US officials told Reuters that President Donald Trump ‘s management is considering the deployment of up to 1,000 US troops in Kuwait as a reserve in the war on Daesh in Iraq and Syria , with accelerated pace.
Officials said in favor of this option , which was not announced by the Americans that it allows commanders on the ground a greater degree of flexibility to respond quickly to opportunities that may suddenly arises and challenges that may arise on the battlefield.
This option would represent a departure from what had been the practice in the era of President Barack Obama ‘s administration because it would leave the local leaders the final decision on the transfer of some of these reserve soldiers stationed in Kuwait to Syria or Iraq.
He said a US official on condition his identity kept confidential , “This is about making available options.”
