US: Asks Germany to send troops to...Syria

(Berlin) James Jeffrey the US Special Representative for Syria Engagement was in Berlin on Friday in which to ask the German government to send military trainers, logistics specialists, and technicians to help the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in the fight against the Islamic State (IS) terrorist group. In an interview with the German dpa news agency and the weekly Welt am Sonntag newspaper he stated:

"We want ground troops from Germany to partially replace our soldiers,"
He added he expected the answer from the German government this month. Something tells me the answer is going to be...NO.
