There is a plan by the US government to train 15,000 Muslim jihadis, in a supposed plan to fight ISIS, as we read from Reuters:
A Western-backed opposition force of around 12,000 to 15,000 will be needed to retake areas of eastern Syria controlled by Islamic State militants, the top U.S military officer said on Friday, as the Pentagon outlined the first steps in a U.S.-led training program that could run several years.
The Pentagon said its assessment teams have already arrived in Saudi Arabia to help map out a U.S.-led program there expected to train more than 5,000 Western-backed opposition fighters in the first year.
The hope is that a well-organized and equipped moderate opposition force can take advantage of U.S.-led air strikes against Sunni fundamentalist fighters from the Islamic State who have taken huge swathes of Syria.
General Martin Dempsey, chairman of the U.S. military’s Joint Chiefs of Staff, cautioned that 5,000 was only a start of a long process toward defeating the group.
“Five thousand has never been the end state … Twelve to 15,000 is what we believe they would need to recapture lost territory in eastern Syria,” Dempsey told a Pentagon news conference.
America is going to train these Muslims, and they are only going to later use the training against, just as the Muslims who the Bush administration trained are now the commanders of ISIS, with American training.
