    Obama deploys troops to Syria

    US sending 400 troops to train Syria rebels this spring | Fox News

    For those of you worried about the content of the article since it came from Fox, don't be, it's irrelevant. This is more of a broad opinion I have on the matter, I just used this link since it was the first one that popped up on google news. There are obviously others.

    The Syrian rebels, teamed up with Al Qaeda and taliban-funded cells, are nothing more than the same guys we are fighting in Afghanistan. They are religious extremists who oppose democracy. Believe it or not, and this is just my opinion, Assad has the same feelings for terrorists as we do! He hates Al Qaeda!

    Why is Obama (not only Obama- McCain was a big supporter of this too, along with other Repubs) authorizing such a stupid deployment? Training the very people that will train and recruit other terrorists? What the heck is going on???

    Is this like the time we sent "advisors" to Vietnam?

    When I was in Kosovo there were rumors about rolling into Syria heavy. I wonder if those rumors will come true?

    I don't see the problem with this, as long as they are moderate syrian rebels. This could be an effective way to combat ISIS and other extremist groups in Syria.

    Hmmmm....

    Well, Obama did say that he would not put boots on the ground in Iraq, which he has done, so what's the big deal here? Now that he's a lame duck he can bomb anybody he likes.

    And, according to the White House, training troops are not "advisers, so there.

    Lol there's no way to tell if they are moderate rebels or extremists! There are way more of the extremists and they ARE ISIS and Al Qaeda.

    Trust me, it's impossible to trust who you're training over there.

    In my opinion, I just think it's so stupid that Obama's training the very people who we're fighting in A-stan. McCain and the Republicans are just as guilty, don't get me wrong- not being Bias. He's just the Commander in Chief and he's ordering a stupid mission.

    They don't have a friggin clue who is who.

    We see terrorists from Yemen killing our allies and Obama releases terrorists from Yemen the next week. Go figure.
