Taking an opposite approach than Obama, Trump has deployed troops to Syria to establish an outpost to take back Raqqa from the Islamic State.
As reported by Washington Post:
Marines from an amphibious task force have left their ships in the Middle East and deployed to Syria. The force is part of the 11th Marine Expeditionary Unit, which left San Diego on Navy ships in October. It includes parts of an artillery battery that can fire powerful 155-millimeter shells from M777 Howitzers, two officials said, speaking on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the deployment. The expeditionary unit’s ground force, Battalion Landing Team 1st Battalion, 4th Marines, will man the guns and deliver fire support for U.S.-backed local forces who are preparing an assault on the city. Additional infantrymen from the unit are likely to provide security.
The deployment comes as the senior U.S. officials consider ways to accelerate the campaign against the Islamic State. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis recently delivered to the White House a plan requested by President Trump.
