WASHINGTON - Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz said on Thursday the United Sates should listen to military experts about what troops are necessary to combat the Islamic State militant group rather than viewing boots on the ground as a display of strength.

"We need to rely on the expert military judgment as to the tools necessary to carry out that objective... including using whatever ground troops are necessary," said Cruz, a U.S. senator from Texas.
