    More National Guardsmen Sent To Ferguson Than U.S. Soldiers To Iraq

    Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon (D) said today that he was going to send more than 2,200 National Guardsmen to Ferguson, Mo., after last night's protests and violence.
    "No one should have to live like this," Gov. Nixon said at a press conference, noted the Business Insider.
    "No one deserves this," added Gov. Nixon. "We must do better and we will. This morning and into this afternoon, I met with Guard and law enforcement leaders. All agreed that the violence we saw in the area of Ferguson last night cannot be repeated."
    Gov. Nixon sent 700 National Guardsmen into Ferguson before the grand jury announcement that Officer Darren Wilson would not be indicted for killing Michael Brown.

    The 2,200+ extra National Guardsmen tops the 1,500 U.S. troops that President Obama sent to Iraq earlier this month.

    According to Fox News, President Obama said that the U.S. troops "will not be in combat," but training and advising the Iraqi army, which President Bush spent billions to train.

    When ISIS first invaded Iraq, members of the Iraqi army threw down their weapons and ran or joined ISIS.
    Back in Ferguson, former Philadelphia police captain Ray Lewis told AJ+ Media why he supports the residents over the police.
