US Sends Troops To Syria: Here Are The Questions The Media Should Be Asking

Incirlik

So, the US will embed US Commando units with Kurdish forces, giving them air support from Incirlik Air Base in southern Turkey, the very same base that was used by Turkey to bomb those same Kurdish forces. Does anyone in the military, or Administration, have any sense whatever? It doesn’t appear so. – Shorty Dawkins, Associate Editor

This article comes from zerohedge.com

On Friday, The White House announced that the US is set to put boots on the ground in Syria.

Predictably, virtually no one in the mainstream media is asking the right questions.

A painful Q&A with Josh Earnest saw the White House Press Secretary attempting to explain to reporters that there’s a distinction between “advise and assist” and “combat.” In short, everyone was keen on documenting the stark contrast between placing spec ops troops in harm’s way and Obama’s 2013 pledge to “not put boots on the ground” inside Syria.

While documenting the purported “shift” in strategy may make for good weekend reading for America’s clueless masses, it completely misses the point. As recently released helmet cam footage clearly demonstrates (assuming it actually depicts what Washington says it depicts) 30 Delta Force commandos were involved in a single operation in Iraq. That is, nearly as many troops as Obama is now set to send to Syria fought just last week in one battle against ISIS. And while that’s Iraq and we’re now talking about Syria, the distinction is to a large extent meaningless – there are American boots on the ground in the region and there have been in one capacity or another for at least 12 years.

The real questions revolve around where these troops are going to be placed, what their objectives are, and ultimately, how the Pentagon plans to do this without putting them in the crosshairs of either the Russians, the Turkish air force, or Hezbollah. Here’s a bit of color from WSJ on what the “plan” is:

Up to 50 U.S. special-operations troops will assist Syrian rebel units spearheading what the Pentagon says would be a new military offensive against the militant group, marking a sharp escalation in the level of direct U.S. involvement on the ground inside Syria. The American forces are to link up with local forces in Kurdish-controlled territory whose mission will be to choke off supply lines to Islamic State militants in their Syrian stronghold of Raqqa.

The first phase of the new campaign is expected to kick off with an operation in northern Syria as early as next week, officials said. U.S. drones and fighter planes will provide the Syrian fighters with air support.

Under Mr. Obama’s new orders, the American commandos will operate in Syria under what the Pentagon calls an advise-and-assist mission, and will not accompany local forces on any of their operations “for the foreseeable future,” a senior U.S. defense official said.

But other defense officials said they couldn’t rule out the possibility that the forces would be pulled into occasional firefights with Islamic State military given their proximity to the confrontation line. The officials cited as an example last week’s raid in Iraq in which a U.S. commando was killed.

To support local forces with their ground campaign, Mr. Obama has authorized the deployment of A-10 Warthog ground-attack planes as well as F-15 fighters to the Incirlik Air Base in southern Turkey, administration officials said.

  1. For over a year Obama has played this game and now that Russia has taken action we go in? I feel sorry for our military. They’re being used as pawns by a novice player.

  2. Yet this is another unlawful battle that UN (USED to be US) military is being used as the arm of the UN.

    Sorry, but it is OUR money that pays their waged, our families blood that gets spilled, and it is OUR government – though those that are SERVING WITHIN it believe their own propaganda that they rule – who are doing what is FORBIDDEN to them in writing within the US Constitution.

    Those that serve within our governments do not rule except within certain perimeters set up in writing, they have NO authority except that they are there to carry out delegated, put-into-writing duties assigned NOT to the person serving, but to the branch or some certain specific put-into-writing positions. Remember, the person serving changes, but the duties and authority remain and do NOT go with the person when they leave and are NOT left to their posterity as a king’s would.

    WE are NOT being attacked (we actually are here on US soil, but not so obviously).

    Not one of any American who supposedly signed up for the US military should obey those unlawful orders. Of course, if they KNOWINGLY signed up for the UN/NATO military that is different. But if this is the UN and NATO’s military as Obama, Panetta, and Dempsey said it was years ago when they were given by them – with no lawful authority – to the UN and NATO to use, then NOT one dollar of American money should be going to support the Pentagon and military industrial complex as they are OPENLY Traitors to the American people, the US Constitution, and the USA.

    Did anyone stop to think that the more of our military that those that serve within our governments send overseas makes much less for them to “fight” here in the USA? More who might refuse to obey orders to fire upon the Americans here on US soil?

    “Mr. Obama has authorized…”

    It is important to understand that Obama did not meet the three (3) requirements to be a presidential candidate to be US President. He was “elected” through *Election Fraud, as has been many of those sitting in office for decades. He has no DELEGATED authority over the US Military until he is proven a LAWFUL US President or REPLACED with a constitutional one.

    *The 2008 Democratic Nominating Committee (DNC) document did not include the normal language found on those documents stating that Obama was qualified to be a candidate. The 2008 Republican Nominating Committee (RNC) document did, as is normal. This shows that the DNC knew that Obama was not qualified, or why change the form?

    *South Bend, Indiana JURY found that Election Fraud put BOTH Obama and Hillary Clinton on the presidential primary ballot in Indiana in the 2008 election.

    Both factions (parties, Reps & Dems) carry out Election Fraud, are corrupt, and work against the American people, the US Constitution, the USA.

    Basically, until WE the PEOPLE remove and replace those that serve within our governments – yes all – not one AMERICAN soldier should be following anyone’s orders except for strictly following the US Constitution.

    We have a LOT of Traitors and Domestic Enemies within our governments, and until we have one that actually does as Delegated no one has any authority over the US Military, or any real American and constitutional LEA’s; or over the American people and to follow their unlawful and not delegated authority is Treason, and quite possibly **Terrorism.

    **28 C.F.R. Section 0.85 Terrorism is defined as “the unlawful use of force and violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives”.

    Don’t be a Traitor to your nation, come home, because until we get rid of the enemies within, there can be no lawful military action except defending the USA on American soil from any military attack while those are being replaced and prosecuted according to our laws – not foreign ones.

    Come home any that are US Military, as we MUST NOT support the UN military in ANY way, and the UN/NATO has no lawful authority over the US Military – read the US Constitution.

    If your American military you belong here defending your nation while we replace those Traitors and Domestic Enemies that are within our governments not doing what is put into writing and delgated or forbidden within the US Constitution for the branch or specific certain positions.

    The Militia as a civilian unit pf the people, is your superior here. Find one that follows the US Constitution and state Constitutions STRICTLY – as that is the ONLY lawful constitutional Militia – and assist them until needed to defend against foreign and contract troops on US soil.

    We have to replace every single person who “serves” within our governments in every position as NONE of them have kept their Oath to support and defend the US Constitution as required. Since they have not done that, their DELEGATED authority is NOT valid.

    Ufortunately, Obama and all those serving within his administration must be arrested and held for prosecution – including top ranking military personnel and those that assist them.

    Also ALL of those who are in the Federal Reserve and within the must be arrested as Traitors to the USA.

    Abraham Lincoln: “We, the people, are the rightful masters of both congress and the courts – not to overthrow the constitution, but to overthrow men who pervert the Constitution”

    Benjamin Franklin: “In free governments the rulers are the servants, and the people their superiors and sovereigns. For the former, therefore, to return among the latter was not to degrade but to promote them.”

    George Washington: “A free people ought not only to be armed, but disciplined; to which end a uniform and well-digested plan is requisite; and their safety and interest require that they should promote such manufactories as tend to render them independent of others for essential, particularly military, supplies.”

    On US Presidents
    John Jay: “Permit me to hint, whether it would be wise and seasonable to provide a strong check to the admission of Foreigners into the administration of our national Government; and to declare expressly that the Commander in Chief of the American army shall not be given to nor devolve on, any but a natural born Citizen.”

    Alexander Hamilton, Fed Papers 65: “A president should be impeached for “offenses which proceed from the misconduct of public men, or in other words, from the abuse or violation of some public trust. They are of a nature which may with peculiar propriety be denominated political, as they relate chiefly to injuries done immediately to society itself.”

    Alexander Hamilton Fed 69: “The one (a president) can confer no privileges whatever; the other [the king] can make denizens of aliens, noblemen of commoners; can erect corporations with all the rights incident to corporate bodies.”
    Alexander Hamilton: “Nothing was more to be desired than that every practicable obstacle should be opposed to cabal, intrigue, and corruption. These most deadly adversaries of republican government might naturally have been expected to make their approaches from more than one querter, but chiefly from the desire in foreign powers to gain an improper ascendant in our councils. How could they better gratify this, than by raising a creature of their own to the chief magistracy of the Union?”

    St. George Tucker: “The Federal Government is the creature of the States. It is not a party to the Constitution, but the result of it – the creation of that agreement which was made by the States as parties. It is a mere agent, entrusted with limited powers for certain objects; which powers and objects are enumerated in the Constitution. Shall the agent be permitted to judge of the extent of his own powers, without reference to his constituent?”

    On Separation of Powers
    George Washington in his Farewell Address: “It is important, likewise, that the habits of thinking in a free Country should inspire caution in those entrusted with its administration, to confine themselves within their respective Constitutional spheres; avoiding in the exercise of the Powers of one department to encroach upon another. The spirit of encroachment tends to consolidate the powers of all the departments in one, and thus to create whatever the form of government, a real despotism. The necessity of reciprocal checks in the exercise of political power; by dividing and distributing it into different depositories, and constituting each the Guardian of the Public Weal against invasions by the others, has been evinced by experiments ancient and modern; some of them in our country and under our own eyes. To preserve them must be as necessary as to institute them.”

    On Alliances
    George Washington: “It is our true policy to steer clear of entangling alliances with any portion of the foreign world. The great rule of conduct for us in regard to foreign nations is, in extending our commercial relations, to have with them as little political connection as possible.”

    Thomas Jefferson: “I have ever deemed it fundamental for the United States never to take active part in the quarrels of Europe. Their political interests are entirely distinct from ours. Their mutual jealousies, their balance of power, their complicated alliances, their forms and principles of government, are all foreign to us. They are nations of eternal war.“

    John Quincy Adams: “America does not go abroad in search of monsters to destroy. She is the well-wisher to the freedom and independence of all. She well knows that by enlisting under other banners than her own, were they even the banners of foreign independence, she would involve herself beyond the power of extrication in all the wars of interest and intrigue, of individual avarice, envy and ambition, which assume the colors and usurp the standards of freedom.”

    Thomas Jefferson: “Peace, commerce and honest friendship with all nations; entangling alliances with none.”

    Alexander Hamilton: “Foreign influence is truly the Grecian horse to a republic. We cannot be too careful to EXCLUDE its influence.” (caps are mine)

    Alexander Hamilton: “Every act of a delegated authority, contrary to the tenor of the commission under which it is exercised, is void. No legislative act, therefore, contrary to the Constitution, can be valid. To deny this, would be to affirm, that the deputy is greater than his principal; that the servant is above his master; that the representatives of the people are superior to the people themselves; that men acting by virtue of powers, may do not only what their powers do not authorize, but what they forbid.”

    On War
    James Madison: “The power to declare war, including the power of judging the causes of war, is fully and exclusively vested in the legislature … the executive has no right, in any case, to decide the question, whether there is or is not cause for declaring war.”

    George Washington: “The constitution vests the power of declaring war in Congress; therefore no offensive expedition of importance can be undertaken until after they shall have deliberated upon the subject and authorized such a measure.”

    Militia
    Patrick Henry: “The militia is our ultimate safety. We can have no security without it. The great object is that every man be armed.”

    John Adams, ‘A Defense of the Constitutions of the United States’: “To suppose arms in the hands of citizens, to be used at individual discretion, except in private self-defense, or by partial orders of towns, countries or districts of a state, is to demolish every constitution, and lay the laws prostrate, so that liberty can be enjoyed by no man; it is a dissolution of the government. The fundamental law of the militia is, that it be created, directed and commanded by the laws, and ever for the support of the laws.”

    Alexander Hamilton, Federalist Papers 28: “The militia is a voluntary force not associated or under the control of the States except when called out; [when called into actual service] a permanent or long standing force would be entirely different in make-up and call.”

    Thomas M. Cooley, General Principles of Constitutional Law, Third Edition: “The right [to bear arms] is general. It may be supposed from the phraseology of this provision that the right to keep and bear arms was only guaranteed to the militia; but this would be an interpretation not warranted by the intent. The militia, as has been explained elsewhere, consists of those persons who, under the laws, are liable to the performance of military duty, and are officered and enrolled for service when called upon…. If the right were limited to those enrolled, the purpose of the guarantee might be defeated altogether by the action or the neglect to act of the government it was meant to hold in check. The meaning of the provision undoubtedly is, that the people, from whom the militia must be taken, shall have the right to keep and bear arms, and they need no permission or regulation of law for the purpose. But this enables the government to have a well regulated militia; for to bear arms implies something more than mere keeping; it implies the learning to handle and use them in a way that makes those who keep them ready for their efficient use; in other words, it implies the right to meet for voluntary discipline in arms, observing in so doing the laws of public order.”

    Samuel Adams: “If ever time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin.”

    Patrick Henry: “The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government – lest it come to dominate our lives and interests.”

    1. Cal, while I agree with most if not all what you have said, there is no means to accomplish what you suggest under the current circumstances. To try and take said action would likely result in prison and name calling of all patriots as terrorists themselves. The public must first be convinced of these positions in order for them to stand, short of revolution.
      First, our youth should be taught the futility of becoming a pawn to the system and a sacrifice. When no one will join the military in numbers to sustain operations, maybe, just maybe word could start to get around.
      Not enough knowledge of the Constitution is within the understanding of most people such that they even know whereof you speak. Would that it were not so, but people have not been taught in our schools; so much has been lost.
      We are few in number, and without the power to prosecute, we have not the means to accomplish what is necessary.

    1. The US Constitution assigns that duty to the Militia.

      US Constitution, Article I, Section 8, Clause 15: “To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel invasions.

      Basically the Militia has as its constitutionally assigned duties to:
      — Enforce the US Constitution and each state’s Constitution,
      — Enforce and keep the “Laws of the Union” (which are constitutional laws ONLY),
      — Protect the country against all enemies both domestic and foreign, and
      — “to suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions”.

      The duties those that serve within the general (federal) and state governments have to the Militias of the several states are listed here within Clause 16.

      Clause 16: “To provide for organizing, arming, and disciplining, the Militia, and for governing such Part of them as may be employed in the Service of the United States, reserving to the States respectively, the Appointment of the Officers, and the Authority of training the Militia according to the discipline prescribed by Congress”.

      Basically it is the ORGANIZED (trained as the congress reqires the US military to be trained) Militia who has that duty. Each state Militia can assist another state if needed.

  3. Come on. We are at war and you don’t know who the enemy is? US Sends Troops To Syria: Questions Media Should Be Asking. Media is the enemy which tells me you don’t know. Congress is our enemy. The injustice department, is our enemy and on and on. We have no government. It’s all corporation for profit and were just pons in the game. Boy are we in trouble. Thanks for exposing yourself.

    1. It may be a good idea for you to pause and re-think your hasty analysis.
      Among other mistakes you posted, we are *not* at war, because Congress has not declared war. Truth be told, we have no business “over there” in the middle east.
      But while you’re correct in noting that the idiots who are currently running the U.S. Federal government are corrupted criminals and therefore are enemies of the American people and our Constitution, you must finally admit that the mass media is in bed with the Fedgov, is manipulated by the same forces behind the scenes which manipulate our impotent, lapdog media.
      Thanks for reading and posting here.
      Salute!

      1. At this juncture it is completely impossible to know what is the truth of many matters , but we do know that the current regime and prior are all about maintaining the many illusions they have created to control us all. Her is how they do it ether easily

        http://www.downtoearththinking.com/cogdis-and-normalcy-bias.html

        and here is a starter of what we can all do rather easily to stop these maniacs

        http://www.downtoearththinking.com/citizens-take-back-america-.html

        Our country is run by sociopaths and psychopaths. And we all now live in many illusions and a corporatocracy. Enjoy the site and this sister FB page !

        1. “At this juncture it is completely impossible to know what is the truth of many matters…”

          No, it is easy to understand, if it is not following the US Constitution in every way then it is “color of law”, pretend law, not lawful here in America.

          Do you kknow the US Constitution? Read it at least once, but preferably often? Have you read your state’s Constitution? If not, then how can you say you even understand our government and what it will take to bring it back? That is the contract that all who serve within our governments are under and must follow. Those are the supreme law of this land, and the highest law of your state.

          I am not saying that your ideas are not good, as they have much merit to them. But if YOU yourself do not bother to know what our government is, and is not (democracy), then how can you even decide what those that serve as representatives of the people, can do lawfully, or what they will unlawfully use against you in your actions?

          There is a reason that Oaths are required, as it means that the Oath taker MUST know what they are swearing and taking PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY to do.

          AS long as we do not call all who break that Oath on their actions how will any understand that the US Constitution is alive and well, and BACKED up, and is LAW – the highest law?

          As we wait, the “programming” of American continues at an alarming rate. Propaganda, subliminals, etc.

          Do you have a cell phone? SMARTMETERS on elct and gas? TV? All of those support the destruction of American and use subliminals which has been ongoing since the first black and white TV’s, and was also tried on radios before TV’s, amzing enough by those that serve within our governments.

          Do you put up with TSA Traitors to the USA around our nation, and actually that those who “serve” within that agencies and others such as the BLM, etc are also *Terrorists?

          *28 C.F.R. Section 0.85 Terrorism is defined as “the unlawful use of force and violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives”.

          It is done through the law enforcement agencies and officers allowing themselves to be used against the people and breaking their Oaths (see, Oaths again, personal respnsibility again), through NSA spying and breaking their Oaths (again), military overseas when we do not have a clearcut declaration of wars following unlawful orders and breaking their Oaths (again)…

          See how it works? PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY IS REQUIRED BY THE OATH in all of those actions.

          WE have to stop all “elections” as they are fraudulent with people placed as candidates. Then run our own elections with Militias guarding them. You see, Elections are the people’s voice, election fraud plus those advocating not voting shuts up the peoles voice until we ourselves take it back.

          Those (Oaths – lawfully and legally biinding, Elections) are the peoples tools, as is the US Constitution, the Miltia, the Grand Jurys, and Grand Jury Investigations.

          Charges of treason can be brought against almost anyone serving within our governments and PARTICULARLY against Dempsey and Panetta (openly admitted as such on senate floor hearing), Obama (letter to Boehner), H. Clinton with the only “card” that could be brought out is for lying, treasonous scum to bring out “race card” and most are white beiong charged.

          Are you saying that the US Constitution allows “assassination powers”? NO, as it is First Degree Murder as any LE worth their salt would tell you.

          Are you saying that it is now okay for those serving within the US Military to follow unlawful orders and not understand their PERSONAL responsibility to KEEP the Oath? That America is not ONLY allowed to only defend herself from attack, but can go do wars of aggression at the behest of a foreign entity and the Traitors who support that entity over our nation and legitimate government?

          Our movement within our nation are stopped or interrrupted unlawfully by border agents who willingly or not, are NOT keeping their Oaths to support and defend the US Constitution using *terroism as the threat of force is lways there, and the actions they do are TREASONOUS in nature against the American people.

          Border agents do not keep their Oaths, they merely “follow orders” while committing crimes against the American people and the nation, the US Constitution. No person who serves within our government is allowed to deviate from the US Constitution or the state Constitution.

          READ the US Constitution.

  4. I remember a time when we were just sending “Advisors” to assist those we called the good guys.

  5. WOW 5 war vet, if this is true, how are they going to cover this one up? If, If this is fact, then truth is really stranger than fiction. WOW!!!
