The war in Syria is being prosecuted by American Trained GCC special forces organizing and leading the Syrian Rebels. From what I can see, it is going slow, but well.
The original intent of American Special Forces was to provide leadership for local troops to make war against the bad guys.
What could possibly go wrong? I spent a couple of years bopping around the Dark Continent. From what I’ve seen of African military forces, they’re like gangs in Chicago or Detroit.
