Why not send 3 Ranger battalions to Iraq/Syria?

To hunt down ISIS?

Rangers are not conventional boots on the ground.

ISIS has already killed a former Ranger and thousands of civilians!

Why not send them to Mexico instead? The cartels are just as brutal, and a far bigger threat to the US.

Have you seen the movie blackhawk down?

Why not end the war on drugs, build electric cars, and never kill for others' resources...

At this point, why would anyone advocate sending a single U.S. troop to the middle east or north Africa?  At all?

All 3 batts at once? Nah nigga Phone Post 3.0

One platoon of OG'ers would suffice. Phone Post 3.0

I think a 'Dirty Dozen' type mission would be better.

All surviving members get blue names for life.
Each Team Member would be a specialist in some thing - like one guy would great at photoshop and another at posting pics of rotties.

actually, if you consider how many ex military we have here like jedburgh1, etc. it would be a pretty awesome team. and you could throw in it and comm experts, etc.

We just need to send Kirik's "top men" to topple their communication/computer network. Phone Post 3.0

You can send in any infantry unit and search for a fight.

ISIS will eventually hide weapons and blend back into the population. The Sunni population will assume that we joined up with the Shias.

After we leave... they will start this over again and will continue to have the majority of support of the Sunni population.

Then we can debate why so and so pulled troops out to soon etc. instead of understanding/learning why these morons will continue to moron.

Rinse and repeat, we will never learn from history. But those freedom fries are so tasty... Just try a few more and be like us!

Find a dictator to run that country ASAP. The only thing they can organize is a soccer match.

Haven't you heard? ISIS is the CIA middle east operation.
They are using our weapons. They have been trained by us and Mossad. They are financed by Saudi Arabia. Our air strikes are targeting Syria infrastructure. Our weapons drops seem to land in their hands. We shoot down Syria's air defense who are fighting ISIS. Turkey is smuggling in soldiers and weapons in UN humanitarian aid vehicles.

Every outcome of our intervention seems to backfire in support of the radicals in Iraq, Syria, Libya, Egypt, and those African counties you hear about. This cannot be by mistake because world leaders could be this stupid and double down on the same stupidity. We are being lied to and they are caught constantly.

Who wants to see more Americans killed on the ground? What we are doing now is the correct strategy. Provide arms, air support, and recon while training THEIR ground forces to do the fighting on the ground. Phone Post 3.0

And to those that say "send American forces to take out the cartels" that is absurd on many levels. Phone Post 3.0

False equivalency, not to mention those are two entirely seperate issues on their own that need to be handled in different ways. Phone Post 3.0

Why ? ISIS is not our problem. Phone Post 3.0
