HRT VS Marines in different situations?

Of the following situations, which one would prevail, The FBI's Hostage Rescue Team VS The United States Marine Corps:

-Sniping out an individual suspect hiding in a tree 300 meters away

-Sniping out an individual suspect in an open field, without being seen by the suspect at 300 meters away

-Disarming the firearm of a suicidal man in a public location without being noticed by the man

-Rescuing a hostage held at gunpoint with numerous citizens around

-Stopping a street riot consisting of about 100 people going nuts, destroying things

-Shooting down an attacking plane that is headed for a government building

-Busting a drug raid where the suspects are all armed, and inside of a secure house

    HRT would be better because they train specifically for these situations. Very rarely, if ever, would a Marine be faced with the above situation, except maybe the sniper questions, which then would be determined by the shooter himself vs. what military or para-military unit they are in.

    -Sniping out an individual suspect in an open field, without being seen by the suspect at 300 meters away-USMC

    -Disarming the firearm of a suicidal man in a public location without being noticed by the man-HRT

    -Rescuing a hostage held at gunpoint with numerous citizens around-HRT

    -Stopping a street riot consisting of about 100 people going nuts, destroying things-USMC

    -Shooting down an attacking plane that is headed for a government building-USMC (never seen the HRT use Surface to air)

    -Busting a drug raid where the suspects are all armed, and inside of a secure house-Tie upper hand USMC as they do the same mission almost everyday for real

    Up until a few years ago Gysgt Carlos Hathcock USMC had the longest confirmed kill and evaded many kill teams in his time.
