Pentagon officials confirmed that US ground troops were involved in a raid against a town in Somalia held by fighters of the ISIS afilliated al-Shabaab terror group. The US troops arrived by helicopter to engage the terrorists in a raid which also involved Somali forces, and which they say killed “more than 10″ fighters.
The US rarely discusses its troops in Somalia, which are nominally “advisers.” Officials suggested today that the troops were again in an “advisory” role and that they didn’t go “all the way” in the raid. They were however involved enough for al-Shabaab to confirm their involvement.
Shabaab reported that the attack killed one of their fighters, and only attacked a single checkpoint, as opposed to an entire town. Somali officials suggested the attack was aimed at an “illegal taxation checkpoint.”
This disputed death toll includes fatalities caused by a massive US drone strike against Somalia, which US officials claim killed over 150, Somali civilian officials claim killed over 200, and which al-Shabaab insisted killed far less, (they would say that, wouldn't they?) maintaining they never have that many of their fighters together in a single place.
Russia's Surprise Withdrawal From Syria? "If We Don't Go Away, We Can't Come back Again.
There is no doubt that the withdrawal is not quite what it seems to be, but more likely a tactical move by the Russians. The Kremlin feels it has done enough to secure the regime of President Assad, the remnants of the Sunni Muslim Free Syrian Army are no longer capable of mounting a challenge and the Syrians, along with Shi'ite militias in Iraq and Kurdish irregulars, backed by Iranian Republic an Guard troops ought to be capable of dealing with ISIS
