Amidst Questions About Obama’s Leadership Ability He Commits Boots on the Ground in Syria and Iraq

He couldn’t cover for ISIS any longer, after all, he’s supposedly the Commander-In-Chief for the opposition. Things were looking weird.

Speaking of looking weird, I can only hope the boots on the ground aren’t festooned with sequins and worn by transgenders.

Defense Secretary Ashton Carter said Tuesday that the U.S. will begin “direct action on the ground” against ISIS forces in Iraq and Syria, aiming to intensify pressure on the militants as progress against them remains elusive.

“We won’t hold back from supporting capable partners in opportunistic attacks against ISIL, or conducting such missions directly whether by strikes from the air or direct action on the ground,” Carter said in testimony before the Senate Armed Services committee, using an alternative name for the militant group.

Carter pointed to last week’s rescue operation with Kurdish forces in northern Iraq to free hostages held by ISIS.

Carter and Pentagon officials initially refused to characterize the rescue operation as U.S. boots on the ground. However, Carter said last week that the military expects “more raids of this kind” and that the rescue mission “represents a continuation of our advise and assist mission.”

This may mean some American soldiers “will be in harm’s way, no question about it,” Carter said last week.

After months of denying that U.S. troops would be in any combat role in Iraq, Carter late last week in a response to a question posed by NBC News, also acknowledged that the situation U.S. soldiers found themselves in during the raid in Hawija was combat.

“This is combat and things are complicated,” Carter said.

  1. I can’t help but be concerned over what our ROE are going to be. Are we going in to win or just to look like we could mean business next to Putin?

  2. So after being against direct action subsequent to being for action, although they were actually against direct action, are the democrats again for direct action in Iraq?

  3. This isn’t about Gay Marines. This is about the narcissist and chief getting sand continually kicked in his face by Putin. And it’s REALLY dangerous considering Obama hates our military slightly less than he does Putin. Not good.

  4. Nothing … that is what will happen. There has been no real policy on the “Air War” since the start of the “Air War” so what gives you the idea something will happen on the ground?

    Sure, Delta and SF have been operating there for a long time now (shush don’t say anything). You only heard about them operating there now due to a fallen hero and the only reason you know about ‘where and how’ is because there is no other place of active combat to put the count against.

    Obama and his entire appointed bunch have shit so many times in a places they can’t reach to clean there is no hope for a legacy other than being “cock sucking spineless shit stains”.

    … sorry for the rant, but sometimes I can’t hold it in. / Lord please guide me to strength.

  5. Wait a minute!

    “Speaking of looking weird, I can only hope the boots on the ground aren’t festooned with sequins and worn by transgenders.”

    What a good idea. Send all the nancy boys and keep replacing them when ISIS kills them. Isn’t our country about 50% homosexual? Well, according to the media.

    When they are all gone, send the feminists since they are equal and all, you know.

    Then all the illegals. Heck, they made it over/through/under the border. They would be great.

    Then fill the transports with career welfare recipients.

    No, wait! How about all Democrats and RINO politicians, academia and judicial ‘folks’. Add employees of the EPA, IRS, BLM (both Bureau of Land Management AND BlackLivesMatter), DOE, DOJ, and all Union bosses.

    There. My job is done.

  6. “Speaking of looking weird, I can only hope the boots on the ground aren’t festooned with sequins and worn by transgenders.”

    Don’t worry. The trannies will be wearing high heels, so no boots will go to waste.

    I’m with Claudia. I think it will be a good use of trannies and the like. ISIS troops will die laughing. The tactic can’t be any less effective than 0bama’s policies to date.
