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?
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.
