(IraqiNews.com) On Sunday, the Democratic Party representative in the Foreign Affairs Committee of the American Congress, Eliot Engel said “Ultimately, we may have some boots on the ground there. That’s not something I want,” but we cannot “put our head in the sand and pretend the threat [of ISIL] does not exist.”

Engel said, in the television show  program “Fox News Sunday”, followed by IraqiNews.com, that “the United States is in a war against the militant group of ISIL; we may be forced to participate in a ground operation,” noting that “in the end, the United States may already be in the process of military operation there.”

Engel expressed his support to “the Syrian opposition who [America] should have helped arm years ago, appealed to the international community for air strikes on position of the militant in Syria,” adding “there is no need to consider this possibility because it is one war.”
