Turkey threatens as U.S. deploys troops in Syria | UPI.com

As the Syrian war edges toward its seventh year on Wednesday, several hundred elite U.S. Army Rangers and Marines with heavy artillery have deployed in northern Syria in a modest but significant military escalation by U.S. President Donald Trump in the campaign against the Islamic State that may further expand in the coming weeks.

U.S. officials on Wednesday said the Trump administration could base up to 1,000 U.S. troops in Kuwait to serve as a fast-reaction reserve force in the battle against IS — a move that strongly suggests Trump is prepared to substantially raise the stakes in Syria after years of half-hearted U.S. involvement.
