War with Iran has already started … but no one told Biden
The war with Iran has already started and we are either too stupid or too weak to do anything about. It has started because Iran is engaging in an undeclared war against both Israel and the United States – and the world’s democracies.
In terms of Israel, it is a war over land as well as religion. The goal is to topple the Jewish government and eradicate the Jewish people. It is a genocidal war being carried out by Hamas, Hezbollah and other terrorist organizations orchestrated and equipped by the folks in Tehran.
In terms of the United States, it is a cultural/religious war – and an assault on America’s leadership in the world. It is being actively carried out by Iran and its network of Islamic terrorist proxies throughout the world – and in a partnership with socialist dictatorships, including China, Russia and North Korea.
This war has been planned, financed, and managed by Iran because they see opportunity in America’s profound weakness in recent years. Even as Iran leaders feint a willingness to negotiate, the long-term objective of bringing down the United States. Their mantra has not changed since the Iranian revolution in 1979. “Death to the United States.” “Death to Israel.” “Death to infidels.”
It is not just a matter of words. Since the fall of Iran to terrorists, the international Islamic terrorist network has committed hundreds of deadly attacks on Americans and American assets at home and abroad. On 9/11, they carried out the deadliest attack on American soil since the Civil War. And what was our response? A 12-year cat-and-mouse game to kill Osama bin Laden.
Since the Iraq War that toppled Saddam Hussein, the United States essentially withdrew from Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan. We assured Putin that America would not put boots on the ground – or planes in the air – in support of Ukrainians existential battle. President Biden offered limited aid to Ukraine even as he cowed to Putin’s blustering nuclear threats.
It has been revealed that Hamas has been planning the current attack on Israel for two years under the direct guidance and support of Iran. Iran has also authorized attacks on the United States military – injuring a number American soldiers. At the time of this writing there have been almost 30 such attacks on American assets and military personnel in the past month – with a number of injuries, from minor to crippling. The Biden response was a couple of missile attacks that killed no one — and did little to damage terrorist operations or discourage more.
The official – and insane – official policy of the Biden Administration is that there is no hard evidence that Iran had participated in the attack on Israel – although they conceded that the attack could not have happened without Iran’s support and approval. That is diplomatic double talk, which Iran will correctly read as further evidence of American weakness.
Washington says it is working to avoid the War from spreading beyond Israel and Hamas. HELLO! The War has already expanded with rockets being fired on Israeli forces from Hezbollah in Lebanon … clashes in the West Bank … rockets from Syria and Iraq … rockets launched by the Islamic jihad. Then there is the Houthis, whose slogan is “God is great, death to the US, death to Israel, curse the Jews, and victory for Islam.”
What we see is not the independent actions of ragtag terrorist groups – nor the actions of so-called “lone wolves.” No. No. No. This is one gigantic international terrorist organism with one stated objective. The end of Israel and the end of American world leadership. The command center for that undeclared – but real — war is in Tehran.
Biden explains why he is not more aggressive in terms of the situation in the Middle East. He does not want to see it expand into a wider war. Me neither. But unfortunately, it is being expanded into a wider war by Iran and its proxies and allies despite the wishes of Biden and me..
By having the United States stand down in the face of Iran’s increasingly aggressive behavior against the west, Biden has not prevented the conflict from expanding. He is only preventing America from winning.
So, there ‘tis.
