Stryker Brigade set to deploy to Iraq

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) -- The Fort Carson unit that carried out the capture and arrest of Iraqi Dictator Saddam Hussein 18 years ago is heading back to Iraq.

The Fourth Infantry Division First Stryker Brigade Combat Team is deploying to Iraq in support of Operation Inherent Resolve. The mission is to maintain stability in the mid-east region and monitor ISIS activity.

Nearly two weeks ago, a US airstrike happened near the Iraq and Syria border.

Fort Carson has yet to say the number of troops being sent or the exact deployment date.




  1. So were pulling troops out of Afghanistan after 20 years, but we are sending troops back to Iraq after 18+ years?
    Excerpt from Biden July 8 speech regarding American Troops in Afghanistan.
    “We did not go to Afghanistan to nation-build.”
    Are we still in Iraq to nation-build?
    Or Germany?
    Or Japan?
    Or N. Korea?
    Or Australia?
    Or Italy?
    Or Honduras?
    Or Burkina Faso?
    Or Thailand?
    Or the Philippines?
    Or Somalia?

  2. Additionally, The news keeps stating that Afghanistan is America’s longest war. Did the news forget the still active war on drugs that started June 18, 2971 and is still active?

  3. If congress cut funding for this war, which it did, how is the pentagon funding this return to Afghanistan? Hmmmm? Pulled all our troops out, the general in charge has stood down and now more going in? I fear for what will happen now that both Cuba and Haiti are demanding we get our feet stuck in THEIR problems. The world has its hands out for sugar daddy Sam to take care of them while they spit at us.

  4. Don’t forget LBJ’s “war on poverty” 1965. But ya Biden pulls out of one place, just to go back to another? ISIS and the Taliban claim to have control. Who knows?I’m sure uncle Joe will send some one out to ‘splain it to us.
