What to do..? What to do, ATS...? There are increasing demands for the creation of a secure buffer on the Syrian side of the border with Turkey.
However, doing so would means "Boots on the ground..." A move Obama has long resisted. No matter how he goes about this conflict in the M.E.
things won't end well, and we'll be engaged in conflict for a long-long time; whether we put boots on the ground or not.
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration's promise to limit U.S. military engagement against Islamic State militants makes it difficult to accept
Turkey's terms for joining the fight in neighboring Syria.
Turkey and other American allies want the U.S. to create a no-fly zone inside Syrian territory. Yet doing that would mean embracing one of two options
President Barack Obama long has resisted: cooperating with Syrian President Bashar Assad's government or taking out its air defenses, an action
tantamount to war.
War is imminent and Obama is trying to hold it off by keeping his promise. He seems to be the only thing standing in the way from all out conflict.
However, will his refusal to enter the M.E. conflict(s) only serve to make things worse in the end? I think we should not get involved right now.
War at this time would be a distraction for the US and its allies, allowing for rogue groups; such as ISIS, to get a leg up on their corrupt
intentions. There may be more issues in play which I am not privy to that could be deciding factors in how things are done. What says ATS?
