Biden Drops Bombs On Syria After Just A Month In Office

Donald Trump got through four years as president without involving the U.S. in any new conflicts. Joe Biden lasted a month.

On Thursday night, Biden ordered an airstrike that dropped bombs on Syria.

It’s going to be interesting to see how Democrats and the media justify this.

Reuters reports:

U.S. conducts air strikes against Iranian-backed militia facilities in Syria – Pentagon

President Joe Biden on Thursday directed U.S. military air strikes in eastern Syria against facilities belonging to what the Pentagon said were Iran-backed militia, in a calibrated response to rocket attacks against U.S. targets in Iraq.

The strikes, which were first reported by Reuters, appeared to be limited in scope, potentially lowering the risk of escalation.

Biden’s decision to strike only in Syria and not in Iraq, at least for now, also gives the Iraqi government some breathing room as it carries out its own investigation of a Feb. 15 attack that wounded Americans.

“At President (Joe) Biden’s direction, U.S. military forces earlier this evening conducted airstrikes against infrastructure utilized by Iranian-backed militant groups in eastern Syria,” Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said in a statement.

“President Biden will act to protect American and Coalition personnel. At the same time, we have acted in a deliberate manner that aims to de-escalate the overall situation in both eastern Syria and Iraq,” Kirby said.

People reacted on Twitter:

You own this, Democrats. Enjoy.
