"No ground troops in Syria", Obama
April 24 , 2016
President Barack Obama said in an interview that United States will not send any ground troops to overthrow the Assad Regime in Syria, and also advised the same to Great Britan. He admitted that he did not think the Islamic State can be defeated in the remaining tenure of his office. However, he said “We can slowly shrink the environment in which they operate.” US-led coalition will continue to strike ISIS targets and try to isolate those places from where it is sending fighters to Europe.
