The Biden administration is supposedly pissed off that Israel didn’t inform them of the strike in Damascus that killed an Iranian General. Do you know why Israel didn’t inform anyone? Because Biden is a Neville Chamberlain kind of milquetoast jellyfish. He called Netanyahu and asked him not to retaliate for the over 300 missiles that were fired at his country overnight because, “they didn’t hit anything of value.”

Except there were casualties, including a 7 year old girl who was struck by shrapnel. I’m sure someone thought that their 7 year old daughter was of value. The only reason that there were few casualties was that the Israeli systems were able to intercept 99% of the missiles before they hit anything.

Look, I am against the US getting militarily involved in foreign wars, and that includes both Ukraine and Israel. With that being said, how hard would it be to make a call telling Netanyahu, “The American people are both saddened and shocked at Iran’s attempted attacks on your civilian populations. We will not stand in opposition to any action that your nation chooses to take in response to this ghastly attack.” Instead, Biden proved that his statement of supporting Israel was bullshit.

Otherwise, you embolden those dictators who would attack others.

He is deliberately ignoring that it was his sponsoring of terrorists, to the point that his own generals were planning and supporting the attacks on Israeli citizens, that prompted the Israeli drone strike that got his panties in a bunch.

Just because Democrats have been kissing Iran ass since the 1970’s doesn’t mean that Israel has to.

Do you know why the US quit telling Pakistan they had found Bin Laden? =)

So that is why this feels so familiar.

I agree US policy should be hand’s-off in regards to the inevitable Israeli escalations.

Also, hand’s-off in regards to the Israeli kinetic operations in Gaza.

And hand’s-off in the waters off Yemen and the Persian Gulf and the Med and Baltic and Black Seas.

Also in foreign countries that did not request our presence and have asked us to leave like Syria and Iraq.

In fact, let’s leave that entire hemisphere alone, as well as the rest of the southern hemisphere. Somewhere less than a quarter of the globe should be more than enough to handle.

Or maybe I’m just jaded by playing policeman in the Balkans and paying for all these other countries to stay afraid and in-line while the infrastructure, demographics and future turn to shit here.

Everyone seems to assume Iran wouldn’t do at least some form of face saving retaliation after Israel bombed a diplomatic compound. If we’re lucky common sense will prevail and everyone will call it a face saving win.
If not….

Brandon’s handlers are too clueless to learn from Bibi not showing up for a Monday confab a few weeks back?
Jimmeh Carta!
That was an awful time when parents got divorced and we couldn’t even afford name brand shoes, even had to go on foodstamps for a couple of months as Pappy left.
It only gets worse times seven under Brandon and is the Misery Index back?

Can you imagine what life would be like without Israel? One billion+ muslims with only the West as their target. The hate for the West goes back to the beginning of the oil industries there and will continue until it’s all gone. And then there’s the thirteenth imam.
The societal mindset is determined by the oil wealth. Those nations must have an outlet for their mostly idle young men. Israel is ideal. We would work do if need be. But those hundreds of millions of young muslim men must be dealt with.
All of those wars and random bombings and attacks would still happen, but we’d be the targets. Those jews are worth their weight in gold. To not fully fund them would be Treasonous. Boom! Take that!
