Have we learned nothing?

So…

After our intervention in Iraq, which was a near defeat that was turned into a victory by Bush, and then lost again by Obama, plus our disaster of an intervention in Libya, and now the war slipping away in Afghanistan, who in their right mind would put troops in harm’s way for the benefit the Islamists who are endemic throughout the Middle East?

Yeah, that guy. 

From the Marine Corps News, (or as that guy says, “The Marine Corpse News.”)

BRUSSELS — The United States has sent military troops to the Jordan-Syria border to bolster that country’s military capabilities in the event that violence escalates along its border with Syria, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said Wednesday.

Speaking at a NATO conference of defense ministers in Brussels, Panetta said the U.S. has been working with Jordan to monitor chemical and biological weapons sites in Syria and also to help Jordan deal with refugees pouring over the border from Syria. The troops are also building a headquarters for themselves.

Of course, those chemical and biological weapons were manufactured by Assad’s regime…all by their lonesome, right?  Right?…

Riiiiight

The liberal press is careful to insulate Obama from the decision to put our Marines there, but in the end, he is the Commander in Chief.

Yes, yes, I know there are special forces in many areas of the world we are not “officially” putting troops in, but I sense something’s different in this case.
