A Military Assistance and Advisory Group (MAAG) has been deployed to advise on strategy, and train soldiers, supplying small arms and spent US$1 billion in support of the opposition military effort and is shouldering 80 percent of the cost of the war. These are not boots on the ground but advisers and more information other than what is prescribed, could jeopardize covert actions in place. Sound familiar? That was the official action to statements as we entered the Vietnam War. A day late but never short because, as we can see, history has repeated itself; Are U.S. Troops Already on the Ground in Libya?
March 24, 2011 The Obamanation of a false truth; a lie, No troops from the US will be on the ground. NO BOOTS ON THE GROUND, says President Obama. A slight dissemination of the truth, is what? If it were Spooks, they would be civilians, a.k.a. CIA but its a group of Intel used in painting a target, US Military, BOOTS ON THE GROUND! Boots on the ground in Vietnam started before I was born, 1950 and escalated to full scale combat, with additional, boots on the ground and spooks in the grass; where we were not fighting, Cambodia, Laos and other resorts of such. Turns out, according to this report from FOX, Boots have been pounding the ground for 12 days now. Wonder how long to how many will get to see the sands of Africa. He, the President did say he had a job plan. Maybe he is going to reinstate the draft. That would put many a boot on the ground and America back to work, at war?
