BRUSSELS (AP) The United States has sent military troops to the Jordan-Syria border to bolster that country's military capabilities in the event that violence escalates along its border with Syria, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said Wednesday.
Speaking at a NATO conference of defense ministers in Brussels, Panetta said the U.S. has been working with Jordan to monitor chemical and biological weapons sites in Syria and also to help Jordan deal with refugees pouring over the border from Syria. The troops are also building a headquarters for themselves.

I hope they let our troops have live ammo.
I guess this can only mean one thing. The chemical weapons are on the move...
Has anyone told the moderator yet? I have a hunch most of her questions will be about Sesame Street.
It looks to me that 0bama is setting up an October surprise.
Didn't Reagan try this back in the 80's about 60 miles down the road? As I recall it turned out badly.
Since Obama attended her wedding, she should have sold all those wedding gifts she got and donated the money to Bambi's campaign. Sure the gifts are old and broken, but I'm sure there are plenty of Obamabots out there who'd buy them.
Probably not well supported if they get into anything.
OK, Well, The King is the next target of ‘Arab Spring’; Muslim Brotherhood / Al Qaeda to depose.
Whos side will these troops will be told be on when push comes to shove? The King, who has been a pretty good friend to the USA, or 0bama’s brothers in the MB?
They're not broken. Just a bit scuffed up, but they'll run fine with new 'D' batteries.
Wasn’t this supposed to be a secret??? Will they be armed with bean bags???
I am sure OblameA told her at the wedding.
Well isn’t that special?
Will the Enemamedia tell the world WHERE those weapons came from? NOOOO but I will - IRAQ
Poor guys. It would be terrible to be them. Pawns in a political game played by fools.
This is a bad idea. It is a setup for trouble.
If they get in trouble they will get no help at all from either the Jordanians or the Syrians.
Looks like the largest muzzie nation now has Israel surrounded.
And they have Iraqi unit markings on them...
OBAMA IS A WAR-MONGER!
Anybody watching cspan Issa hearings? May be cut off unpredictably if HOR resumes, but this would make a thread of its own.
Gulf War I style ?
