Too Little, Too Late? US Special Forces Arrive in Iraq

A U.S. contingent of 150 special forces has arrived in Iraq as part of its promised military aid in the fight against terror there.

Washington told the Iraqi government it would help the country fight the Sunni Muslim Al Qaeda-linked Islamic State of Iraq in the Levant (ISIL) guerrilla forces who have taken over nearly a third of the country.

The American special forces are intended to help the Iraqi military fight the terrorists, according to a Pentagon spokesperson, who said they had already “begun their work in the field.”

However, it’s questionable whether the aid sent by the U.S. will be adequate to deal with the situation at this point. ISIL forces have taken over nearly the entire northern region and much of the central area as well, in addition to a large swathe of territory along the Iraqi-Syrian border.

  1. they’re there as special menu.

  2. No NO not to assist the military in fighting Sunni Muslim ISIL terrorists !!! not at all , those come to Iraq to lead the process of dividing Iraq to three independent states one for shia one for sonni one for kurds.

  3. Couldn’t send them in too soon; they’d have the advantage and I think the Obama administration kind of wanted ISIS to have the upper hand.

  4. Jeff Wilson says:

    obama will help isis if he does thing like he normally does

  5. They should teach Americans that they very good fighter.
    I worry about the American army fighting this terrorists.
