It looks like Trump is preparing to make good on his promise to re-invade Iraq and steal their oil.
The U.S. military is sending 2,500 more ground troops to back up forces supposedly battling ISIS in Iraq and Syria.
Mint Press News reported that instead of directly deploying thousands of additional ground troops into Iraq or Syria, the sort of precipitous escalation that might get Congress voting on the war, the Trump Administration appears to have decided that the solution is to send thousands of US ground troops to Kuwait, and let the commanders in Iraq and Syria just take what they want.
Reports of this strategy emerged Wednesday, when officials said there were considerations of sending around 1,000 troops into Kuwait for this operation. Just two days later, the figure was up to at least 2,500, with signs that it will continue to Increase.
While President Obama was micromanaging the escalations, particularly in Iraq, where every couple of weeks another hundred or two troops would be sent, the Trump Administration appears to be throwing the troops into a big pile and leaving the deployments up to the commanders.
It seems like President Trump is going to take the back seat on the military escalation ride, letting military commanders make most of the decisions, even on troop numbers. This should raise further questions about the intentions of those commanders if they no longer have to get permission first.
