even with that, you can't say that someone with a higher rank in marine is stronger than another marine with a lower rank....
that is just FALSE

just look at smoker by example... (idem for ao kiji, i'm sure that he was stronger than some amirals 20 years ago, yet he was "only" a vice admiral...)

and it's obvious that marines in grandline are averagely stronger than in the other seas, because dangers are greater there....
