WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama says the U.S. is prepared to take targeted military actions in Iraq if they would help fight a growing threat from extremist militants. He also says the U.S. is ready to send as many as 300 military advisers to Iraq.
Obama is offering an update to U.S. operations in Iraq, where al-Qaeda-inspired militants have sparked instability. He says the United States is forming joint operations centers in Baghdad and northern Iraq.
But Obama emphasizes that American combat troops would not be returning to Iraq.
Obama says the U.S. has increased its intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance operations in Iraq to better understand the threats to Baghdad.

Oh ya, just ask the 400 guys that "advised" in Vietnam in 1961 if they saw COMBAT! History is repeating itself again. Remember in 2008 when this idiot President talked about Iraq? Looks like He is the moron driving the bus into the ditch this time with his foot on the gas, buried to the floor! It won't escalate, it will only "surge". Check my math..........100 Green Berets divided by 12 man teams = 8.33 teams. Spread that out across a hostile country equals a recipe for disaster!
