US Troops in Jordan Prepare for War with Syria, Syria Prepares Chemical Weapons

Some special forces troops being withdrawn from Iraq are now stationed in Jordan near the border of Syria. They are there to prepare for war with Syria.
Syria has been building up troops and tanks on the border with Jordan because Jordan has allowed opposition groups to smuggle arms into Syria to fight against the Assad regime. Syria has threatened to attack Jordan if it continues, which it no doubt has.
So the US is now directly facing off against Syria, as never before. With "boots on the ground", preparing the way for more US military involvement, it's only a matter of time before the fuse is lit and war breaks out.
Unfortunately Syria is a client state of Iran and Russia. The Russians have transferred state-of-the-art missiles to Syria that can penetrate our latest aircraft carriers. So in addition to the Russian warships stationed in Syrian waters, there is a real threat to the US battle group gathering there.
So with the US hamstrung in the Med, it has turned to its ally, Jordan to defend it against an attack from Syria, and as a possible launch pad for US forces to go attack Syria directly, in addition to all the other US bases surrounding Syria in Turkey, Iraq (soon to be vacated!) and Israel.
Are YOU ready for WWIII?

You are talking to a leftist. I believe in the redistribution of wealth and power in the world. I believe in universal hospital care for everyone. I believe that we should not have a single homeless person in the richest country in the world. And I believe that we should not have a C.I.A. that goes around overwhelming governments and assassinating political leaders, working for tight oligarchies around the world to protect the tight oligarchy here at home."
