In this video Luke Rudkowski talks about the important and latest meeting between Putin and Obama at the COP 21 meeting, that is gaining headlines everywhere.
We go over the latest U.S announcement of sending in more troops inside of Syria and Iraq plus all the other underreported reports geopolitically.
USA Today reported:
“Fifty guys to be deployed is not going to turn the tide of this battle,” he said.
Syria has been wracked by civil war that has killed 250,000 people and has seen the rise of ISIL, which claims the city of Raqqa as its de facto capital.
The ability of moderate local forces to seize territory from ISIL will likely be a key measure in the Pentagon’s assessment. The Pentagon trumpeted the offensive byKurdish peshmerga forces who retook the village of Sinjar in northern Iraq. That operation in mid-November was backed by U.S. airstrikes and benefited from American special operations forces who advised the Kurds from a safe distance.
The most likely spot for adding U.S. special operators would be in northeastern Syria, said Nicholas Heras, a Syrian expert at the Center for a New American Security. There, a “slowly growing, if shaky” coalition called the Syrian Democratic Forces includes Arabs and Kurds willing to fight ISIL and the al-Qaeda-linked Nusra Front, he said.
“My assessment is that U.S. (special operations) forces are seeking to determine if local partners in the Syrian Democratic Forces coalition can clear-and-hold ISIS-controlled areas of eastern and northern Syria,” Heras said.
Press TV noted:
“The issue is what would it take to really degrade and ultimately destroy ISIS?” Thornberry said, using another acronym for the terror group. “Send however many guys or assemble whatever coalition is necessary to accomplish that goal.”
Thornberry said the deployment of 50 special forces was a half measure that would not change the dynamic on the ground. “Fifty guys to be deployed is not going to turn the tide of this battle.”
On Sunday, Republican Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham called for Washington to nearly triple the US military force levels in Iraq to 10,000, and send an equal number of troops to Syria to “counter” Daesh terrorists.
