Congress needs to sanction money to train Syrian rebels against ISIS

The fight against the Islamic States is about go on the next level in the middle east. The United States military is planning to give the jihadist group taste of their own medicine. The training camps are full of Syrian rebels eager to fight ISIS.  More than 100 moderate rebels from Syria are gearing up for the fight under the US military training. The military plans to train additional 5400 fighters by the end of this year. Training rebels is a big advantage for the military as they know the terrain and local language better. Many military experts are worried about feasibility of creating such large number fighters in less time. 

Many critics argue that the quality of such fighters won’t be good enough to make a difference. The military has reacted by saying at least 3,000 top class fighters would deployed by the end of year. This lower estimation by the officials also points out at the depressed state of the war against the ISIS. The military has conducted systematic air strikes on the ISIS targets but it has been least helpful to collapse the central leadership of the extremist group. Congress would be requested soon to sanction more $500 million by the Obama administration to establish proper three-year training and arming program.

The first batch rebels started train in May. The US government wants to be at safe distance in the Middle East. The prime strategic goal is to create strong Iraqi Army. Such strong ground force would keep check on ISIS without any necessity of the US involvement.
