A Jordanian Military Helicopter passes over Amman, Jordan, Thursday, Oct. 11, 2012.  A contingent of U.S. forces _ and a handful of British allies _ are training Jordanian commandos at a desert facility, where according to Jordanian officials, the military planners are in the country to help them develop a blueprint to defend Jordan and its population in case of a chemical attack from neighboring Syria. An initial contingent of 150 U.S. and a handful of British planners at the King Abdullah II Special Operations Training Center northeast of the Jordanian capital is a clear message to Bashar Assad that Jordan's longtime Western allies stand ready to defend it if he tried to drag his smaller neighbor into his 18-month conflict.
