Biden launches shocking military assault on this foreign nation

Calls for war have circled around for months. But now Biden is finally acting on it.

And Biden launched a shocking military assault on this foreign nation.

Remember years ago when the Middle East was in relative peace thanks to Donald Trump?

Remember when Islamic nations and the Jewish State of Israel finally started to talk to each other rather than lobbing bombs?

Well, those days are gone.

One of Joe Biden’s first acts as president was to hand over Afghanistan to the Taliban, so why should he or Democrats be surprised when Hamas and Iranian terrorists threaten American assets and personnel?

Now we’re under attack, and Biden is finally deciding to respond.

On Wednesday morning local time, the US launched airstrikes against two facilities in Iraq utilized by Iran and Iranian-backed proxies.

This is the fourth time the US military has carried out targeted strikes against Iranian-linked targets in Iraq and Syria, where US troops have been attacked by proxies of Tehran more than 60 times in the last month.

“On the morning of November 22 in Iraq, U.S. Central Command (USCENTCOM) forces conducted discrete, precision strikes against two facilities in Iraq,” according to a statement from the US Central Command.

“The strikes were in direct response to the attacks against U.S. and Coalition forces by Iran and Iran-backed groups, including the one in Iraq on November 21, which involved use of close-range ballistic missiles.”

These strikes were carried out in reaction to a recent attack in which proxy forces launched a close-range ballistic missile at the Al-Asad Air Base, injuring eight people, according to a statement issued by CENTCOM at the time.

Immediately following the incident, a U.S. AC-130 gunship opened fire on a vehicle transporting militia members, killing “several.”

The gunship opened fire on the vehicle after determining who was responsible for launching the close-range ballistic missiles.

“The militants were targeted because the AC-130 was able to determine the point of origin from where the close-range ballistic missile was being fired upon — or fired to the base,” said Pentagon deputy press secretary Sabrina Singh.

“So they were able to take action cause they saw the militants, they were able to keep an eye on the movement of these militants as they moved into their vehicles, and that’s why they were able to respond.”

US forces in Iraq and Syria, who are there to prevent the resurgence of ISIS, have been increasingly targeted by these proxies in the last month.

Since Oct. 17, there have been approximately 66 attacks against troops by Iranian-backed proxies, resulting in more than 60 U.S. troops reporting injuries, at least 25 of whom had traumatic brain injuries, though this number does not include the injuries sustained in the ballistic missile attack.

So are sporadic airstrikes enough of a response? Or is it too little too late?
