Max Boot of the Washington Post tweeted:
“Biden is developing a smart strategy for Iran (show that it can’t attack US troops with impunity but also show willingness to negotiate) and Saudi Arabia (don’t sever the alliance but recalibrate it). Mercifully absent are Trump’s juvenile taunts.”
So Biden is not just a smart Warhawk – he is a polite Warhawk.
Amy Siskind, an “activist” and author for POLITICO was forced to take down a Tweet she posted because it was too insipid to be taken seriously:
“So different having a Military action under Biden, no middle school level threats on Twitter, trust Biden and his teams competence.”
I think I just threw up in my mouth.
It is like they will attempt to sell you on the idea that Biden and Harris are kind and loving “progressive” bombers.
But these niceties fall flat when you look at Biden’s record.
In October 2019 in a speech in Iowa, Joe Biden referred to then-President Trump’s decision to withdraw troops from Northern Syria as “erratic” and “impulsive” which will “endanger our troops.” Therefore, the Syrian airstrikes within just 37 days of Joe Biden’s administration do not come as a huge surprise to keen observers. Joe Biden’s political record, which is extensive, makes it very clear that he is pro-war. In the wake of the 9/11 attacks, Joe Biden voted for Authorization for Use of Military Force of 2001, a legislation which is highly responsible for U.S. Military intervention in Afghanistan, the Philippines, Georgia, Yemen, Djibouti, Kenya, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Iraq and Somalia.
In 2002, Joe Biden did not only vote, but also championed the effort for the Iraq War, which led to the death of Saddam Hussain and has since then marred the region in a permanent state of instability.
In 2012, under the Vice Presidency of Joe Biden, NATO did a bombing campaign in Libya, aiding the ouster of Muammar Gaddafi. Libya has been failed state ever since, with open slave markets.
In 2013, the Obama administration, in which Joe Biden was the Vice President, had secretly authorized the CIA to supply the Syrian rebels fighting against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and the Syrian Government with weapons. This weapons supply program was known as Timber Sycamore and was disbanded in mid-2017 by the Trump administration. One of the reported ‘downsides‘of this program was that some of the rebels funded and trained under this program defected to ISIS.
