'US preparing public opinion for greater military involvement in Iraq, Syria' — RT Op-Edge: "Advise and assist’ is a mellow term for domestic use in America, where Middle East wars of the past 15 years are very unpopular, analysts told RT, adding that the US is preparing for a larger reengagement of ground troops in Iraq.

Islamic State, Syria unrest
This week, the US government admitted for the first time that its troops are fighting on the front line against Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) in Iraq. The Pentagon said American troops have come under fire in the embattled city of Mosul. The statement contradicts earlier claims that US personnel were merely serving as advisers in the battle to retake the city.

According to Brian Becker of ANSWER coalition, the American involvement in combat operation “has been going on for some time.” 

“We know that American troops have been wounded, taking casualties in Iraq in the fighting, including in the battle for East Mosul,” he told RT. "
