It appears that we will be sending 400 more US "trainers" to Iraq to support (by supposed training) their fight against ISIS.

What does RP think? Good idea or do you think it will lead to direct US involvement?

More troops are needed if we want to put and end to ISIS.

Unless we commit with the full force of the US Military like we did before we are never going to make progress. 5 Airstrikes a week isn't a winning strategy, although I'm no military tactician so what do I know...

Looks like window dressing to me. The problem isn't with the training. A long term change of attitude is needed. Basically, they need babysitting at least until everyone from 9 years up is dead.

I predict that this administration will only do the minimal amount to deflect political fallout until the end of his term.

Join nearly 2 million former and current members of the US military, just like you.
