U.S. to deploy special forces to Syria in about-turn for Obama
WASHINGTON | BY ARSHAD MOHAMMED, PHIL STEWART AND PATRICIA ZENGERLE

*** begin quote ***

U.S. President Barack Obama plans to deploy dozens of special operations forces to northern Syria to advise opposition forces in their fight against Islamic State, a major shift and a step he has long resisted to avoid getting dragged into another war in the Middle East.

The number of special operations troops in Syria would be fewer than 50, said a senior administration official, speaking ahead of an announcement on Friday by the administration. One U.S. official said the number was likely to be in the range of 20 to 30 but could not provide details.

The decision by Obama, deeply averse to committing troops to unpopular wars in the Middle East, would mark the first sustained U.S. troop presence in Syria and raise the risk of American casualties, although U.S. officials stressed the forces were not meant to engage in front-line combat.

So much for the Nobel Peace Prize winner.

Where’s all the anti-war activists now?

We could have elected Ron Paul — the only true non-interventionist who ran for President in my memory. 

So how is that working out for you now?

Did BHO44 run on a peace platform or not?

Argh!

    Can’t disagree. He’s been a disappointment on several fronts, although i suspect every president has been in one way or another.

    Thanks,
