US needs boots on the ground to ‘occupy & govern’ Syrian territories – Air Force secretary

4 posts in this topic

Washington needs “boots on the ground” in Syria in addition to its air campaign against ISIS, which is not fruitful despite some progress. US Air Force secretary has admitted that “ground forces” is a must in order to “occupy” and “govern” parts of Syria.

In her comments, Secretary Deborah Lee James stressed the importance of the US-led air campaign, but admitted that airstrikes need to be backed by ground forces.

“Air power is extremely important. It can do a lot but it can't do everything,” James said, just two days after Secretary of Defense Ash Carter supported President Obama’s “willingness to do more” in terms of US troops on Syrian ground.

“Ultimately it cannot occupy territory and very importantly it cannot govern territory,” James told reporters at the Dubai Airshow. “This is where we need to have boots on the ground. We do need to have ground forces in this campaign.”

Hi Cinnamon.

Let the :padllbli: politicians put their boots on the ground.

Along with their sorry well used asses!

Sorry for vulgarity.

In one of those moods I guess.

Be well.

Well, it's a successful strategy after all: mix your own soldiers in with the objects of Russia's wrath, then claim Russia targeted your soldiers and it's an act of war. Easy peasy.
