Recently, multiple Americans have indicated that Biden is “weak,” and it’s not hard to see why.
After all, consider how eager Iran is to launch varied attacks against U.S. interests in the Middle East, clearly unafraid of consequences from Biden.
As there likely won’t be any.
“There was a direct message relayed,” White House spokesman John Kirby remarked briskly, as if “a direct message” will make any difference whatsoever coming from Biden.
Indeed, three drones were recently deployed at the USS Carney, while three US commercial ships were directly struck by ballistic missiles.
Biden’s response? Crickets.
Nothing but a bunch of ghostwritten words with zero action to back them up.
Just consider the bland remarks from National Security Advisory Jake Sullivan.
“We will continue as we move forward to consult very closely with allies and partners to determine and take all appropriate responses. We have every reason to believe that these attacks while they were launched by the Houthis in Yemen are fully enabled by Iran,” Sullivan drawled.
Well, gee, thank you for the observation, Captain Obvious. Rather clearly, Iran is the one behind the attacks.
The question is … what is Biden going to do about it?
Apparently, make like a liberal and displace the problem to someone else. In this case, “someone else” is “the entire world.”
“This is an issue for the entire world … We are talking about the Houthis here, they are the ones with the finger on the trigger, that gun, the weapons here are being supplied by Iran and Iran, we believe, is the ultimate party responsible for this,” Sullivan continued.
Again, reiterating the obvious, as far as Iran being “responsible.”
And, again, Sullivan offers absolutely no deterrent whatsoever, or any insight into why exactly terrorists should stop attacking an obviously weakened nation.
Little wonder that Republicans have skewered the White House approach to date, in particular Senator Thom Tillis.
In a searing letter, Tillis declared longstanding concerns with the Biden regime, especially when accounting for the decision to return $6B to Iran.
“We wrote to express our concern over the administration’s decision to release $6 billion worth of frozen Iranian assets in exchange for the return of American detainees. This decision reinforced an incredibly dangerous precedent of providing ransom payments to the world’s greatest state sponsor of terrorism and put a price on the life of every American overseas,” Tillis noted.
Luckily, the legislature has since blocked Biden’s attempt to unfreeze $6B in assets, but the administration remains totally “disjointed” in its approach to terrorism.
“A strong signal of deterrence – utilizing military, economic, and diplomatic tools – is needed if we want to stop the attacks against U.S. personnel and prevent the war in Gaza from expanding into a protracted regional conflict. Unfortunately, the administration’s military and economic responses to Iran and its proxies have not only been disproportionate, they appear to be completely disjointed,” Tillis proclaimed.
Probably “disjointed” due to all the favors the bungling Bidens have to pay back for their frightening overseas dealings.
