    Do you move those goal posts much? The OP specifically said troops on the ground.

    The US is using drones on a regular basis -
    My Lord you are picky.
    When do you put troops on the ground without air cover.
    Troops deployed in Iraq, presently in non combat roles in have US Air cover.

    Obviously not. That is why the Rumsfeld Doctrine worked so well, whereas the Surge failed.

    Ah yes, the famous "coalition forces" that have been in Afghanistan for well over a decade and may or may not ever be finished in Iraq.

    The US is not the West and there is no such thing as non-combat air cover.

    Read it again. I stated troops in a non combat role- they have air support.
    Now do you want a discussion or a pissing match?

    I am trying to show you that each nation of "the West" acts largely independently - Canada now has "non-combat" troops in Iraq and has left Afghanistan. As far as I can tell Canada has decided to do absolutely nothing militarily in response to the recent Paris terror attacks.

    Those who think like you are part of the problem. World War 2 ended because our enemy understood how terrible war is. Now they have become our ally. When we bombed Dresden there were lots of civilian casualties. Certainly now that we have smart bombs our targeting ability has improved but consider this.

    War is an ugly business but if we fight it, we should fight to win and not let foolish rules that put our troops at risk limit our ability to fight. Honestly, as far as I'm concerned, during Vietnam they used to say, kill them all and let God sort it out. Frankly, I'm good with that.

    Pissing match. I have no need of that. Enjoy your evening.
