Do you think Trump will send in ground troops to fight ISIS?
We already have ground troops fighting ISIS. And dying while fighting ISIS. So, will DonnieBabes send more? Hard to say, but if he keeps his campaign promise to finish ISIS, then he'll do so.
Poll: Do you think the US should deploy troops to fight ISIS?
No, it'd be the same situation as with the Taliban. They'd either hide with innocent people, take innocent people as hostages, or blend in as civilians which would make it hard to identify them.
Should The US Send Troops To Fight ISIS?
The U.S. doesn't want to do it - there *might* be majority public support for that *now*, but it is far from overwhelming and it wouldn't last more than a couple months. Defeating IS and building a stable Iraqi state will take 20 years, and Syria would take even longer. Major renewed American forces in the region is out of the question. However, YPD forces in Kobane reported that airstrikes did cause IS to pull back, at least temporarily, so that is a good sign. In addition, Iraqi Army and Awakening forces in Ramadi were nearly overrun, but they are now counter-attacking, thanks to Coalition air cover and changes in command (essentially, when many Iraqi Army officers ran, their soldiers said "screw those guys" and linked up with Awakening forces to continue fighting; it was close, but Ramadi hasn't fallen and the Iraqis are relieving some of their cut-off forces).
Did you know that Obama is sending combat troops to Africa?
It should be noted that during the era of Vietnam, we were a lot more anti-communist and that kind of muddles the thinking a little bit when you get paranoid that communism is going to take over the world. We were essentially going in to do a government intervention for what we believed to be in our best interests. Situation's a little different in Uganda. In Uganda, a civil war has been raging for over 20 years between the government and the Lord's Resistance Army, led by Joseph Kony, a self-proclaimed prophet. The LRA wreaks havoc on the people, killing, plundering, raping, and kidnapping. Worst of all is the fact that they abduct children, then force them to fight in a very real war with very real guns against very real people, who they may have known before. The rebel army is at its weakest point in years, with only about 3,000 total soldiers from liberal estimates, 1,000 by more conservative numbers. Americans have been doing volunteer work in Uganda for years at hospitals and psych wards for people who escape the LRA after having been child soldiers. The people there are desperate for help, versus Vietnam where they were wondering where we were coming from as there wasn't much of a problem in their country at the time. All the same, it doesn't take much to sign a paper to send 100 guys who are not allowed to engage in direct combat, so just something else Obama's trying to get through so that he can add it to his resume for the next election.
It’s not necessarily crime. The exception to the Posse Comitatus Act is that federal troops like Army and Marines can be called to deal with mass lawlessness, insurrection, and rebellion per the Insurection Act.1992 LA riots was a good example of this. This is no kidding Soldiers and Marines armed and ready to use lethal force if needed.2009 Geneva County massacre near Samson, AL involved troops from Ft. Rucker to set up road blocks to contain the mass shooter. It was in violation of the Posse Comitatus Act and as a result the Army Officer who ordered the troops out was disciplined.JTF-Katrina- this was coordinated with the DoD and FEMA in response to Hurricane Katrina. DoD troops were used to assist in search and rescue and deliver supplies. I think this was mostly Guardmen but there were Navy Sailors, Airmen, Soldiers and some Marines (mostly from 4th Marine Division). Some of the Soldiers and USAF Security Forces guys were armed to provide security. Most other units provided support (logistics, communication, medical, search and rescue, intelligence and other relief efforts.)Waco- Military personnel only supported the operation and SF- detachment delta were observers. The assault on the compound involved all LEO personnel.
