If anybody thinks we don't already have the most deniable and blackest of black ops folks over there already as consultants and observers with certain groups, they're nuts.

This is probably more support for THOSE folks than any serious instruction for the Syrians.

You don't understand doublespeak very well.

"Work out of" means that's what their orders say and where their duffel bag will be stored while they do "field training exercises" and "forward deployed advisement" "elsewhere".

I found an earlier news story that was very prescient.

Look at the map of Syria and who controls what. Assad doesn't control Damascus from what this maps says. He hardly controls anything:

Americans have been training the FSA in Jordan and KSA for a while. There aren't going to be Americans in Syria,the risk is simply too great.


My take on this fiasco is that when the US and GCC decided it was time for Assad to go,they shouldn't have just sat on the loo farting. It's all far too gone for the originally desired outcome. The VERY best that can be hoped for is all sides getting burned out and agreeing to a Lebanon in the 90s uneasy peace. Sorry for the pessimism but I don't see a military solution to IS any time soon,not from capability but rather will. The longer and longer this goes on,the higher the chance of things going to shit in the Gulf itself via Shia in Bahrain and the Saudi's home grown problems raring up and everything those encompass.
Link Posted: 1/16/2015 1:08:48 AM EST
"A prophetic pronouncement regarding Damascus: behold, Damascus is revolting and corrupt and will be removed from among inhabited cities. It is degenerate and unrestrained and shall be abolished. And she shall actually become a twisted and tangled heap of rubble. Abandoned and forsaken, deserted and destroyed will be the inhabited regions and populated cities of the outcasts in Jordan and Lebanon. For there will be roaming animals fighting in militant militias and failing miserably, but then there will be no one to terrorize."

Obama got us out of Iraq and Afghanistan.

So he is putting us into Syria now.

that is a 2:1 ratio, and he was able to actually keep a couple of campaign promises.

The article specifies two classifications for the troops. Trainers and "enablers". Nowhere did I see that there would be no troops, notably the so-called trainers physically in Syria.

What, they're going to shut down the battlefield for a few weeks and fly the "moderates" somewhere else for a few weeks for training? How does that work?

A Marine Expditionary For e is what 45,000 guys? And ISIS is what, 40,000 retards? I would be surprised if they lasted 6 weeks.

The article says nothing about sending troops to Syria. Your title is incorrect.

And the notion that there is no moderate opposition in Syria is a big part of the reason we have IS to deal with today. The revolution in Syria began as an almost entirely secular event. If we hadn't been so goddamned ignorant and short sighted about supportin' the Mooslims and them animals over thar we be quite as badly fucked as we are at the moment.
