US jets hit Iran’s terrorist bases in Syria on Sunday night. Just one problem, the Biden administration timed the strike so they wouldn’t hit terrorists, only support facilities. Biden did this so Iran would not get upset. Once again, the American president caved to our enemies.
A Biden administration defense official said he does not expect “a lot of casualties” from the Iranian-backed forces because of the time of the strike. Yes, you read that right. Our F-15s and F-16s were sent on a combat mission not to hurt anyone in substantial numbers, even after these specific forces had been launching attacks at US forces in Iraq.
Biden wants to give Iran everything it wants in nuclear talks so the Iranians will eventually have the nuclear weapons to destroy Israel. The Israel-hating antisemites in his administration have made that de facto US policy. So Biden will roll over backwards to cuddle up to the Iranians, while making this toothless gesture sound like a strong American response to aggression.
BREAKING: The U.S. military has conducted airstrikes against what it said were “facilities used by Iran-backed militia groups” near the Iraq-Syria border. The Pentagon said the militias used the facilities to launch drone attacks on U.S. troops in Iraq. https://t.co/Z9E18S6RCq

FNC: According to Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby, the facilities are used by several Iran-backed militia groups engaged in unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) attacks against U.S. personnel and facilities in Iraq, including Kata’ib Hezbollah (KH) and Kata’ib Sayyid al-Shuhada (KSS).”
“At President Biden’s direction, U.S. military forces earlier this evening conducted defensive precision airstrikes against facilities used by Iran-backed militia groups in the Iraq-Syria border region. As demonstrated by this evening’s strikes, President Biden has been clear that he will act to protect U.S. personnel. Given the ongoing series of attacks by Iran-backed groups targeting U.S. interests in Iraq, the President directed further military action to disrupt and deter such attacks,” Kirby added. “The United States took necessary, appropriate, and deliberate action designed to limit the risk of escalation – but also to send a clear and unambiguous deterrent message…”The strikes were both necessary to address the threat and appropriately limited in scope…As a matter of domestic law, the President took this action pursuant to his Article II authority to protect U.S. personnel in Iraq.” So they admit these Iranian forces had hit US troops. Yet Biden decides not to target those same terrorist forces in the strike. He’s doing exactly what Iran wants him to do.
