US Deploys Troops To Prepare For Syria Military Intervention

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


US Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel informed congress today he has ordered the deployment of troops to Jordan to prepare for possible military operations in Syria.

Hagel stated that 200 troops are to be deployed to Jordan to make preparations to conduct intelligence and to make contingency plans to conduct military operations to secure chemical and biological weapon stashes inside of Syria.

Hagel further stated that the troops can provide leadership and training support for additional troops that may deployed in the future.

The threat of weapons of mass destruction falling into the hands of terrorist is a tried and true tactic for drumming up public support for military operations in the Middle East.

Truth be told, the ongoing civil war in Syria is actually the result of a coalition of westeren governments training, arming and supplying intelligence to the same Muslim extremists they are fighting against in so-called War on Terror.

CNN reports:

In a critical indication of growing U.S. military involvement in the civil war in Syria, CNN has learned Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel is ordering the deployment of up to 200 troops to Jordan, according to two Defense Department officials.

The troops, which will come from the headquarters of the 1st Armored Division at Fort Bliss, Texas, “creates an additional capability” beyond what has been there, one official said.

The group will give the United States the ability to “potentially form a joint task force for military operations, if ordered,” he said.

The new deployment will include communications and intelligence specialists who will assist the Jordanians and “be ready for military action” if President Barack Obama were to order it, the official said.

This comes as the Pentagon has recently reviewed military options for Syria although Obama has not ordered any to be put into action.

Al Aryabia reports:

The Pentagon is sending about 200 soldiers from a U.S. Army headquarters unit to Jordan to assist efforts to contain violence along the Syrian border and plan for any operations needed to ensure the safety of chemical weapons in Syria, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel told Congress Wednesday.

The decision to dispatch the 1st Armored Division troops of planners and specialists in intelligence, logistics and operations comes as several lawmakers pressed the Obama administration for even more aggressive steps to end the two-year civil war.

Hagel and Gen. Martin Dempsey, the chairman of Joint Chiefs of Staff, faced persistent questions from senior members of the Armed Services Committee about efforts to force out Syrian President Bashar Assad. The Pentagon leaders made clear that the situation is extremely complicated and they must be certain of the endgame before any military step to try to end the bloodshed.

      Jct: Surprise! Now, instead of sleazily backing outside terrorists behind the scenes, the US is proudly stating its intention to commit the war crime of aggressive war. Of course, they bomb them to save them, like in Viketnam, right? What is the world going to do about these overt war criminals? The fact no one can bring them to justice despite their continued slaughters is sure scary, isn’t it? What if Amerika decided to bring yankee-style democracy to your country at the point of a gun?
