Here we go.
Iranian proxies have repeatedly attacked U.S. military bases in Syria. The United States retaliated with air strikes last night. Both sides are testing each other ahead of the war.
U.S. forces conducted airstrikes on two facilities in eastern Syria used by groups linked to Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps at President Biden’s direction, the Pentagon announced late Thursday.
The big picture: The “precision self-defense strikes” were in “response to a series of ongoing and mostly unsuccessful attacks against U.S. personnel in Iraq and Syria” by Iran-backed groups that began on Oct. 17, per a Pentagon statement. A U.S. defense official told reporters late Thursday Iran was responsible for the attacks against American bases in Syria. …
The Pentagon is straight up lying.
These narrowly tailored strikes in self-defense were intended solely to protect and defend U.S. personnel in Iraq and Syria. They are separate and distinct from the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas, and do not constitute a shift in our approach to the Israel-Hamas conflict. We continue to urge all state and non-state entities not to take action that would escalate into a broader regional conflict.
1. The attacks on U.S. military bases are in response to our unwavering support for the actions of OUR GREATEST ALLY in Gaza.
2. The air strikes on IRGC related targets are supposed to be a form of deterrence … you know, just like sending two aircraft carriers into the eastern Mediterranean, assembling an enormous NATO fleet in the region, sending 900 troops to American bases in the region, passing a resolution in the House that reaffirms our military alliance with Israel, delaying the ground invasion of Gaza so that we can ship equipment over to deal with the inevitable missile attacks when the war begins.
Israel is going to invade Gaza.
When Israel launches the ground invasion, Hezbollah is going to attack Israel from Lebanon.
When Hezbollah attacks Israel, the American fleet in the eastern Mediterranean is going to attack Hezbollah.
We are going to plunge into a hot war with Iran. Everyone in Washington knows it and is resigned to it and it is 100% attributable to mindlessly “Standing With Israel” because AIPAC owns Congress.
Note: Unlike previous American wars like Iraq, Syria and Ukraine, the difference here is the Biden administration clearly does not want this war. No one else in the region and especially the Saudis want this war either. This war is being forced on us because of Israel.
