U.S. Sending 400 Trainers And Hundreds More Troops For The Syrian Train And Equip Mission

http://www.fortunascorner.wordpress.com

Various news outlets this morning are reporting that the Obama administration will deploy 400 U.S. military trainers, and hundreds more support personnel — to four training sites — in three countries, as early as March, as part of a long-awaited plan to help rebel forces stabilize Syria. Gordon Lubold, writing on this morning’s DefenseOne.com, writes that “coalition partners (Turkey, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia) are also expected to contribute as well, for an effort that — for now — is envisioned to train about 5.400 forces each year for three years. The training is expected to take six to eight weeks; but, we all know how these kind of plans go — nothing goes as expected. V/R, RCP
