Sent to Syria? Not directly but the 26th MEU is participating in the exercise (Eager Lion) in Jordan. I say again, A Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU) is already on the ground in Jordan (next to Syria). Now, this exercise has been planned for some time as the Asoc press reads but know, it would be very easy to left turn into Syria, in a blink of an eye. Why do countries get so damn scared when US Navy ships are seen of the horizon? Because they are full of Marines, that’s why.
Although the exercise isn’t planned to go long, the US will leave some F16s & Patriot Missiles in Jordan. In case you didn’t know, F16 & Patriots are not, never been will never be apart of a MEU and thus this was planned in parallel. (I smell a "no fly zone" building) .
Your warriors are always in the middle of something. If there is trouble, and people need help, it isnt unusual to find Marines. Thats just how we are. America's 911 Force!
Time for a C-Gar
