Iranian Proxies Attacks Against US Troops: The Consequences of Weakness

Biden's weakness is to blame.

Iranian proxies launched at least 76 attacks against US Military bases in Iraq and Syria since October 7. It’s just one aspect of the problem of weakness in the White House. There has been no meaningful response to these attacks. A couple of warehouses blown up is not enough.

UPDATE: the number of attacks is now 92.

Attacks by Iranian-backed terrorists against U.S. forces in the Middle East increased late this week as U.S. officials have grown frustrated by President Joe Biden’s lack of a forceful response to deter future attacks.

Approximately a dozen attacks have been launched against U.S. forces in Iraq and Syria over a roughly 48-hour span, according to Fox News correspondent Jennifer Griffin…

Numerous U.S. defense officials told POLITICO that Biden’s approach to dealing with the situation was problematic because by trying to avoid escalation, the opposite is happening.

“Near to immediate term, where are the strikes on [Houthi] targets?” said Marc Polymeropoulos, former CIA official, on social media. “Need to see this ASAP.”

“We’re not deterring anybody right now,” Miller said.”  Ryan Saavedra at the Daily Wire

From Iraq and Syria, Iranian proxies have attacked US bases at least 76 times since October 7. According to the Pentagon there have been around 66 servicemembers injured, and one death of an American contractor in those incidents. What has Biden done? Nothing. He ordered a couple of proxy warehouses bombed, but no one was injured in those bombings.  SecDef Austin sent two aircraft carriers and 2,000 US Marines in a “show of force” that has so far been no deterrent whatsoever. Deterrence comes from strength and the US is not exhibiting it.

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

This map from Fox News was published on November 7. Since then, 36 more attacks have occurred. Including in Baghdad’s Green Zone.

It is widely known that these Iranian proxies are closely tied to Tehran. The current occupant of the White House has been systematically giving terrorists funds to keep it up. They do not give money to their people; they use it to create more terror. They truly do not care about “humanitarian” issues.

Here’s an example from a video of Hamas stealing humanitarian aid:

It’s not just Hamas, the Ayatollahs in Tehran make absolutely sure that their funding of terrorism is above the needs of their own people. Such is the pattern of all terrorists and dictatorships across the globe. They get theirs and the rest get nothing.

All Israel News refers to Biden’s policies as “schizophrenic.”

Through their proxies in Gaza, Lebanon, Yemen, Iraq, and Syria, the mullahs are literally getting away with murder. Israelis are being murdered. And American military personnel in the region are being wounded over and over and over again. Why does Biden let it happen? All Israel News 

The only thing that these Iranian proxies understand is force. One well-placed MOAB (Mother Of All Bombs) would help them understand, but the Biden administration continues to try and soft-pedal evil rather than confront it.  Pray for our troops.
