Are these 275 troops all Mech Warriors?
Link Posted: 6/16/2014 1:57:31 PM EST
There are probably more military personnel at the embassy
Link Posted: 6/16/2014 1:58:53 PM EST
Probably Benghazi vets and others that Dear Leader deems "undesirable".

Is this a joke? Is he looking for potential hostages so he can make more trades?

With this admin?

Probably just sent over there and told to go surrender and talk nice to those poor ISIS folk and ask then nicely to stop all that silly mass murdering and genocide stuff.

Probably won't even issue weapons - because... you know.. no one needs a 30 round clip and a ghost gun!

Hopefully they bring more than M4s and some belt feds if a 1000 ISIS militia show up with tanks, artillery and air support.
Link Posted: 6/16/2014 2:05:34 PM EST
Supposed to hold the walls long enough for the diplomats to be lifted out at the last possible second, the delay being obviously political. Good luck, guys.
Link Posted: 6/16/2014 2:05:48 PM EST
Uh 275 aint gonna cut it, even if they are special forces this seems dangerous. Our guys can't even trust the regular iraqis. I'm pretty sure many of the Iraqi police/military are changing sides right now. Maybe he wants them to be hostages so we can trade them for the rest of gitmo.
Link Posted: 6/16/2014 2:05:54 PM EST
I understand just as advisors, but damn. Can anyone tell me when we sent advisors to any conflict that it changed anything?

Didn't Vietnam start with advisors?
Link Posted: 6/16/2014 2:07:21 PM EST
I'm thinking we should send Obunghole and Biden to Iraq...without support troops. The insurgents would give up and be begging us to take them back in 24 hours. Even they don't have the tolerance for bullshit that the american public seems to.

It did. Eisenhower sent 900 advisers.

Just got a little more info. They will be posted at the embassy.

Just send Bergdahl.

Are there more, or less, than 1375 prisoners in Guantanamo?

Unless those 275 are T1000's they are in for one hell of a fight. FBHO

I could almost see that being sensible if it was SF being sent to train up locals to resist. Given the track record of the Iraqis, probably not really a useful strategy, but almost sensible.

Well, it is a nice embassy.

FAST?
Link Posted: 6/16/2014 2:37:57 PM EST
I hear they'll be airborne, probably these guys........



Link Posted: 6/16/2014 2:38:29 PM EST
There their to protect the Embassy and whatever assets that reside within the walls.

Hope they have a good evac plan if/when the shit decides to go to shit. Hope there's QRF stationed nearby too.
Link Posted: 6/16/2014 2:39:25 PM EST
I've never been in the military.
I don't pretend to know a lot about the military.

However, I just can't see 275 guys being able to make a difference against thousands of militants. Even as advisers. Training the locals has proven retarded in the past, so why try that again?
Link Posted: 6/16/2014 2:40:13 PM EST
damn
Link Posted: 6/16/2014 2:41:43 PM EST
275

I hope there is at least a few gun ship crews in that 275 number.

The man child will never cease to amaze me.

Yeah, that about sums it up quite well.

EDIT: Those going took a pledge, but I'd be damned if I held it against one soldier who refused to go.
Link Posted: 6/16/2014 2:49:06 PM EST
Fox is reporting that ISIS captured a bunch of US made Stinger MANPADS from the Iraqi Army. That could make air support and embassy evac dicey. Just imagine a plane load of embassy personnel or a commercial airliner gets shot down with weapons we provided to the IA.

I don't know why I click on these threads.

Our government is ran by tards of the highest caliber.
Link Posted: 6/16/2014 2:51:52 PM EST
In light of the recent Bergdahl exchange....

Let's keep our 275 troops and give them Obama.

Considering the opposition executed 5 times that amount in the last few days, our response seems minor.

Mind you, it is 'up to 275'. So he could send less in actuality.
