This was after the Iran-funded base used a drone to attack and kill a US contractor.
Boy the world sure is afraid of Biden. He really has returned America to its pinnacle place in the world, as NeverTrump promised he would.
The US conducted an airstrike in Syria against what it said were Iranian-affiliated facilities after a suspected Iranian drone on Thursday struck a facility housing US personnel in the country, killing an American contractor and wounding five US service members.The contractor was an American citizen, a spokesman for US Central Command confirmed, and an additional US contractor was also wounded in the strike. An official familiar with the matter told CNN that the injured service members are all in stable condition.
“The intelligence community assess the UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) to be of Iranian origin,” the Pentagon said.
In response to the strike, President Joe Biden authorized a precision airstrike “in eastern Syria against facilities used by groups affiliated with Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC),” Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin said in the statement.
The US, according to the Pentagon statement, “took proportionate and deliberate action intended to limit the risk of escalation and minimize casualties.”
Wow that certainly sounds menacing. I’m sure Iran will be on best behavior now.
I wonder if the strike killed any Austere Religious Scholars, as the Washington Post said of Trump’s airstrike that took out the top leader of the Revolutionary Guards. You know, when the left screamed about an effective strike against Iranian interests in Syria.
I guess they couldn’t agree on the pronouns the air defense system preferred. Under idiot Biden and his regime of useless failures, the US has become a global joke.
