While global stock markets fail to rebound from recent lows, the US military is using every available distraction to build up the military presence in Iraq, and as the US defense secretary admitted moments ago:
- CARTER SAYS 3,700 U.S. `BOOTS ON THE GROUND’ IN IRAQ TODAY
Considering a typical battalion has anywhere between 300 and 800 soldiers, at what point does the Pentagon stop calling it the politically palatable “boots on the ground” and start calling it what it really is: an army?
And how long until someone asks when Congress will approve what at this point amounts to yet another invasion force?
