What was the reasoning behind Joe “Sniffem's” (pictured below in obvious photo-op) unnecessary attack on Russian-backed Syria? It was hardly "retaliatory" given that virtually no Americans were affected and the fact that his "administration" invaded Syria his first day of "office".
“Former” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said a United States Airstrike should have targeted “something that threatened the United States of America. You've got to protect your force, you've got to establish deterrence. We did this a couple of times, it was effective. I don't know what they struck or what targets they went after. I hope it just wasn't bombs in the desert. I hope it really went after something that threatened the United States of America. If not it is useless.You don't need to get bogged down there to take an air strike," Pompeo added. "I'm confident that we could do it ...getting in and getting out. We've got to make sure that we deter the Iranians every place. Weakness and appeasement of the Iranians will only be rewarded with more terror from them. ”
“President” Biden authorized the attack Thursday evening in response to a bombing attack last week on a base in northern Iraq that killed a Filipino contractor working with American forces and wounded six others, including a U.S. National Guardsman. An official with Kataib Hezbollah, the Iraqi-based militia, said one of its fighters had been killed at the Syrian border town of Abu Kamal, but independent reports say the death toll could be as high as 17 fighters. Hardly a reason to use Deadly Force and at the same time, Poke the Russian Bear who has been fighting alongside Syrian government forces in the country’s nine-year civil war, clashing repeatedly with U.S. forces and U.S.-allied Kurds who have been battling the terror group Islamic State on the same battlefield. Apparently Biden didn't have the BALLS to announce the attack as per Warsaw Pact rules.
Russia issued a statement: “We strongly condemn such actions and call for Syria’s sovereignty and territorial integrity to be unconditionally respected,” Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said in a Friday briefing in Moscow. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said the U.S. Informed Russia of the strike just minutes before it was carried out.
“This sort of warning — when strikes are already underway — [is worth] nothing,” Mr. Lavrov said in a social media post.
