Multinational military exercise 'Eager Lion' has been launched in Jordan amid condemnation from neighboring Syria and its ally Russia. The US brings Patriot missile batteries to the Syrian border, which could remain deployed afterwards.
The exercises will last for 12 days, bringing together about 8,000 personnel from 19 countries, mostly Arabic, but also including the US and Europe. The maneuvers will also involve some 3,000 Jordanian and 500 British troops.

Obama created the Arab spring which is becoming "THE PERFECT STORM"
This is at least the third annual military exercise in Jordan.
Obama, Al Qaeda Alliy
I thought I read earlier we had boots on the ground in Syria??? Whats the boy doing??
Obama might be “the leader of al-Qaeda in America”.
Yes, he very well could
Didn’t I read 300 troops earlier today? By tomorrow morning it’ll be 10,000.
U. S. troops that is...
SO when the red line of dead American forces is crossed, how many months will it take for Obama to respond?
We do, by proxy. They're called Jihadists....Obama's/Clinton's version of mercenaries
Soooo we have American troops on both sides??
So the troops were already there just as I said earlier. Obama is more of a warmonger than Bush. Bush at lest went to the UN to petition before he deployed anybody. Obama just goes to war with no consultation from any nation or the UN
Nor any consultation with the Congress. But I guess consulting with Congress about war has gone out of style.
I really have to wonder if this is just a chance to get rid of some conservative Americans.
Isn’t Meggido, as in Armageddon, near the Syrian border?
This isn’t going to end well, for our troops.
You just know that we are so going into Syria. Its just a matter of what day. Congress needs to shut off the funds.
Don’t be silly.
Didn’t you hear BO’s new UN Ambassador?
Those troops are there to occupy Jerusalem.
