If someone attacks your troops 46 times in less than a month, you are at war with them. But the Biden administration certainly does not want to admit that we are at war with Iran. We are heading into an election year, and many Americans don't want to hear that we are involved in yet another war in the Middle East. The mainstream media isn't telling us the truth either. Even though U.S. troops in Syria and Iraq have now come under fire 46 times since October 7th, the mainstream media continues to insist that we aren't actually "at war" with Iran.
But how can they say that?
Following the terror attacks of October 7th, Iranian-backed groups attacked U.S. troops more than two dozen times in Syria and Iraq.
So the Biden administration conducted a couple of airstrikes, and they were hoping that this would be enough to get the terrorists to back off.
But that didn't work.
Instead, Iranian-backed groups just kept on attacking U.S. bases.
So now the U.S. military has conducted another "self-defense strike". The following comes directly from a statement that was just released by Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin…
Today, at President Biden's direction, U.S. military forces conducted a self-defense strike on a facility in eastern Syria used by Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and affiliated groups. This strike was conducted by two U.S. F-15s against a weapons storage facility. This precision self-defense strike is a response to a series of attacks against U.S. personnel in Iraq and Syria by IRGC-Quds Force affiliates. The President has no higher priority than the safety of U.S. personnel, and he directed today's action to make clear that the United States will defend itself, its personnel, and its interests.
Please go back and read the highlighted portion of that paragraph again.
We hit a base that is "used by Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps".
In other words, this is a facility that is used by Iranian troops.
Of course this strike didn't work either.
