Trump's Sending 2500 More Troops To Support ISIS War

Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev left and President Vladimir Putin walk after the president delivered his annual state of the nation address in the Kremlin in Moscow Russia Thursday Dec. 1 2016

Although Turkey is a US ally in the war against ISIS, tensions prevail between the SDF and Arab-backed forces directed by Turkey, deployed west of the Euphrates river.

The Pentagon has deployed several hundred marines to Northern Syria, the Washington Post and CNN reported this week.

On March 6, Pentagon officials confirmed that USA -backed militia in Syria had taken control of a key route out of Raqqa, dealing an important setback to ISIS.

Putin greeted Erdogan at the start of the talks in the Kremlin on Friday and hailed close interaction between the two nations' militaries and special forces in Syria.

Asked about the impasse at a hearing Thursday of the Senate Armed Services Committee, the top U.S. commander in the region, General Joseph Votel, acknowledged that tensions between Ankara and the Kurds are near breaking point.

Koeman: Everton were outstanding
He has failed to assert himself in Spurs' team, and could be offered to Everton in a player exchange deal for Barkley. He had also managed 17 in 35 appearances in 2012-13 while on loan at West Brom, Saturday's victims.

"Despite a long road ahead for the USA -led coalition in its fight to counter the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, the enemy is being degraded by every measure and is on a trajectory to lasting defeat". U.S. forces hope to heap pressure on it from both sides so its fighters are not able to regroup.

"I don't think they have given up on the vision of their caliphate yet", the official said, noting that the jihadists hope to hold on to parts of eastern Syria and western Iraq. "The current focus is Raqqa", said Pentagon spokesman Col. John Thomas.

Leon Anderson's recent frail attempt to blame President Barack Obama for the tragic loss of lives in the Syrian civil war is an untenable assertion. This week's deployment is just the latest commitment to that aim.

Aside from ISIS, there are now three major local powers operating in the northern stretch of the country. Either side of that are areas dominated by Kurdish fighters and some smaller allied Arab rebel groups.

More American troops were needed to break the stalemate between the Afghan government and the Taliban, he explained.

Gander Mountain files for bankruptcy, will close Augusta store
Gander Mountain had previously announced plans to close two southwestern Pennsylvania stores, in Moon Township and West Mifflin. Gander Mountain operates four stores in southwestern Pennsylvania - in Johnstown, Washington, Monroeville and Greensburg.

The Marine mission has similarities to an operation the Marine Corps undertook about a year ago when the US military was preparing to support an assault on the Iraqi city of Mosul.

In-fighting between the Ankara backed rebels and the Kurdish led SDF in Manbij has seen questions raised on the when the offensive on Raqqa could begin.

The Trump administration believes that the pressure on ISIS in Raqqa is a crucial part of the general fight against the murderous terrorist organization.

Turkey opposes the use of YPG (a Kurdish acronym for People's Protection Units), preferring Turkish-backed Free Syrian Army forces as well as its own military. Kurdish forces, also known as the YPG, are viewed with no distinction from the PKK by the Turkish government and Turkey has labeled the PKK as a terrorist group, according to the Atlantic Council.

Rudskoi says the Syrian forces also reached the banks of the Euphrates River east of the town of Khafseh and now control a stretch of 15 kilometers, or 9 miles, along the river.

FCC to investigate AT&T 911 outage
AT&T said the problem also affected customers in Georgia, Texas, Kentucky, Indiana and Tennessee , the Orlando Sentinel reported . The spokesperson did not offer details on the extent of the issue or how many customers were affected.

Dorrian told The Associated Press by telephone that the USA -backed force will close in on Raqqa within a few weeks and warned that the battle for the city will likely be hard as the extremists are well dug in. "With the liberation of al-Bab, Turkey has now secured its border from ISIS".
