HOT U.S Marines in Syria with Artillery

The Washington Post reports:
Marines from an amphibious task force have left their ships in the Middle East and deployed to Syria, establishing an outpost from which they can fire artillery guns in support of the fight to take back the city of Raqqa from the Islamic State, defense officials said.
The deployment marks a new escalation in the U.S. war in Syria, and puts more conventional U.S. troops in the battle. Several hundred Special Operations troops have advised local forces there for months, but the Pentagon has mostly shied away from using conventional forces in Syria. 
And there you have it, the absurd notion held by Libertarian Trump fanboys that Trump was going to deescalate foreign military activity blown to smithereens with Marine artillery fire.

  1. A President putting troops into the Mid East? Stop the presses. This has never happened before. I can't believe Trump would do something like this, unprecedented.

    Sarcasm aside I really don't know if anyone actually thought Trump was going to end any wars. Your blog was so much better when you didn't add that last line of nonsense to most of your posts.
    Who are these libertarian Trump fanboys who thought he was going to end the wars in the middle east?
    It's like you're stuck in a perpetual state of "I told you so" and it really is getting quite boring to read over and over again.
