U.S. moving 150 Marines closer to South Sudan

The U.S. military is moving about 150 Marines from Spain to Africa, most likely Djibouti, to be prepared to go into South Sudan to either provide security for the U.S. Embassy in Juba or to help evacuate the estimated 100 U.S. citizens believed to be there, two U.S. military officials told CNN's Barbara Starr on Monday.

    Let's hope not. That would be a travesty.

    Now we have to go to war in Africa?
    What's in it for us?
    Are they sure that we have to give a war there?
    Is it for Christmas?

    Lol @ Joey, those warmongers in Congress HAD to find one somewhere! And now that they've angered Israel with our spying on them, it don't look like they will be asking us to go to war with Iran or Syria for them!

    Speaking of Israel, they're at it again. They've launched another airstrike in Ghaza! But they arent the aggressive ones eh?

    an Arab was killed in the sniper attack and Netanyahu vowed to not let it go unanswered.The mighty IDF then killed a 4 yr old girl in retaliation.

    Arent they something? They have an airstrike on Gaza and then cry foul when one of their soldiers is killed! Oh and even tho THEIR military claims he was a soldier, Netanyahusanidiot says he wasnt. I dont think that man has a clue about anything!
