                    How is this BS even legal? 

      The Pentagon is planning to use small units of Special Forces to carry out missions against ISIS inside Syria after withdrawing its troops from the country, the New York Times reported on December 22, citing U.S. officials.

       

      It remains unclear if Trump would approve these plans, especially that the cost of operations in Syria and the high pressure from Turkey, were among the key reasons that pushed him towards pulling the plug on military presence in Syria. The Pentagon’s new plans don’t address any of these problems.

      When was that? 2014 or 2015, I think.

      We have the power to do so, therefore we have the right. Very Roman Empire of us.

       

      I wonder though what will happen if some of these units get bombed or otherwise blown up by Syrian Army or Russian Units? Will we send more missiles to blow up things over there?
