CNN is reporting that the Pentagon will recommend deploying ground troops to Syria to expedite the fight against ISIS in the region. President Trump has instructed the Defense Department to come up with a strategy to take on the radical Islamic terror group by the end of the month. Barbara Starr, the Pentagon correspondent for the news network had more on this. Right now, it’s merely a point of discussion, she says.
It's possible that you may see conventional forces hit the ground in Syria for some period of time," one defense official told CNN.
Conventional troop deployment was anathema to the Obama administration, whose entire policy in the region looked increasingly ridiculous.
