One of America’s most celebrated generals, David Patreaus has issued a very public warning, on Charlie Rose’s PBS show, to NOT put boots on the ground in Syria. He has stated that the effort would be filled with inherent dangers that our military would find sustainable. He was quite cryptic in his warning. What could he be talking about? What is he is talking about is now becoming quite clear. The Russians are in possession of weapons for which our military, in which technological innovation has been held in a state of suspended animation since the advent of the Obama administration, cannot hope to compete with on the battlefield. When Obama condemns our young men and women to death when he deploys entire units of ground troops to Syria, I feel that America has a right to know the position that this President has placed our soldiers into a situation in which they cannot win.
