Pentagon plan to seize Raqqa calls for significant increase in U.S. participation

A Pentagon plan for the coming assault on Raqqa, the Islamic State capital in Syria, calls for significant U.S. military participation, including increased Special Operations forces, attack helicopters and artillery, and arms supplies to the main Syrian Kurdish and Arab fighting force on the ground, according to U.S. officials.

The military’s favored option among several variations currently under White House review, the proposal would ease a number of restrictions on U.S. activities imposed during the Obama administration.

    Nuke the shithole and kill any freaks crawling out and be done with it.

  • Islam is a society wide, collective, mental disease, caused by Islamic theology.

    Yes we need to deal with any overt military/terrorists pockets.

    But the bigger “war” will not be won without dealing with the Islamic theology that causes the, society wide, collective, mental disease.

    In short; Without Islamic reformation, Islam will continue its expansion.

    Military only options will fail.

    We need a massive psychological assault on the Islamic “theological” base that creates what amounts to – the most virulent cult ever on earth.

    “RICO M3” can jump start Islam’s reformation, from right here in the USA.
