No EXCUSE For Joe Biden’s Attack

Joe Biden is ready for WAR!

Former President Donald Trump was all about peace during his presidency. Joe Biden destroyed it for good. Biden approved a “precision” airstrike that killed about 22 pro-Iranian militants. The situation in Syria and Iran doesn’t look good at all.

The BBC News was the first to release the updated casualty estimate.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a UK-based monitoring group, said the US attack had killed at least 22 fighters from the Popular Mobilisation Forces, an Iraqi umbrella group of mostly Shia paramilitaries that includes Kataib Hezbollah.

The New York Times sort of justified the reprisal. According to their report, a US military service member was killed. Guess what… This information was incorrect. The NY Times provided an update late Thursday night.

Correction: U.S. airstrikes on Iranian-backed militias were over an attack that killed a contractor and injured, not killed, a U.S. service member.

Biden’s airstrikes attacked three transport vehicles loaded with munition. The information was confirmed by a SOHR spokesperson. The Pentagon explains the attack is a reprisal for a militia attack. A Filipino civilian contractor lost the life and several others were injured, including a Louisiana National Guard soldier and four American contractors.

” A rocket attack on the airport in the northern Iraqi city of Erbil… killed a civilian contractor with the American-led military coalition and wounded six others, including a U.S. service member, according to a coalition spokesman,” the Times reported.

The Pentagon went on explaining that the attack was a “proportionate” one.

The rocket attack “specifically destroyed multiple facilities located at a border control point used by a number of Iranian-backed militia troops, including Kataib Hezbollah and Kataib Sayyid al-Shuhada,” Pentagon spokesperson John Kirby said.

“This proportionate military response was conducted together with diplomatic measures, including consultation with coalition partners,” he added. “The operation sends an unambiguous message: President Biden will act to protect American and coalition personnel.”

Iran and the US engaged in a military exchange. Trump ordered the assassination of Qassim Soleimani in early 2020. He was killed for attacking and killing American troops.

“We took action last night to stop a war. We did not take action to start a war,” Trump said in a statement.

“General Soleimani and his Quds Force were responsible for the deaths of hundreds of American and coalition service members and the wounding of thousands more,” the Pentagon said. “He had orchestrated attacks on coalition bases in Iraq over the last several months — including the attack on December 27th — culminating in the death and wounding of additional American and Iraqi personnel. General Soleimani also approved the attacks on the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad [in late December 2019].”

The Iranians picked their side.

“Iran has made clear that it intends to retaliate further for the American drone strike in Baghdad in January 2020 that killed a top Iranian general, Qassim Suleimani, and a senior Iraqi security official,” the Times earlier reported. “Days after that strike, the Iranian government launched missile attacks against U.S. forces at the Ain al Assad air base in Iraq’s Anbar Province, wounding more than 100 troops.”

Syria is in the middle of a civil war after years of infighting. Bashar al-Assad prevails over his internal enemies. Rand Paul condemned Biden’s attack.

“[President Biden] dragging the US into Syria’s civil war is a huge mistake,” he tweeted. “I strongly condemn this foolish military adventurism.”

“I condemn meddling in Syria’s civil war. I also condemn attacking a sovereign nation without authority. What authority does [President Biden] have to strike Syria? Perhaps someone should ask his [Press Secretary] today?” he added.

Fox News host Tucker Carson shared his thoughts, too.

“The defense industry, permanent D.C., now have their man back in the White House,” Carlson said. “That didn’t take long. For four years they longed, more than maybe anything, for more pointless conflict in the Middle East. And just 36 days in, now they have it.”
