One Month Into Presidency Biden BOMBS Syria

Back to the war machine

It took just over one month of a Joe Biden presidency for the US to turn back on the war machine and start raining missiles on Syria again.

Reuters reports that Biden ordered military air strikes in eastern Syria against facilities claimed to be used by Iran-backed militia.

The US reportedly dropped seven 500-pound JDAMs during the airstrike in Al Bukamal, reportedly killed 17 Iran-backed fighters.

The Pentagon says that the strikes were a response to ‘rocket attacks’ on February 15th against US ‘targets’ in Iraq.

Iranian militias have denied that they were involved in attacks against US facilities or troops.

“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,” a Pentagon statement noted.

“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,” said spokesman John Kirby.

Dropping bombs apparently constitutes ‘de-escalation’ now.

Some called out the hypocrisy, referencing comments from Democrats after Trump allowed a strike to be carried out in Syria almost four years ago:

Then there was also this…

Establishment Republicans are on board with the action, with Representative Michael McCaul, of House Foreign Affairs Committee commenting “Responses like this are a necessary deterrent and remind Iran, its proxies, and our adversaries around the world that attacks on U.S. interests will not be tolerated.”

The action comes after Biden ordered troops to reenter Syria, reversing President Trump’s efforts to wind down the US war machine in the Middle East.

As we previously warned, Biden’s foreign policy team vehemently supported every single disastrous military intervention over the past 2 decades:

The military-industrial complex is back.

Head Of Strategic Command Says U.S. Nuke War With China, Russia a “Real Possibility”

Unless U.S. beefs up its nuclear arsenal.

The US Strategic Command (STRATCOM) warns that a nuclear war with Russia and China is a “real possibility” unless the U.S. beefs up its nuclear arsenal.

“There is a real possibility that a regional crisis with Russia or China could escalate quickly to a conflict involving nuclear weapons, if they perceived a conventional loss would threaten the regime or state,” Vice Adm. Charles Richard wrote in the February edition of the US Naval Institute’s monthly magazine.

In response, the U.S. Military must “shift its principal assumption from ‘nuclear employment is not possible’ to ‘nuclear employment is a very real possibility,’ and act to meet and deter that reality,” according to Richard.

The STRATCOM chief also asserted that Russia and China “have begun to aggressively challenge international norms and global peace using instruments of power and threats of force in ways not seen since the height of the Cold War.”

Despite the fact that Beijing only has around 320 nuclear warheads compared to the United States’ 6,000, Richard said America would need to modernize its stockpile.

“Even if Beijing doubles its arsenal over the next decade, as the China hawks are predicting, it will still be small compared to Washington’s,” writes Dave DeCamp. “The US would have to eliminate a good amount of its arsenal to convince Beijing to participate in arms control agreements.”

The warning was given as the USS ‘John S. McCain’ was sent for the first time by the Biden administration into the South China Sea near Chinese-controlled islands.

The US Navy said the warship was asserting “navigational rights and freedoms in the vicinity of the Parcel Islands, consistent with international law.”

As we previously highlighted, former Australian Army Major-General and current Senator Jim Molan also sounded the alarm bell on tensions between the United States and China.

“In 1991, the US Navy was 600 warships strong. Now it’s less than 300,” he pointed out, adding, “We are likely in the next three to five years or in the next five to ten years to be involved in a war between China and the United States.”

Last year, Henry Kissinger also cautioned that a catastrophic conflict between America and China that will be “worse than world wars” is inevitable unless the two sides sort out their differences.

Trump’s Afghanistan Troop Withdrawl Scrapped

President Trump’s plans to completely withdraw all US troops from Afghanistan this year now appear to have been scrapped according to NATO and Pentagon sources.

Speaking to Reuters, an anonymous NATO official said “There will be no full withdrawal by allies by April-end.”

The move was also confirmed by three other NATO officials.

The source suggested that “conditions have not been met” for a full withdrawal, and that the Biden administration will likely not seek to withdraw remaining US troops.

“With the new US administration, there will be tweaks in the policy, the sense of hasty withdrawal which was prevalent will be addressed and we could see a much more calculated exit strategy,” the source noted.

Trump had been determined to bring all US troops home from Afghanistan, and signed a deal last year with the Taliban to draw down troops, leaving no US presence by the end of April this year.

Trump managed to get the Pentagon to reduce troops numbers to 2500 in the war torn region, but now it appears that more troops will not be brought back to the US.

Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby said last week that the Taliban have not met “their commitments to renounce terrorism and to stop the violent attacks against the Afghan National Security Forces,” and because of this, “it’s very hard to see a specific way forward for the negotiated settlement.”

Biden’s administration is ‘reviewing’ the situation, but is likely to reneg on Trump’s deal, according to reports.

Democrats have called Trump’s drawdowns “hasty and reckless”, claiming that troops are needed in Afghanistan for ‘leverage’ in hostage negotiations and to ensure Afghan security forces are well trained in counter terrorism.
