seems very complicated and difficult as you have to trust the host country's military in a combined patrol like this one
It is BS when a president has to address and micro-manage and report on every squad sized action in an active combat zone (where US troops were deployed by the previous administration).

This is not a new conflict area. US troops work in combat areas...US troops get shot at. Even in low threat areas US troops will get hit eventually. It is definitely worthy our notice but why does it rise to the level of requiring presidential response of high level press briefings (which seems to be the way this is heading).
