We have also agreed this is a dialogue between us that will continue," Kerry told reporters in Beijing. But he seemed to suggest new Western sanctions against Russia were not imminent. "The choices Russia makes will decide what happens with respect to sanctions in the long run here," Kerry said, adding he hoped a ceasefire agreement in Ukraine would remain viable.

In exclusive interviews with WND, retired U.S. Army Lt. Gen. William “Jerry” Boykin and retired U.S. Army Maj. Gen. Paul E. Vallely condemned Obama’s decision, as U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel approved up to 4,000 boots on the ground from a previous ceiling of 3,000.

    President Obama would back U.S. advisers accompanying Iraqi troops in battle to combat Islamic State militants if necessary. For now, Dempsey noted, Iraqi security forces are "doing fine," but as Republican, Sen. Jim Inhofe noted, "it is foolhardy for the Obama administration to tie its hands and so firmly rule out the possibility of special operators on the ground." Following Hagel's remarks that the fight will "not be an easy or a brief effort," Dempsey said if it doesn’t succeed, he would not rule out advising Obama to use U.S. ground forces.

    There will be 1,600 U.S. troops in Iraq by the time President Obama’s current plans are fully in place — but none of those are considered combat troops, which means the U.S. is not officially reengaged in the war there, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel told Congress on Tuesday.

    cns news ^ | 9/15/14 | staff
    (CNSNews.com) - Asked if the United States has found any country "that is willing to put troops on the ground" in Syria and Iraq, Secretary of State John Kerry told CBS's "Face the Nation" on Sunday, "Well, we're not looking to put boots on the ground. There are some who have offered to do so. But we are not looking for that, at this moment, anyway." President Obama has said the effort to defeat ISIS/ISIL in Iraq and Syria will not involve American "boots on the ground." Obama says other countries must step up.

    When asked by “Meet The Press” host Chuck Todd if any nation has committed to putting boots on the ground in Syria to combat ISIS, White House Chief Of Staff Denis McDonough said “we’re not looking at that now.” Todd shot back, “Wait a minute, why not?” “We’re trying to put together the specifics of what we expect from each of the members” said the White House flack, referring to the “broad coalition” President Obama referenced in his speech Wednesday night. McDonough tried to walk back his initial quote though. ‘”If you know you need combat troops on the ground,...

    A former Virginia Tech English professor who lost a job offer from the University of Illinois over dozens of sometimes-profane Twitter messages that critics deemed anti-Semitic demanded Tuesday that he be given the position and threatened to take legal action otherwise. Attorneys for Steven Salaita said during a news conference at a YMCA on the Urbana-Champaign campus that they believe the university’s Board of Trustees will make a decision on his hiring during a meeting scheduled for Thursday. If he isn’t given the job, they said they’ll go to court to try to get an injunction to force the university...

    Pray For Our American Heroes and Our Nation The War of 1812 No king is saved by the size of his army; no warrior escapes by his great strength.

But the eyes of the LORD are on those who fear him, on those whose hope is in his unfailing love, to deliver them from death and keep them alive in famine. Psalm 33:16-19 (NIV) ----

The president insisted that the situation in West Africa remains a serious national security concern. International medical organizations such as Doctors Without Borders have reportedly petitioned to...
