- US in Deeper with Syria War, No Fed Hike, GOP Debate Shocker

The U.S. Middle East policy is getting more confusing and more dangerous. They are talking peace while sending more troops to Iraq and Syria. Iran is now also invited to the peace table in Vienna to try and find a solution to the five year Syrian civil war. The Iranians and Russians are backing Bashar al-Assad, and the U.S. wants him gone. I don’t see how this will happen peacefully when it hasn’t been done with force and more than 250,000 dead in the crisis. Is John Kerry just going to talk Assad out of power now that Russia is clearly keeping him in power by force? He’s not leaving.
Meanwhile, the U.S. is going to be sending “advisers” into Iraq and Syria. The program to train and arm the so-called “moderate rebels” was a disaster. The Pentagon had a hard time finding the so-called “moderate rebels” to train. The U.S. will not have that much of a problem in Iraq but will have to fight alongside of Iran and forces friendly to Iran. Syria will present a huge and dangerous problem. How are the U.S. advisers going to not be captured by ISIS or al Qaeda? How long do you think it will take to see U.S. forces beheaded on camera? On top of that, U.S. Secretary of Defense Ash Carter said, this week, he is now going to have “direct action on the ground.” Russia is protesting U.S. ground forces being used in Syria, calling that“illegal” and a “big mistake.” So, the U.S. will fight with Russia and Iran against ISIS in Iraq, and fight against Iran and Russia alongside the “moderate rebels” being helped by al-Qaeda and ISIS in Syria? What kind of foreign policy is this? This is both confusing and dangerous for our military.
