Obama’s Decision To Put US Forces On The Ground In Jordan Is Lunacy


Did you know that Barack Obama has made the utterly bizarre decision to put American troops on the ground in Jordan

The United States has sent military troops to the Jordan-Syria border to bolster that country’s military capabilities in the event that violence escalates along its border with Syria, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said Wednesday.

Speaking at a NATO conference of defense ministers in Brussels, Panetta said the U.S. has been working with Jordan to monitor chemical and biological weapons sites in Syria and also to help Jordan deal with refugees pouring over the border from Syria. The troops are also building a headquarters for themselves.

But the revelation of U.S. military personnel so close to the 19-month-old Syrian conflict suggests an escalation in the U.S. military involvement in the conflict, even as Washington pushes back on any suggestion of a direct intervention in Syria.

Barack Obama is putting American troops at risk by placing them on the ground in Jordan. It opens our soldiers up to terrorist attacks and the idea that they could be involved in potential fighting on the Jordanian border is insane. We have no national interest in Jordan or Syria and putting our troops in the middle of that mess is risking their lives so Barack Obama can feel like a big man. It’s ridiculous, it’s foolish, and Republicans should cut off the funds for the mission unless Barack Obama can explain to the American people why we’re risking the lives of American troops in Jordan.
