US sends more troops to Iraq after ISIS rocket kills Marine Staff Sgt. Louis F.Cardin

I don’t sense any kind of urgency on the part of the Obama regime to take out ISIS. 
Obama really doesn’t care and rather leave it to the next president to clean up his mess.
Fox News reports more U.S. military troops are going to Iraq in the aftermath of an Islamic State rocket killing a Marine and seriously injuring others this weekend, the Pentagon said SuThe attack occurred Saturday in the northern Iraq town of Makhmur, roughly 75 miles southeast of the ISIS-stronghold Mosul.

The undisclosed number of troops will be a detachment from the 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit and will support Iraqi forces and international ground operations, according to the Pentagon, which issued the announcement for the U.S.-led Joint Task Force – Operation Inherent Resolve.

The Pentagon on Sunday identified the Marine who died as Staff Sgt. Louis F.Cardin, of Temecula, Calif. Cardin was assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 6th Marine Regiment, 26th MEU out of Camp Lejeune, N.C.

President Obama has pledged numerous times there would be no "boots on the ground" in the fight against the Islamic State, the terror group also known as ISIS.
