U.S. deploying special force to boost fight against Islamic State


The United States is deploying a specialized expeditionary targeting force to help Iraq put additional pressure on Islamic State and be positioned to conduct unilateral operations into Syria, U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter said on Tuesday. "These special operators will over time be able to conduct raids, free hostages, gather intelligence, and capture ISIL leaders," Carter told the House Armed Services Committee in prepared remarks, using an acronym for Islamic State.

Looks like the neocons got what they wanted yet another war with boots on the ground. Just like with al-Qaeda we help create the terrorist group then we have to go to war to stop them. The people need to wake up in 2016 and vote these warhawks out of office.

I think Obama has proven he will do whatever he wants and the "neocons" be damned. He cares not for them, let alone give anything they say to mean anything worthy of consideration.

Sorry, this is all on Obama.

More likely to give support to ISIS...

Perhaps I'm just ignorant of the facts, but weren't special forces already conducting missions within ISIS territory? Just last month I could've sworn I saw a story about a raid to save hostages held by ISIS.

Regardless, sending special forces onto the ground is indeed an escalation, but far from what most would consider a "ground war". Once they start sending the marines and the army into the fray, then you should be worried.

It's about time. Hopefully the UK will follow suit and clean up some of the mess we created.

Meh, voting is a farce. They're just interchangeable heads. Remember I pet goat 2? I've been watching it again recently and drawing connections. This whole thing is scripted.

Yep, Obama is a neo-con. Sometimes copy and paste replies doesn't work....

Oh no! I only wrote here on ATS last night

www.abovetopsecret.com...

about how the next step might be boots on the ground as the beginning of escalation that would ultimately be a new kind of world war with a very different blue print to the other two.

Rikes Raggy! (in a Scooby Doo voice). Is this "In The Mouth of Madness"?

That on top of Cameron having a vote in the UK tomorrow which he shall surely win. U.S boots on the ground and UK entrance into active military action in Syria; is that escalation or what? Just like the entrance of the Russians. That was another big escalation. See the way it is escalating constantly? When will it stop escalating?

I still think this is only the beginning, the war(m) up act of something that is going to grow and grow. Someone powerful somewhere wants all this.

There's gotta be a joke out there somewhere...

How many Armies from different Country's does it take to defeat one Army in one Country?

Iraq is nothing compared to Syria. Watch and wait. We shall be watching and eventually participating for quite some time I think.

That was my exact point yesterday. No wonder the civilians have all moved home to Europe. There wasn't enough room left in Syria what with all the military hardware and armies gathering from so many nations.

Your Pink Panther looks really cool!
