I have no idea where you're getting your information but that isn't true.

Reuters, the government is in the process of working out, what to do with prisoners as UN conventions doesn't allow to releasing them into the custody of countries, who have the death penalty.

This doesn't say anything that you said. 

 

 

On another note, the protests that have been going on during the ceasefire look exactly like 2011.

The Danish minister has stated that their will be operational ground forces incl seals, special operations etc.

It's a monumental shitty idea going into that conflict, but the politicians will do anything the US wants.

When? They were grounded for the first part of the Syrian offensive due to them not having the political mandate. The Danish military was per capita one of the most active in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and the Balkans.

Is NATO force in Denmark professional soldiers? You must have draft in Denmark, most Scandinavian countries do. So my question is , who are they going to send there, 18 year old boys?

They're not sending anyone because it's made up nonsense.

The foreign ministry says something else, but I'm sure you know better.

Yes. I do know better. If you think a NATO country is going to send non-clandestine ground troops to Syria you are out of your mind.

Who said anything about that, I said they are going to have foot soldiers on the ground, they are not going to walk around Homs with blue helmets on.

Turkey is reason # 18,419 why mutual defense treaties are insane. U.S. Out of NATO now.

Erdogan being batshit is nothing new and has been public knowledge for a long time. What makes it worse is that Merkel is trying to get them into the EU and is sending the A LOT of money, as his antics are getting worse, which is essentially green lighting it.
