THOUSANDS OF US TROOPS HEAD TO KUWAIT TO FIGHT IN SYRIA, IRAQ | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


THOUSANDS OF US TROOPS HEAD TO KUWAIT TO FIGHT IN SYRIA, IRAQ

Instead of directly deploying thousands of additional ground troops into Iraq or Syria, the sort of precipitous escalation that might get Congress voting on the war, the Trump Administration appears to have decided that the solution is to send thousands of US ground troops to Kuwait, and let the commanders in Iraq and Syria just take what they want.

Early reports of this strategy emerged Wednesday, when officials said there were considerations of sending around 1,000 troops into Kuwait for this operation. Just two days later, the figure was up to at least 2,500, with signs that it is continuing to grow all the time.

While President Obama was micromanaging the escalations, particularly in Iraq, where every couple of weeks another hundred or two troops would be sent, the Trump Administration appears to be throwing the troops into a big pile and leaving the deployments up to the commanders.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am having an industrial-strength, palm to forehead moment, upon reading this; I am profoundly disappointed at this turn of events.

The French have a saying; the more things change, the more they remain the same; I am deeply concerned that this is imminently true of the Trump Administration.
