After raid: More U.S. boots on the ground?


TO BE APPLAUDED UNEQUIVOCALLY, BUT WE HAVE HARD QUESTIONS WE NEED ANSWERED HERE.>>DO YOU SEE THIS AS BOOTS ON THE GROUND?>>THERE ARE AMERICAN BOOTS ON THE GROUNDS, AND I DON’T SEE IT AS THE SAME KIND OF MASSIVE OCCUPATION LIKE IN AFGHANISTAN OR IRAQ IN THE PAST AS WELL, AND THE RISK GOES UP THE MORE YOU CONDUCT THESE KINDS OF OPERATIONS AND THE PROBLEM WITH BEING PULLED INTO THE MESSY CIVIL WAR IN SYRIA IS THEN YOU TAKE OWNERSHIP, THE POTTERY BARN RULE, YOU BREAK IT YOU BUY IT, AND I DON’T KNOW IF WE WANT TO TAKE OWNERSHIP OF THIS, AND I UNDERSTAND THE FRUSTRATION OF HOW LONG IT’S TAKING AND THE SETBACKS IN RAMADI WHICH ARE REAL AND SERIOUS, AND AT THE SAME TIME WE DON’T WANT TO GET SUCKED IN IN A WAY THAT WE TAKE OWNERSHIP OF THIS WHOLE CRISIS.>>WHAT ARE THE RISKS OF THAT?>>THERE IS ALWAYS RISKS, AND TIME WILL TELL THE SPECIFIC TYPE OF YIELDS THE KIND OF INFORMATION WARRANTED. I THINK YOU NEED TO LOOK AT WHAT WE HAVE IN PLACE, THE COMMITMENT OF DELTA FORCE AND S.E.A.L. TEAM 6, AND THEY JUDGE WHETHER THEY CAN SUCCESSFULLY ENTER GIVEN THE AE NORMAL TEA AND THE COMPLEXITY OF THE OPERATION, SO I TRUST OUR SENIOR MILITARY COMMANDERS, IF THEY SAY THEY CAN DO IT I WILL STAND BY THEM, THEY CAN DO IT. THIS IS IMPORTANT TO LOOK AT THE INTELLIGENCE NETWORK AND IF YOU FIND SOMETHING PB YOU CAN PENETRATE AND ELIMINATE, AND JOG MORE INFORMATION FOR FUTURE OPERATIONS, I THINK IT’S PRUDENT TO DO. WE FACE A DIFFICULT CHALLENGE IN IRAQ AND SYRIA, AND IT’S NOT GOING TO CHANGE THIS PARTICULAR OPERATION, AND IT’S NOT GOING TO CHANGE THE BACKGROUND. THE BACKGROUND IS WE NEED A PLAN IN SYRIA. ARE WE GOING TO LET HIM STAY OR GO? WHAT IS OUR STRATEGY GOING FORWARD? WHAT ABOUT IRAN? YOU HAVE IRAN IN A TERRITORY OF IRAQ, AND TO A DEGREE, THAT HAS HEIGHTENED THE SENSITIVITY OF THE SUNNIS, AND YOU LOOK AT THE SUNNIS, FALLUJA AND THEY FEEL DISINFRANCHISED

  1. I can't help but to wonder if this crap would be happening if Saddam was still in charge…ISIS destroyed his hometown…He wouldn't take that lightly…

  2. No draft… no more amercian lives (fatal) you want Draft .you better be the first .wtf.obviously you are not a mother grandmother. No DRAFT.

  3. Republicans politicians always wanted boots on the ground. They complain because democrats are doing the samething over there. If this was the republican idea all republicans would be praising themselves.

  4. Unfortunately, I believe that we need more boots on the ground to Hold the Towns and Cities that the Iraqi Army keeps losing!,Also the Iraqi Army has to move much faster!!!
