Kerry: We're Not Looking to Put Any Countries Troops on the Ground

Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Secretary of State John Kerry when asked if any nations have volunteered to supply combat troops to fight ISIS on the ground said, “We’re not looking to put troops on the ground.”

Bob Schieffer asked, “Mr. Secretary, you’ve gotten any specific commitments for military help? For example, have you found anybody that is willing to put troops on the ground in to this fight?”

Kerry answered, “We’re not looking to put troops on the ground. there are some who have offered to do so. but we are not looking for that at this moment anyway. The answer is, yes, there are some that have said that. There are some that are clearly prepared to take action in the area alongside the United States, and to do airstrikes if that’s what they’re called on to do.”

He added, “There are troops on the ground that don’t belong to us they’re called syrian. the syrian opposition is on the ground. one of the regrettable things is, it has been fighting ISIS by itself over the course of the last couple of years.”
