U.S. Marines Are On The Ground In Syria!
The 11th Marine Expeditionary Unit has quietly inserted Marines into Syria over the past few weeks to establish an artillery base to support forces pushing forward into Raqqa.
The Defense Department is not giving up any information on the exact size of the Marine Detachment in Syria now, but have revealed the unit consist of Artillery Batteries, Support Personnel, and Infantry Marines.
The Marines will be inflicting damage with the M777 155mm Howitzers, capable of effectively firing high-explosive rounds on target more than 14 miles away, or GPS-guided Excalibur Rounds on target as far as 25 miles away.
The Infantry Marines have no limitation on effective range… They can and will follow the enemy straight to hell!
News of Marines being on the ground in Syria comes not long after U.S. Army Stryker Combat Vehicles were spotted in Northeast Syria. Air Force Col John Dorrian, a spokesman for Combined Joint Task Force, Operation Inherent Resolve thought it wise to confirm via Twitter that American troops were in fact near Manbij about 90 miles Northwest of Raqqa.

This quiet build up of American troops should come as no surprise to those who have been paying attention. President Trump was recently presented with options from the Pentagon on how to take the fight to ISIS and defeat them once and for all. President Trump has also made it know during his campaign that he would not be giving advanced notice to anyone, so that the element of surprise could be maintained.

If I were to place a bet on where ISIS was heading in the future… I’d put my money on them heading straight to hell!
Pray for our American Warriors and their leaders…
