Biden Finally Mans-Up and Strikes at Iranian Terror Forces Attacking Americans

Written By Wyatt Claypool, Posted on February 26, 2021

Although yesterday Twitter was ablaze with cries of “endless-wars” and “warmonger” being directed at President Joe Biden for ordering strikes on Iranian-backed terrorist organizations in Syria.

Yes, it would foolish if without cause and with no national security goals in mind Biden just struck at Iranian proxy forces out of nowhere, but that is absolutely not what happened.

Over the previous week, the same Iranian-backed organizations were testing the Biden administration by launching three separate rocket attacks on American bases in Iraq which resulted in the death of an American contractor

It is ridiculous to contend that Biden should not have retaliated against the perpetrating organizations like Kata’ib Hezbollah and Kata’ib Sayyid al Shuhada. Iran is trying to perpetuate its power throughout the region with its proxy organizations by destabilizing countries like Iraq and Yemen, and by responding to Iranian aggression America is restraining its toxic power.

Members of an Iranian-backed terrorist organization,

President Donald Trump created unprecedented peace deals in the Middle East in large part because he was so hard on Iran and its proxy organizations, going as far as to perform an airstrike on the terrorist Quds Force leader Qasem Soleimani. 

Trump by showing strength in the face of Iranian threats undermined the fear that Iran had wielded over the region, causing many Arab nations like the UAE to be able to sign long-overdue peace treaties with Israel, no longer fearing a violent response from Iran.


In the Middle East strength is strength and weakness is weakness, and Trump knew to get anything done he had to make sure America positioned itself as the strongest power in the region not shy about proving it.

What Biden actually did wrong with his airstrikes against the Iranian terror proxies was discussed by TNT contributor Daniel Bordman on the online foreign policy show Superpowered Broadcasting, where he noted that the fact Biden waited an entire week and tolerated three attacks before responding could cause future problems.

Bordman said:

What [Iran] has learned right now is after three attacks, that’s when a response comes. At some point in the near future they will try ‘what happens after two?’ ‘What happens after one?’…Yes [Biden ordering airstrikes] is a good thing, yes it will stop further American deaths…[but] he is still doing the kind of the bidding of the Islamic Republic, [and] there is a 99 percent chance we will get at least 90 percent of the Iran Deal returned to. 

The Iranians now know that they potentially have much more leeway with Biden than they had with Trump, so more violence may be coming soon as the Iranians do not fear a disproportionate response from Biden the way Trump strategically utilized in the past to make sure the Islamists knew that he was in charge. 


All the progressives and anti-intervention activists on Twitter complaining about Biden’s “bombing in Syria” to make it seem like Biden was carpet-bombing the whole country and not just approving targeting airstrikes on terrorist forces are pushing talking-points that benefit Iran. 

It wasn’t exactly a shock when certain media figures like Kyle Kulinski, Cassandra Fairbanks, Jimmy Dore were criticizing Biden as they have track records with being anti-American on all foreign policy issues, but it’s disconcerting that so many people see them as authorities on these issues. 

The theocratic regime in Iran would like nothing better than for Americans and other Westerners to demonize the response to terrorist attacks as being part of a “pro-war” agenda rather than just common sense.

Iran is a terror-sponsoring state looking to expand its regional power and borders, one cannot simply pull out of the region and assume that the problems won’t eventually spill over into the West’s backyard.
