Well it’s about damn time!
The U.S. Secretary of Defense Ash Carter announced today that we will be sending troops to Syria to battle ISIS and help special forces raid ISIS strongholds and known territories. This comes hot on the heals of Republican pressure to send ground troops to fight ISIS as there have been reports that U.S. air strikes aren’t getting the job done. Well when Obama tells us to stand down 75% of the time, that comes as no surprise to me.
‘Next, in full coordination with the Government of Iraq, we’re deploying a specialized expeditionary targeting force to assist Iraqi and Kurdish Peshmerga forces and to put even more pressure on ISIL,’ Carter said. ‘These special operators will over time be able to conduct raids, free hostages, gather intelligence, and capture ISIL leaders.’
Hell yes! Go kick some ISIS *** boys! We support and salute you!
