The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff is preparing for troops on the ground.


[He] told a Senate panel that the goal for American advisers is to help Iraqi forces with planning, logistics and coordinating military efforts by coalition partners to take out members of the Islamic State group.

“To be clear, if we reach the point where I believe our advisers should accompany Iraqi troops on attacks against specific ISIL targets, I will recommend that to the president,” Dempsey told the Senate Armed Services Committees, using an alternative name for the group.

Pressed during questioning, Dempsey said he “would go back to the president and make a recommendation that may include the use of ground forces.”[su_csky_ad]

      If that sign is true, is the reciprocal also true, meaning if we did not fight radicals, they wouldn’t exist?

    We have too many war mongers out in full force. We shed enough lives and blood in Iraq. No more!

    The Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) measures annual military spending for most of the world’s armed countries. According to SIPRI, the U.S. spent $618 billion on its military last year, more than three times the $171 billion budget of second-place China. Based on SIPRI’s 2013 data, these are the countries with the largest military budgets
    maybe we can buy boots on the ground from another country ?

      junior graduated in 2012 and last seen riding his trail bike in Crawford tx.
      I don’t think he has much of a “team ” left because nobody talks about him anymore.
