BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:30 P.M.) – The U.S. military is planning to send more personnel to northern Syria after deploying more than 400 Marines to the country this week.

According to the Army Times, the U.S. military recently deployed 2,500 soldiers from the 82nd Airborne Division to Kuwait in preparation for their upcoming mission in northern Syria.

The soldiers in the 82nd Airborne Division will be tasked with the mission to help the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) liberate Raqqa City from the Islamic State (ISIS) terror organization.

According to the open sources, the 82nd Airborne’s 2nd BCT comprises over 4,000 soldiers forming several infantry, artillery, cavalry, and combat support battalions.

The Army announcement regarding the deployment of the 2nd BCT comes on the heels of a Thursday statement by the US Central Command (CENTCOM) that more conventional troops would be sent to the Middle East to carry out so-called “stability operations.”

The US will again blunder into a conflict where they are not welcome and further inflame an already toxic situation that is entirely due to the actions of the US and her despotic protectorates such as Saudi Arabia and QATAR.

US ‘boots on the ground’ in Syria will only serve to increase the ISIS barbarians ability to recruit.

It is accepted that the US has been aiding ISIS and Al Nusra with training , arms, intel and money, so are the US politicians stupid or evil ? Or perhaps both?

Obama was a traitor.

when the pulse nightclub shooting happened last year, Obama blamed the guns while Trump increased his hard stance on eliminating the Daeshbags
