$33 Billion in War Funding Or Else?

WTF?
Defense Secretary Robert Gates told senators Wednesday that the Pentagon will have to do “stupid things” if Congress doesn’t approve a $33 billion supplemental spending request by July 4.
It's not at all clear what Gates means here-- this is the only thing the article talks about the military doing, and it doesn't seem "stupid"--
Funding for the Navy and Marine Corps will begin to run out in July, forcing the Pentagon to disrupt other programs. And by early to mid-August, the military may have to start furloughing civilians and might not be able to pay members of the active-duty military.
Is Gates making a threat?
