Iran is attacking US ships and assets. So “President” Biden’s diplomats have asked them to stop. They do not. So when, recently, Iranian proxy forces killed three American soldiers, Biden needed to seem to retaliate - but first let all the world and the Iranian aggressor know his plans.
The moment [US] troops were killed, Biden was suddenly under pressure to respond with more than just idle threats. And he did promise a response. And promptly broadcast the plans to Iran.
Sources within the administration leaked the details of potential moves by the administration to Politico.
It’s quite obvious that the Biden administration never wanted the element of surprise at all. Biden has simply been continuing the Obama-era policy of appeasement.
This has played out exactly as expected and exactly as Biden wanted. Iran got the notice it needed to allow Biden to appear to respond to the deaths of three U.S. troops without any meaningful consequences to Iran.
“Appeasement”? No. What Obama and Biden give Iran are encouragement and practical help, including massive sums of money. The Obama-Biden policy is to make Iran great again.
Sgt. William Jerome Rivers, Spc. Kennedy Ladon Sanders, and Spc. Breonna Alexsondria Moffett, all from Georgia, were killed in a drone strike by Iran-backed forces on January 28. Georgia Governor Brian Kemp and members of Congress were first to call the families. Parents were told they needed to fill out special paperwork to get a call from the president, whose initial statement mentioned none of the victims. When Biden finally called on January 30, he told the parents of Kennedy Sanders that “My son spent a year in Iraq; that’s how I lost him.” Actually it wasn’t.
Beau Biden served a tour in Iraq from 2008-2009 but passed away from glioblastoma in May 2015 at Walter Reed military hospital in Bethesda, Maryland. Joe Biden repeated the story many times, but it wasn’t true. Grieving parents of service members might remember Vice President Biden’s response to Maj. Nidal Hasan’s murder of 13 Americans at Fort Hood in 2009:
“Jill and I join the President and Michelle in expressing our sympathies to the families of the brave soldiers who fell today. We are all praying for those who were wounded and hoping for their full and speedy recovery. Our thoughts and prayers are also with the entire Fort Hood community as they deal with this senseless tragedy.”
Biden named not a single victim … Hasan was a self-proclaimed “soldier of Allah,” yelling “Allahu akbar” as he fired, but the vice president failed to name or condemn the shooter. For Biden, his victims only “fell” in what was only a “senseless tragedy".
For President Obama, the attack was “workplace violence”, not even gun violence. Sgt. Alonzo Lunsford, who took seven bullets from Hasan, in 2014 sought to meet with the president to explain how the wounded soldiers had been mistreated by bureaucracy. Obama declined to meet with Lunsford.
On his way out the door, Obama sent a planeload of cash to Iran, the world’s foremost sponsor of terrorism, still chanting “death to Israel, death to America". Joe Biden has duly kept the money flowing. For Obama and Biden, Americans killed by Islamic terrorists are second-class victims.
Yes, the policy is the same as it was when Obama called the Ft. Hood massacre “workplace violence”, and then shipped Iran pallets of cash - Biden funnels them billions and then warns them of retaliatory attacks after they kill our soldiers.
That’s much worse than just appeasement and “America Last” - it’s “Make Iran Great Again”, while betraying America - treason.
