Obama Sends in Still More Troops to Syria, Says it Reflects 'Success'

President Obama's "Boots on the Ground" Strategy has worked so well, he now needs to send 500 more boots (250 more troops) to Syria.

Obama says sending more troops to Syria reflects the "success" of his plan.

Curiously, Obama's often repeated plan was not more boots on the ground, but rather "No Boots on the Ground".

Please consider US to Send 250 More Troops to Syria

The US is to send an additional 250 troops to Syria, significantly expanding its military presence in the country in an effort to increase the pressure on Isis.

Announcing the deployment on Monday, President Barack Obama said the troops would help local forces fighting the militant group in its Syria strongholds. The decision will increase the number of US personnel in Syria to 300.

Mr Obama said the decision reflected the "success" of the 50-strong special operations force deployed to Syria in October to train and assist US-backed groups.

The new commitment, which follows the decision last week to send a further 250 troops to Iraq, comes as the peace talks in Geneva involving the Syrian opposition and the regime are close to collapse.

On April 19, I wrote Obama "No Boots on the Ground" Sends More Boots on the Ground.

Today we learn breaking pledges to send in no troops is a measure of success.
