  •  We're already in a proxy war with Syria (3+ / 0-)

    US Special Forces and CIA operators are training the rebels in neighboring countries. Clearly there's a danger that this could escalate to the point where it involves our people in direct combat. Part of the problem here is that we have a larger group of military and paramilitary personnel who are off the books. The temptation on policymakers to use them to fix problems directly will grow the more we commit. And such use could easily add to that level of commitment.
