  • US Marine snipers from the 2nd Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment, take cover during a gun battle with insurgents in Ramadi in Anbar province, Iraq, on Oct. 31, 2004. US President Barack Obama said Friday, Nov. 7, 2014, that he authorized the deployment of up to 1,500 more American troops to bolster Iraqi forces. For the first time since the US withdrawal in Dec. 2011, American military personnel will be on the ground in Iraq’s historically dangerous Anbar province, helping train the Iraqi military for its fight against the Islamic State group. Anbar resonates with many Americans because they recall how costly the fighting was there for US troops. More than 3,500 US soldiers died in combat in Iraq between 2003 and 2011 - and there are concerns that sending Americans back to Anbar in any capacity will inevitably make them a target.
