The Blood of Three More Americans Is on Biden’s Hands

After Iranian proxies killed three U.S. troops, we’re left wondering again where the red line is for Joe Biden.

“I’m supposedly an expert on foreign policy,” mused Joe Biden the other day. Yet we’re a long way past laughing at this clown of a commander-in-chief after his supposed expertise resulted in the deaths of three American service members over the weekend.

An unmanned aerial drone attacked U.S. forces in Jordan near the Syrian border, killing three troops and wounding at least two dozen more. There have been more than 150 attacks in recent months on U.S. forces stationed in the Middle East, wounding scores of military personnel — some with life-altering brain injuries. Iran-backed jihadis have disrupted critical shipping lanes by attacking ships, which cost the lives of two Navy SEALs earlier this month. And that all came after Iran-backed Hamas attacked Israel on October 7, killing 1,200 Israelis.

This time, Biden released a statement saying “America’s heart is heavy” at the loss of those who represent the “best of our nation.” His administration knows the assault “was carried out by radical Iran-backed militant groups operating in Syria and Iraq,” and he promised to “hold all those responsible to account at a time and in a manner of our choosing.”

Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin echoed that, saying, “The President and I will not tolerate attacks on American forces, and we will take all necessary actions to defend the United States, our troops and our interests.” Austin, you may recall, went AWOL early this month with a trip to the hospital that he didn’t disclose to either his boss or his deputy.

Likewise, General CQ Brown, the DEI Certified chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said that “the goal is to deter” Iran. Notably, however, he added, “We don’t want to go down a path of greater escalation that drives to a much broader conflict within the region.” We are already on that path, as a direct result of Biden’s ineptitude.

The mullahs aren’t exactly quaking in their turbans at the idea that Biden and his sidekicks might eventually lob a few missiles vaguely in the direction of some “militant groups” (read: jihadi terrorists) somewhere, just as they probably scoffed when Team Biden grudgingly rebranded the Houthis as a terrorist group. The Iranians and their proxies know Biden fears “escalation” above all else.

Biden’s weakness is both disastrous and infuriating. His surrender and retreat from Afghanistan in 2021 resulted in the deaths of 13 American troops. He responded with a bungled drone strike that killed 10 innocent people, not the jihadis responsible.

Let’s just hope history doesn’t fully repeat itself.

Either way, make no mistake: The blood of American Patriots is on Biden’s hands.

Chaos in the Middle East has only increased on Biden’s watch. Abandoning Afghanistan to the same Taliban we ousted 20 years prior sent a message loud and clear: America is a paper tiger. That emboldened the new Axis of Evil — Iran, Russia, and China — meaning the entire world is in turmoil and at risk just so Biden could score some political points for saying he kept a promise to get us out of Afghanistan. Vladimir Putin invaded Ukraine because of that blunder, and Xi Jinping has his eyes on Taiwan for the same reason.

Donald Trump effectively kept American enemies at bay. He took on China and Russia (despite the fallacious “collusion, and he rightly backed out of Barack Obama’s terrible nuclear deal with Iran. Biden has worked feverishly to restore that deal, along with repeating Obama’s disgraceful transactions giving Iran literal piles of money.

When Iran messed around, it found out how serious Trump was. The U.S. took out Qasem Soleimani, leader of Iran’s elite terrorist Corps-Quds forces, along with Soleimani’s Iraqi counterpart, paramilitary commander Abu Mahdi al-Mohandes.

Ronald Reagan showed the same kind of resolve, and it worked. Biden, on the other hand, has been harsher against the January 6 defendants than he has against Islamofascists killing Americans in the Middle East.

Our hearts are indeed heavy for the grieving families of the three dead Americans, but these stories are about more than their lives. There are dire and deadly consequences for Biden’s gross ineptitude.

We’re reminded once again of the words of former Defense Secretary Robert Gates, who in 2014 said of Biden, "He has been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades.” A decade later, that’s truer than ever.

Update: After publishing Monday, the Pentagon identified the soldiers killed: Sergeant William Jerome Rivers, Specialist Kennedy Ladon Sanders, and Specialist Breonna Alexsondria Moffett. They were part of the 718th Engineer Company, 926th Engineer Battalion, 926th Engineer Brigade out of Fort Moore, Georgia.
