Some 400 U.S. - Dutch NATO troops deployed on Turkey's Syrian border to operate Patriot missile

U.S. and Dutch NATO troops were massed on Turkey's Syrian border Friday, December 7, 2012, amid fears besieged President Bashar Assad was poised to use chemical weapons. The soldiers were beefing up Turkey's border and readying Patriot missiles three days after NATO agreed to deploy the MIM-104 Patriot surface-to-air missile system in Turkey.
