U.S. Military in Jordan

A U.S. military team have been posted to the Jordan-Syria border but Washington is denying any direct involvement in Syria.

Troops have been sent to help set up a headquarters and support the country’s military strength in the event that violence escalates along the Syrian border. Additionally, the U.S. is said to be monitoring chemical and biological weapon sites in Syria as well as helping with the flow of refugees pouring in over the border into Jordan.

Although denying involvement in the fued, with Turkey tightening and strengthening their border with artillery guns and fighter jets, it is hard to see the U.S. withstanding from involvement if the civil war spills over Syria’s borders and becomes a regional affair.
