President Barack Obama has just sent in 20 U.S. military personnel armed with nothing more than water pistols to assess the refugee situation atop a mountain in war-torn Iraq.
Actually, I am sure the troops were not armed with water pistols, but they might as well should have been, since the President is saying that he will not commit any combat troops to the area.
Obama’s National Security lapdog, Advisor Ben Rhodes sent out some mixed signals regarding the use of U.S. troops in Iraq, further magnifying Obama’s projection of weak foreign policy.
One of the options the administration is reviewing, a White House official indicated Wednesday, could include ground troops — just not combat troops.
If Obama sends in U.S. Troops, rest assured that the rules of engagement these soldiers will have to followm, will further endanger their lives more than they already are.
