Rogers: Can't rule out boots on the ground in Syria

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers said on Sunday it's important not to rule out putting troops on the ground in Syria to combat the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, but smaller, more targeted steps are needed first.

For example, placing special capability soldiers among Syrian rebels will help them fight better, the Michigan Republican said on CBS' "Face the Nation." The U.S. also needs a better strategy for combating ISIL, Rogers said. After meeting with British officials, he said a lack of strategy in the U.S. is a glaring problem.

"I think what shocked our British friends is this lack of strategy," he said. "I think that they’ll be with us if we can put together a coherent strategy for Syria and Iraq. I really do believe that."

"If you think about what we’re doing, it’s really small pecks at a really big problem," Rogers added.

Placing special capability soldiers among Syrian rebels doesn't exactly qualify as putting boots on the ground, he said.

CODSWALLOP, INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE CHAIRMAN ROGERS!!

Embedding "special capacity soldiers" with Syrian rebels on the ground, means that the US government has its military's boots on the ground, period, end of discussion.

And it is utterly no secret, sir, that the US is hoping to achieve regime change in Syria in order to engineer regime change in Iran, in spite of the accords the P5 + 1 and their Iranian counterparts are desperately working to hammer out regarding Iran's nuclear energy program before the deadline of 24 November.

I would like to strongly caution you, sir, that such a war against Iran may well wind up with Russia deciding that it will join such a confrontation on the side of the Iranian government.

As you well know from your briefings on the US government's military status, our country's military does not have the troop strength, the money, or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome in such a confrontation.

And if you thing you can convince the very war-weary American public that another shooting war in the Middle East is a good idea, you are very, very sorely mistaken, and completely, in-your-face, out of touch with your constituents.

These wars are for the protection of the hegemony of the US dollar and corporate profit; they do nothing to enhance our freedoms, safety, and way of life.
