US President Barack Obama confirmed plans to dramatically increase the American troop presence in Syria by deploying an additional 250 personnel, bringing the total to 300. He said the troops would help drive out the Islamic State terrorist group.The move, which was first reported by the media, will once again contradict Obama’s 2013 promise of not putting any“American boots on the ground in Syria.” Just as I have approved additional support for Iraqi forces against ISIL (Islamic State, previously ISIS/ISIL - RT), I've decided to increase US support for local forces fighting ISIL in Syria,” Obama said. “A small number of US special operations forces are already on the ground in Syria,” he said. “Their expertise has been critical as local forces have been driving ISIL out of key areas. So given the success, I have approved the deployment of up to 250 additional US personnel in Syria, including special forces, to keep up this momentum.” It was not immediately clear how many of those 250 troops would be added to special operations, medical or intelligence support. According to Obama, they will be involved in special operations as well as in training and assisting Syrian opposition forces to fight IS. What happened to that promise of you never putting American boots on the ground in Syria? Why only 250 troops on the ground. In the media news they will tell you and explain to you how this will be troops to fight ISIS. What they won't tell you is the small number of troops is to train "Syrian moderate rebels" who in fact are ISIS. 250 troops sounds more like a training mission then a fight against ISIS. 250 troops is about the size of your average unit, this is why it's merely nothing more then a training mission for "moderate rebels." With all the war rhetoric against Russia in past months by Washington, it shouldn't even surprise us if they are training rebels with this group of US troops to train to deal with Russian aggression.
