It is becoming clear that the U.S. is going to be heavily involved in the war in the Middle East, and it is becoming clear that this is going to mean a direct confrontation with Iran.
Are you ready for that? Are any of us really ready for such an apocalyptic scenario? Hamas and Hezbollah wouldn’t be anything without funding and arms from Iran. So Iran is the “big dog” that is ultimately responsible for all of the terrorism. On the other side, the U.S. is the “big dog” that funds and supports Israel. In the end, it was probably inevitable that the two “big dogs” would tangle eventually.
According to CNN, U.S. officials have intelligence that indicates that Iranian-backed terror groups “are planning to ramp up attacks against US forces in the Middle East”…
The US has intelligence that Iranian-backed militia groups are planning to ramp up attacks against US forces in the Middle East, as Iran seeks to capitalize on the backlash in the region to US support for Israel, according to multiple US officials. The militia groups have already launched multiple drone attacks on US forces in Iraq and Syria. But the US now has specific intelligence that those same groups could escalate even further as the war between Israel and Hamas continues.
Of course Iranian-backed terror groups have already been attacking U.S. forces over and over again in recent days.
In fact, U.S. troops in Iraq and Syria have been assaulted by such groups a total of 13 times within the past week…
U.S. troops positioned in the Middle East have been attacked 13 times in the last week with a mix of one-way drones and rockets, according to Pentagon officials. U.S. Department of Defense spokesman Air Force Brig. Gen. Pat Ryder confirmed Tuesday that troops in Iraq had been attacked 10 times between Oct. 17-24, while during the same period troops in Syria had been attacked three times. Pentagon officials said Monday that all the attacks on U.S. troops have Iran’s fingerprints on them, though there is no evidence at this time showing the country’s leaders ordered the attacks.
That last sentence makes me sick.
It doesn’t matter if Iran’s leaders specifically ordered the attacks or not.
These groups only exist because of Iran.
They get their funding and weapons from Iran.
So they are going to do what the Iranians want them to do, and they are not going to do what the Iranians don’t want them to do.
The bottom line is that Iran is responsible.
On Tuesday, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken promised that the U.S. would respond “swiftly and decisively” to any attack from Iranian proxy groups…
Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Tuesday warned Iran that the United States would respond “decisively” to any attack by its proxies, as tensions rise with the Israel-Hamas war. “The United States does not seek conflict with Iran. We do not want this war to widen. But if Iran or its proxies attack US personnel anywhere, make no mistake. We will defend our people, we will defend our security — swiftly and decisively,” Blinken told a UN Security Council session.
So do it.
Iranian-backed terror groups have already attacked our forces 13 times.
Go get them.
Do you need an engraved invitation?
Needless to say, the Biden administration isn’t eager to fight the Iranians and the terror groups that they sponsor, because that could potentially spark the apocalyptic phase of World War III.
That probably would not be good for Joe Biden’s chances of winning in 2024.
And as the war in the Middle East fully erupts, there are hundreds of thousands of U.S. citizens that may need to be evacuated…
The administration, despite its forceful public support for Israel, is deeply alarmed by the prospect of escalation, and in recent days it has turned its attention in part to the complicated logistics of abruptly having to relocate a large number of people, according to three people familiar with the discussions. There were about 600,000 U.S. citizens in Israel and another 86,000 believed to be in Lebanon when Hamas attacked, according to State Department estimates.
Personally, I don’t know why any U.S. citizens would still be in the Middle East at this point.
If you are there right now, you need to understand that a major war is about to erupt.
The death and destruction that we will witness will be off the charts.
So get out while you still can, and you can return once the fighting is over.
Earlier today, I was stunned to learn that French President Emmanuel Macron is interested in putting together an “international coalition” to fight Hamas…
French President Emmanuel Macron calls for the international coalition fighting the Islamic State group to be expanded to also fight Hamas after the October 7 assault on Israel. Macron, speaking after talks with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem, said that countries fighting ISIS “should also fight against Hamas.”
But I don’t think that it will happen.
I think that Europe will sit this one out, because I think that most western European nations would prefer to stay out of the war in the Middle East.
So it will be the U.S. and Israel on one side, and the Iranians and their proxies on the other.
And it won’t be pretty.
There is one more thing that I wanted to quickly mention before I close this article.
In the year after Roe v. Wade was overturned, the number of legal abortions in the United States actually went up…
In the year after the Supreme Court ended the constitutional right to abortion, something unexpected happened: The total number of legal abortions in the United States did not fall. Instead, it appeared to increase slightly, by about 0.2 percent, according to the first full-year count of abortions provided nationwide.
Our nation had an opportunity to change direction, but that did not happen.
And now as we prepare to fight World War III, we should not expect our efforts to be blessed.
Of course Iran is not the only opponent that the U.S. has to deal with.
Conflicts with China and Russia are looming as well.
I can definitely understand why the Biden administration is hesitant to start hitting the Iranians and their proxies, but they aren’t going to stop hitting our troops.
So either the Biden administration is going to have to pull all U.S. forces out of Iraq and Syria, or U.S. forces are going to have to start striking back.
