Default U.S. Urges Turkey to Seal Border

Obama telling OTHER countries to seal their border...

U.S. Urges Turkey to Seal Border

Quote:
The Obama administration is pressing Turkey to deploy thousands of additional troops along its border with Syria to cordon off a 60-mile stretch of frontier that U.S. officials say is used by Islamic State to move foreign fighters in and out of the war zone.

The U.S. hasnít officially requested a specific number of soldiers. Pentagon officials estimated that it could take as many as 30,000 to seal the border on the Turkish side for a broader humanitarian mission. Cordoning off just one section alone could take 10,000 or more, one official estimated.

Itís unclear how Turkey will respond. Turkish officials said they agree that tighter border control is necessary, and have begun implementing some measures. They suggested that the Pentagon troop estimates are inflated, but declined to give a number of their own.

Laughable, isn't it?

Granted, I can't read the whole story because I don't have an account... but it's pathetic how it seems our government will want to go to war with Russia if they keep trying to "meddle" in this issue by trying to go after ISIS as well.

Though, on an unrelated note: A rather telling statistic this year that has come out is that more Mexicans are *leaving* this country now than coming in.

I can't even begin to describe the train wreck inside Obama's brain that prevents rational thought to flow through.

Obama either has a severe mental disease or is just a giant hypocrite who doesn't care how ridiculous and hypocritical his words and actions are.
