probably the ONLY VIABLE (it will be costly though) form of forcible entry do you think that we could see the US Army adapt at least a division or two to the amphibious assault role?

Just because the Marine Corps has vacated that mission set does NOT mean its not essential.

What do you guys think?
