15,000 boots on the ground already…. in Jordan

We are looking more and more like we are going to step into a huge mess in syria and make things worse…. especially since there seems to be little strategic planning and little consideration of how Resistance Axis actors will react….

Very shortsighted and ill considered… plus it seems there already are plenty of boots on the ground, according to this report
“This proposed operational framework is related to the Syrian wing of ISIL’s forces and requires, out of strategic and defensive caution, the deployment of military forces along the Jordanian-Syrian border to protect Jordan… In parallel, the paperwork required by the relatively “long residence” of more than 15,000 American Special Forces on the Jordanian border with Syria was completed, including the provision of food, water and logistic support. These forces might be deployed on the border near Daraa, in light of Jordanian fears of seeing the extremist fighters “fleeing” to Jordan if they are cornered around Daraa, Deir Ezzor and Raqqa…”
