WASHINGTON U.S. officials say military planners are weighing the possibility of sending more American forces to Iraq mainly to provide additional security around Baghdad.
A senior U.S. official says the number of troops currently under discussion would be fewer than 300, but there has been no final decision yet by Pentagon leaders.
The talks come as American fighter jets and drones conducted nearly a dozen airstrikes in Iraq since Tuesday when Islamic State militants threatened to kill a second American captive in retribution for any continued attacks.
This cannot be..John Fing Kerry said so..............
But those pink slips are still going out to the O4s and below.
I thought Obammy changed the world....Nobel Pieces Prize....
John McCain just called for ‘dramatic increase’ in US air strikes on Iraq.
They are determined to crawl back in there, aren’t they?
We're laying off our military and the geniuses in charge want another "surge". I'd rather send politicians - they're expendable, and no one will miss them!
Do this about 1,000 times and you will be close to settling this thing.
“They are determined to crawl back in there, arent they?”
It would not have been necessary if Obama had not screwed up the “peace”.
B. Hussein Obama, COMMANDER IN CHIEF of all US Military Forces, will continue to lead his Generals and Admirals to continued defeat, thus helping to fulfill Obamas pledge to Fundamentally transform the United States of America.
” military planners are weighing the possibility of sending more American forces to Iraq”
Isn’t this interesting, “military planners” not Obama are supposedly doing this.
Dumb’O does not want to be associated with re-sending boots on the ground to Iraq... and the complicit media is more than ready to oblige.
“- - - military planners - - - “
Read: Valerie Jarrett, and Susan Rice.
So much for that peace prize, bombing people and now more boots on the ground.
Hell no! Not under the current ROE.. This is going to far.
It would tarnish his shiny Nobel Peace Prize.
“Hell no! Not under the current ROE.. This is going to far.”
I agree-—they would just be targets.
And ISIS, ISIL, The State, or the New Caliphate ...is terrified.
It's almost inhuman in its massive threat. < /sarc >
