First Military Strike of this Administration

Biden moves fast. Only a month in office.

 

WASHINGTON — The United States launched airstrikes in Syria on Thursday, targeting facilities used by Iranian-backed militia groups. The Pentagon said the strikes were in retaliation for a rocket attack in Iraq earlier this month that killed one civilian contractor and wounded a U.S. service member and other coalition troops.

The airstrike was the first known military action undertaken by the Biden administration, which in its first weeks has emphasized its intent to put more focus on the challenges posed by China, even as Mideast threats persist.

“This proportionate military response was conducted together with diplomatic measures , including consultation with coalition partners,” the Pentagon’s chief spokesman, John Kirby, said in announcing the strikes.


Everybody ought to know by now this potential tit for tat nonsense gets us nowhere good. It is a reminder that we will continue messing around in the region indefinitely.

How is this justified? Partisans the likes of Mriana lausten writeu silent.

Trump was quicker.

With the exception of self-defense, war, terrorism, violence is never justified. I do not know the details on the airstrikes and will have to look into it, but we’ve been having a lot of issues with the Middle East for many years though. That said, I didn’t agree with it when President Obama did it. I also didn’t agree with killing anyone, but that said, I wish they would have somehow shown us the body of Osama Bin Laden, instead of saying “He’s dead. Our military killed him.” I question his death because I never saw a body. If that’s partisans then loyalty to a party doesn’t take much.

I wish they would have somehow shown us the body of Osama Bin Laden,
Have they ever shown us the body of a prominent kill?

The righties would have said Obama was gruesome for parading around a dead body.

 

 

I really don’t care what the righties have to say, especially when they are extremely violent and their acts of violence are shown on TV. Case in point, the attack on the Capital, which was also violent, bloody, murderous and gruesome. They have no room to say a word, especially when it’s just a body of a prominent enemy.

Well, yeah. That was back when political propriety was a thing. Over the past 4 years, any sense of propriety has gone down the shitter.

@mrmhead I was talking about Jan 6, 2021 when the Repugs attempted a Coup with their Base, their Al qaeda. That was not 4 years ago.

? Pretty much.

Trump was quicker.
How so?
How is this justified?
The people who approve of it don't need justification. It's not like this hasn't been going on for decades.

I’m sorry. I don’t get your meme, because BLM, Women’s rights, and gay rights have nothing to do with President Biden’s military strike. Despite all three issues being human rights they are separate issues from a military strike.

Human rights and bombs go so well together. No conflict there. They must be woke bombs

@missinggirl That is beyond ridiculous and insane. All I have to say is this:

MEET THE NEW BOSS. SAME AS THE OLD BOSS.

President Biden and the dotard are NOT the same. That is total BS, because the dotard destroyed everything, nearly making the U.S. a shit hole, as he called other countries he didn’t like and he didn’t help U.S. citizens. President Biden is trying clean up the dotard’s mess, as well as help the U.S. citizen by giving COVID relief and vaccines in an effort to curb COVID, which the dotard wanted everyone to get and hopefully die, especially if they were poor and/or of colour. We wouldn’t be in this mess if not for the dotard. Not only that, President Biden is attempting to make the economy better and curb Climate Change, another thing the dotard made worse. President Biden wants to move towards modernization, which means going to wind and solar power and away from coal and oil, something the dotard refused to do, because he loved his rich white men, especially if they scratched his back. President Biden isn’t in bed with Putin either, unlike the dotard. President Biden wears a mask and encourages mask wearing, even mandated it in government buildings, unlike the stupid dotard. President Biden has half a brain, the dotard doesn’t. There are several other vast differences, but that’s for starters.

I also need to add that President Biden is not racist, sexist, homophobic, etc etc, but the dotard is racist and even supports White Supremacists and probably is one himself.

But don’t forget, Uncle Joe’s bombs are much quieter and more gentle than the ones Trump didn’t drop.

How do you know the dotard didn’t drop them? After all, unlike President Biden, the dotard let Russia put a hit out on our military people.

“and wounded other coalition troops”… My first thought was, well then why didn’t the other coalitions do the bombing? Why is it the US always seems to do it? OMG that’s what Trump said. If only Trump wasn’t such an immoral embarrassing moron who, like the cons in general, is wrong about everything else. I think that’s what made it hard for liberals - in certain very limited cases, the absolute wrong person was doing the right thing.
