The President says these advisors will assist in training and advising Iraqi forces as the country deals with the Islamic militants marching toward Baghdad.

 

Middle East Author David Rubin says we have to be very careful to not get dragged into a civil war.

 

"It is very important the U.S. learns from its past mistakes.  We should not get invovled in Sunni Shiite battles.  We should just give support to the Kurds. They are the only group that supports the west.  They control the area where most of the oil fields are and they need to be supported."

 

The President says the U.S. is taking steps to be prepared for targeted military action if and when the situation on the ground requires it.

 

Earlier in the week, the President deployed 275 military personnel to provide support and security for the embassy in Baghdad.
