Between the overwhelming violence in major U.S. cities this summer and Biden’s order to bomb Syria this week, the Democrats are proving themselves to be the Party of Violence.
‘Commander-In-Chief’ Joe Biden ordered the U.S. military to carry out an airstrike in eastern Syria on Thursday. The move comes after an Iran-backed rocket attack struck an American base in Iraq.
Biden’s order was limited in scope as it did not include any drone strikes on Iraq, at least for now.
“Under the direction of President Biden, U.S. military forces earlier this evening conducted airstrikes in eastern Syria against infrastructure used predominately by an Iranian-backed militia,” a Pentagon spokesman said. The spokesman went on to identify the militias as Kata’ib Hezbollah (KH) and Kata’ib Sayyid al-Shuhada (KSS).
A U.S. official close to the Pentagon said the intention of the airstrikes in Syria were to show the United States fully plans to locate and punish dangerous militias, but will do so in a way as to not “escalate tensions.”
It has not yet been reported if any casualties resulted from Biden’s airstrikes.
The U.S. is no stranger to retaliatory airstrikes in the Middle East, specifically Syria.
The Iranian-backed rocket attacks against U.S. bases in Iraq comes after Washington and Tehran work toward finding a solution to the Nuclear Deal problem. Then-President Trump removed the U.S. from the disastrous 2015 deal. The Biden Administration has promised a return to the Obama-era deal if Iran agrees to decrease, or full halt, their nuclear proliferation programs.
It remains unclear if Biden’s order to drone bomb Syria will coax Iran back into complying with the terms of the 2015 Nuclear Deal.
