    US Special Forces deployed as ‘human shields’ to salvage terror assets in Syria

    Had the same thought when I first heard obamma was sending a major force of 30 to 50 select elite special forces members to Syria. He could possibly impede Putin from bombing his terrorist bros, maybe have another Seal Team 6 similar event for our military and possibly start WWIII.

    What's Obama going to do when Putin calls his bluff and wipes out American troops in combat?

    Those Special Forces troops are only there in hope that Putin won't risk engaging American troops on the battlefield.
    That's a dangerous and foolish strategy for Obama.

    World War III is rapidly approaching.

    There are more targets than US Special Forces Soldiers. It is a target rich environment.

    The Russians normally tell us the coordinates of the targets they plan to attack. If our groundpounders are there, the Russian jet jockeys merely switch to another target.

    He won't. He isn't stupid. He knows Russia is in no shape to wage war against the US. His regime would be turned into ash and soot within a few weeks. Russia's only real power is their nuclear stockpile. They're antiquated and he knows launching even one at us is MAD. He won't do it, he'd have to fight with conventional weapons. When it comes down to it, would it even be Putin's decision? Despite his bravado, isn't he somewhat of a figurehead?

    But isn't that taking a great risk? All it takes is one mistake.
    When Putin moved into the Middle East, it signaled game over for the United States.

    This is not going to end well.

    Not that I agree with anything Obama is doing in the war against ISIS, but I would take anything published by a news agency called Russia Today with a huge grain of salt.
    Actually, with an entire truck load of salt.

    obammy sending a token force of OUR soldiers to cover his a** and make someone think he's doing something is the definition of sacrifice for pure evil and total disregard for our troops' lives. May he rot in hell for even considering it. :steamed: The smartest man in the world sure forgot the lessons we learned in Vietnam pretty damn quickly.

    Putin saw what a disaster it was after Saddam was removed.

    Exactly. Not that I think announcing of the deployment of a tiny handfull of Special Ops forces to Syria is a good idea, but the article is pure Russian propaganda.

    berrys just covering his ass. He knows that it's just a matter of time before Ivan parades captured Isis fighters on the world stage. Proving to the stupid American public that Isis is nothing more than a covert CIA and Mossad operation.

    At the end of the Bush administration Iraq was pacified, the number of terrorist attacks and military casualties was zero, the country was starting to enter into normality.
    Even your new President Obama and his VP Biden both declared Iraq a success. Look for their interviews on YouTube if you can't remember it.

    The disaster you are taking about squarely falls on the shoulders of the guy you voted for twice.
    He made the decision to pull ALL troops out, leaving Iraq to turn in a place of chaos. We still have troops stationed in Germany and Japan more than half century after we defeated them, so why he insisted to completely pull out of Iraq doesn't make any sense. Other that he wanted the country to fall into a civil war to prove Bush was wrong.
    He encouraged the so called Arab spring that turned Syria and Libya in an ISIS playground.
    You voted for the guy. You own it.
    Stop re-writing history, your lies and propaganda ain't fooling anybody around here.
