The U.S. is sending more troops and equipment to Jordan to help contain the violence in Syria, the Defense secretary said on Tuesday, adding the U.S. is preparing some sort of intervention in a post-Assad Syria.
I seem to remember years ago when Barack Obama said "Assad must go". It was in 2011 that Obama said, “For the sake of the Syrian people, the time has come for President Assad to step aside.” Unless I'm wrong, Assad is still there, there is no peace, and slaughter of innocents continues...
But now we will have more American soldiers on the ground ..
... troops will bolster the existing "small team of U.S. military experts" training the Jordanians in containing Syria's chemical weapons stockpile.
Those would be the chemical weapons that were supposedly a red line to Obama, a line he would not allow the Syrians to cross. Now we have proof that they did in fact use chemical weapons and Obama did nothing. His word means nothing.
Exactly where did Syria get those chemical weapons? Could it be they were moved there from Iraq before the invasion???
Assad says West will pay for backing al Qaeda in Syria
That's what Assad said in a recent, this week, TV interview.
