Marines join the fight for Raqqa?

Washington Post:
Marines have arrived in Syria in the fight for Raqqa

The deployment comes as the senior U.S. officials consider ways to accelerate the campaign against the Islamic State.
That should be bad news for ISIS and al-Baghdadi if he managed to escape from Mosul.   The Marines will be joining a complicated fight for Raqqa that could involve factions within the coalition fighting each other if Turkey tries to attack the Kurds.
