Major growing terrorist activities and threats within Romania has resulted, through negotiation between Romania and U.S., a plan to send over 2,000 U.S. troops to assist Romania.
Romania is seeking membership in the EU but has to curb its illegal criminal gangs, smugglers of all kinds and militant Arabs or Kurds operating there. Since the fall of the Ceausescu regime in 1989 Romania has become a breeding ground of terrorist activity.
Never, since the end of the "Cold War" has U.S. forces been spread so thin across the globe. Our troops are stationed and operating on every continent in over 200 countries. Many of which we would never have been there during the cold war, such as many of the former Soviet controlled countries.
Never in our history has our military been spread so thin, that we have to resort to calling up Reserve and National Guard forces on a regular basis. Today it is almost a guarantee for any member of the Reserve and National Guard to see some type of combat or oversea duty during their term of service.
A Little known fact, not reported by most of our main stream media, is last weeks incursion of U.S. and Iraqi forces into Syria from the Iraq side. The operation main object was to get at the terrorist camps operating in Syria.
Last month many artillery attacks against U.S. and Iraqi forces originated from Syria soil.
Officials reported that 10 Marines were killed in fighting during this operation. And a total of 139 terrorists were killed and 256 were processed for detention during the operation.
