Syria: Obama authorizes boots on ground to fight ISIS

by CNN  |  published on October 31, 2015

The United States is set to deploy troops on the ground in Syria for the first time to advise and assist rebel forces combating ISIS, the White House said Friday.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest said that the U.S. would be deploying “less than 50” Special Operations forces, who will be sent to Kurdish-controlled territory in northern Syria. The American troops will help local Kurdish and Arab forces fighting ISIS with logistics and are planning to bolster their efforts.

The deployment of U.S. Special Operations forces is the most significant escalation of the American military campaign against ISIS to date.

    OH wait ” No boots on the Ground” seem to be another “WAFFLE” If we ever Trust what the Incompetent SAYS…unless our HEROES are sent in BAREFOOT!! So Which Is it Obama???

  • Logistics and planning my ass! At the first sign of a pending attack, the Kurds will just throw their weapons down and run, leaving the weapons for ISIS. I believe that was the way the Vietnam conflict started, with a “Consulting” and police action on the part of the USA?

    With Obama’s Rules of Engagement, that will mean more dead soldiers.
    Remember. Obama hates America. And he hates the military.
