Black cop shoots unarmed white man in Utah. Apparently not newsworthy. Although people have been concerned with militarized police for a while, no screaming here.

<quoted text>IRAQ
So Wait, How Many US Troops Are Now In Iraq? And What Are They Doing?

President Barack Obama ordered up an additional 200 American military troops for deployment in Iraq on Monday, where they will be tasked with helping secure the US Embassy ae Baghdad International Airport. This latest move to increase US military presence in Iraq comes as the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) continues capturing territory in the country, and will bring the total number of US troops on the ground nationwide to 750.
Trying to figure out where those 750 are at any given moment, and what they're doing while they're there, is not easy.
"This force is deploying for the purpose of protecting US citizens and property, if necessary, and is equipped for combat," Obama said in a letter addressed to the US House of Representatives on Monday. "This force will remain in Iraq until the security situation becomes such that it is no longer needed."
This is who is fighting in Iraq and why. Read more here.
According to the Pentagon, the troops arrived on Sunday along with a detachment of helicopters and drones. They will integrate with troops sent in recent weeks to help protect the US embassy and personnel already in the area.
“The presence of these additional forces will help enable the embassy to continue its critical diplomatic mission and work with Iraq on challenges they are facing,” Rear Admiral John Kirby, a spokesman for the Pentagon, said in a statement.
'They will be very good at improving the immediate tactical proficiency of some of the Iraqi military, but they will be less prepared to address the longterm health of the Iraqi army.'
In a separate authorization, Obama also gave the green light for up to 300 personnel to take part in an advisory mission aimed at establishing two joint operations centers and providing support to Iraqi security forces in their battle against ISIS.
The Pentagon reported that a first joint operations center was opened in Baghdad on June 26 with the help of 90 American troops.
Just because someone tweets the word "troops" doesn't mean that we have "boots on the ground". The military has referred to these deployments as "forces", not "troops".

"What he’s (Obama) ruled out is reintroducing U.S. forces into combat on the ground in Iraq." Ben Rhodes, the deputy national security adviser, August 13, 2014

FORE! Score? And seven trillion rounds ago, our forecaddies brought forth on this continent a new playground, conceived by Robert Trent Jones, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal when it comes to spending as much time on the links as possible — even when it seems totally inappropriate, like moments after making a solemn statement condemning the grisly murder of a 40-year-old American journalist beheaded by ISIL.

You are exactly right USA whatever forces that are there aren't there in a combat role. But if attacked they have the proper training and arms to defend. Flack and most all of the righties on here are fanatical in nature and look for any and everything to paint the President in a bad light. But basically they end up showing their own ignorance and hatred.

And JFK's thousands of "military advisers" in Vietnam were also not considered "boots on the ground".

Last weekend a 22 year old young lady who was visiting Orlando with friends for the weekend was killed by a stray OPD round. Another young person, Kody Roach had been kicked out of a respectable downtown club when he became unruly__he returned with a stolen 40 cal pistol and began waving it around. It was unloaded__but who can tell__two officers approached the crazed white mofo and one tried to tase him but his shirt blocked the darts and the other officer opened fire hitting Roach multiple times.

Ricochet's killed the young lady and wounded an OPD Lt.

She was just out with her friends having some fun.

The young lady's family will win the insurance lottery while Kody Roach, who survived, will go to trial where his parents will explain what a nice young boy he is__when he's not drinking.

Darren Wilson’s 1st Police Force Shut Down by Racial Tension

Relations were so tense between white officers and black residents in Jennings, Mo., that the city council scrapped the department and hired a whole new force.

Three years ago, a small police department in Jennings, Mo., was so bedeviled by racial strife between its white officers and black residents that the city council fired the whole force and built a new one, the Washington Post reports.

One of the fired officers was Darren Wilson, 28, accused of shooting 18-year-old Michael Brown nearly two weeks ago on a hazy Saturday afternoon outside the youth’s housing complex in Ferguson, Mo., a predominantly black community.

In a step up from Jennings, Wilson, who is white, was hired three years ago by the Ferguson Police Department as a patrol officer. Indeed, Wilson, whose life has been marked by familial discord, including a recent split from his wife, hoped to find some semblance of normalcy working as a police officer, sources tell the Post.

“What he found in Jennings, however, was a mainly white department mired in controversy and notorious for its fraught relationship with residents, especially the African American majority,” the Washington Post writes.“It was not an ideal place to learn how to police."
