The Herald reports:
Even when President Barack Obama sent United States troops back to Iraq and ordered the military to stay in Afghanistan, he insisted Syria would remain off limits for American ground forces. Now he’s crossed his own red line.
Obama’s announcement on Saturday that he was deploying up to 50 US special operations troops into northern Syria to assist in the fight against Isis (Islamic State) is the kind of incremental move that has defined his second-term Mideast strategy.
So when will the Nobel Committee as for its Nobel Peace Prize back? Obama now has ground troops in three countries.
I think this shows the difference between rhetoric and reality.
Sometimes you have to go with the least worst option.
