An analyst says following the debacles and disasters in Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan, the U.S. military has actually adopted a new role to avoid direct engagement, like in Syria, to go underground and conduct secret operations.
Gordon Adams wrote on the website of Foreign Policy on Wednesday: “The decision to pull back on massive engagements of military force does not mean force is not going to be used. It just goes underground.”
He added: “Arguably, today the U.S. military is more involved than ever overseas, on a global basis, carrying out missions that extend well beyond classic military competencies.”
Adams said that the approach, described by the Pentagon and the White House as “building partner capacity” is a “stealthy” model which focuses on training and equipping the troops from other countries, allowing the US military to make smaller deployments to more countries across the world.
He said the U.S. has indirectly and unofficially been facilitating the deployment of arms to the militants in Syria while the White House only recently authorized the CIA to provide the armed groups in the Arab country with more weapons.
The article read: “But well before this announcement, lethal weapons had been flowing to the Syrian rebels. While the hardware was not supplied from American stocks, the United States has been playing an active role in facilitating the traffic.”
