It recommended a senior adviser to the US President for National Security, to take a series of measures on the elimination of Daash, Among these measures, a move US troops to the front lines in Iraq.

American officials said, that "the White House appeared to be signs of dissatisfaction on the subject, while the Pentagon called for the expansion of military intervention to resolve long-standing disputes."

At the hearing of the Senate session, officials talked about the possibility of the deployment of special forces on the ground in Syria and Iraq, and to be in contact with the advisers who are in Iraq, at a time when Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter called for increased military intervention in the country as well as Syria.

US changes represented a significant escalation of the US role in Iraq and Syria, as a US official declined to be named, says that "ongoing discussions on increasing the US military role in Iraq, but he needs ultimately to US President Barack Obama's approval, which he has to make a decision on further military operations Daash against. "

He adds officials, it was not clear how many required additional military forces to implement the changes he is talking about officials who are instructed to be small.

The present US moves came after recommendations from the Office of the US President, it expresses its deep concern about the war in Iraq and Syria, which seemed stalled largely seemed to need new ideas to generate momentum against militants Daash.

It is these days writing a list of choices made by the field commanders adviser to US President regarding the increased military momentum against Daash.

It put forward a series of measures, the establishment of buffer zones and no-fly and deploy tens of thousands of ground troops to protect innocent civilians.

The Democratic Party, which nominated Hillary Clinton, former US Secretary of State for the next presidency, he would prefer to establish a no-fly zone in Syria.

Senior US officials, have warned in the meantime that these measures involve placing the United States in direct conflict with the Syrian regime and the Iranian and Russian forces which support the Assad regime.

Iraqi side, won the largest share in the hearing, as American advisers recommended the deployment of US forces at the level of brigade to regain control of the city of Ramadi, however, that militants Daash fell last summer.

And on the move, the position of the United States towards the elimination of the last Daash in Iraq, is the deployment of US troops at the front lines that can help Iraqi leaders to eliminate the organization faster, especially in the city of Ramadi.

US officials and discussed how the infrastructure and financial resources to target extremist organization, especially that it depends largely on the sale of oil and electricity in the city of Mosul and tenderness to finance military operations.

Sees Pentagon officials, said US Defense Secretary present more detailed proposals presented on the war on Daash more than his predecessor, Chuck Hagel, speaking as Ashton Carter, that the elimination of Daash lies in the use of the US military as a tool to eliminate the extremist organization.

And met with the measures proposed by the US minister, that the use of the army in the war on Daash may lead to more war on Iraq, in the last week, US forces "Delta" the implementation of a military operation was the participation of Kurdish forces to rescue hostages being held by the organization Daash in town Hawija, where a US soldier fell dead in that process, is the first victim in the fighting after the withdrawal of US troops from the country in 2011.

It is the major problems faced by Carter and Obama, is to increase the US military commitment is unlikely to result in major changes to the political situation in Iraq, or in the sense explained, the Iraqi political system may not interact with these changes after the entry of Russia to the crisis line in the war on Daash.

The reasons for the lack of interaction with the US changes in Iraq and Syria, too, is that the Shiite armed groups fighting side by side with the Iraqi supported by Iran, which also funds faction Shia is the most prominent is in Syria's security forces, and this means, that the possibility of a moderate power industry as US says United in Syria is very much out of the question, because these Shiite forces operating in Iraq and Syria, the two biggest heavyweights in the two countries, and is likely not to have a Shiite support.
