Throw enough goblins at a problem and it should go away. At the very least, there'll be fewer goblins.
Tychus Findlay: So how was it, Jimmy, fightin' them zerg?
Jim Raynor: All the scrapes we got into back in the day, all the narrow escapes, none of it compares to how terrible they are, Tychus. You don't know what true fear is till you've got a thousand of these sons of bitches barrelin' down on ya.

You let one ant stand up to us, and they ALL might stand up! Those "puny little ants" outnumber us a hundred to one. And if they ever figure that out, there goes our way of life!

Mikey: The Shredder thinks if he throws enough Foot ninja at a problem, it'll go away.
Breech: That's right. There'll be less Foot ninja for a start.

Every time we killed a thousand Bugs at a cost of one M.I. it was a net victory for the Bugs. We were learning, expensively, just how efficient a total communism can be when used by a people actually adapted to it by evolution; the Bug commisars didn't care any more about expending soldiers than we cared about expending ammo.
It doesn't matter. We're the Swarm; we can sacrifice thousands for each one of their soldiers.
