BIDEN BOMBS, That Didn’t Take Long Did It?

Getting rid of Trump was what any sane American, or citizen of the

world wanted. He was a disaster for the US both home and abroad.

Only the most brain-washed of his supporters

would beg to differ. So once Trump sulked off into the Florida

distance aboard Marine-One, it felt like the new Biden presidency

could only be nothing but good. It had to be, just had to be, right?

Sadly, no.

The American presidency comes with a lot of things, including

tradition. Whether delivering the State of the Union address or

forgiving a Thanksgiving turkey, some things never change. And

never was that truer than the Presidential pastime of bombing the

Middle East. A mere five weeks into his term, and Biden has

unleashed American firepower on Iranian backed targets in Syria.

American security is, of course, important. So too is its strategic

interests around the world. But hitting Iranian backed militia in

Syria? Again? Syria has been torn apart by a Byzantine civil war

that has been raging on for nearly a decade now. The country is a

ruin and at the mercy of any number of state and regional actors.

The last thing it needed was another dose of Uncle Sam’s remote

explosive “justice.” And come to that, the American people don’t

need to be associated with that either.
