When will he act?
"The only answer to these attacks must be devastating military retaliation against Iran's terrorist forces, both in Iran and across the Middle East, another Republican, Sen. Tom Cotton, said. "Anything less will confirm Joe Biden as a coward unworthy of being commander-in-chief."

Link to quote: Biden says he knows how he is going to respond to US troop deaths, but he doesn't want a wider war (msn.com)



We all remember how it was done. The
head of Iran's elite Quds Force was killed at Baghdad airport, along with other Iran-backed militia figures in a strike ordered by President Donald Trump. There was no war. Tehran got the message. The next time Trump might target Ali Khamenei.

Under Joe Biden the US military in the middle east has been playing defense. Up until recently US forces have successfully taken down incoming missiles and drones. What nobody could foresee was that an incoming attack would be confused with a US drone returning to base. I guess that is the problem with playing defense all the time.

Now we have somebody who says that he has finally decided what the response will be, yet no quick response. The military itself is now under the command of a bunch of woke dimwits promoted by Biden for reasons that satisfy his leftist base rather than national security. Advocating for transgenderism in the military was more important. The US Navy missed their minimum recruitment limit by 6,000 and is now accepting those who did not complete High School. 


Iran's Revolutionary Guards said on Wednesday they would respond to any U.S. threat.

Israeli forces spent yesterday pounding targets in southern Gaza including a Hamas enclave which also happens to be Nasser Hospital in Khan Younis. Israeli forces stormed another hospital in the occupied West Bank and killed three militants including a Hamas Commander.  In southern Gaza the IDF is now flooding tunnels. Then there is the "pause plan" being mediated by Qatar. Last night in an exclusive interview Fox News Bret Baier questioned Qatar's Prime Minister.


In other news:

Imran Khan, the former Pakistani prime minister, has been sentenced to 14 years in prison in what many have described as a political trial. Sound familiar?

President Biden’s campaign hopes Taylor Swift will endorse him. The dems obviously regard the young as that silly that they would vote for Biden on a TS endorsement.

A House committee endorsed Articles of Impeachment accusing Alejandro Mayorkas, Biden’s homeland security secretary, of refusing to enforce immigration law.

The Justice Department is investigating whether Representative Cori Bush "mishandled" campaign funds.

Fair Fight, the voting rights group that Stacey Abrams founded is laying off most of its staff after incurring debts through prolonged court battles.

The New York City Council overrode Mayor Eric Adams veto of two criminal justice bills. Police officers will be required to record the race, age and gender of most people they stop, and the city’s jails will ban solitary confinement. In other words: don't even think about holding minorities accountable for their actions.

Last but not least: Joe Biden is now going to visit East Palestine, Ohio, one year after the catastrophic train derailment there. Obviously, this is a campaign stunt that fools no one. Donald Trump went out there when it counted, when it happened, not during an election year. May they give Biden the cold shoulder.

I'm hoping the residents of East Palestine toss rotten eggs at him.

Any ideas on what "fearless leader" will do to respond to the attack on US personnel?

Brandon has a lot of gall heading to East Palestine, OH now. It must be a desperate attempt to bring his flagging poll numbers up.

What can he do? He already lifted all of the sanctions Trump put into place against Iran. There is no getting that genie back into the bottle. Russia, China, and even our NATO allies will balk at putting their sanctions back in place. China wants Iranian oil; so do our NATO allies.

His tepid response to the attacks on US military ships by the Houthi and Hezbollah have only emboldened them. Not to mention wasting tax payer money using US multi million missiles to down cheap Iranian air and sea drones. He never should have deployed 3/4 of our navy to the region if they weren't going to be used for anything more than Iranians to test their weaponry on.

Iran wants a wider war. They want their normal enemies in the Middle East to have to choose sides between US/Israel and the growing dissent of their own people.

The longer Brandon waits to respond the larger the response will need to be. Democrats claimed Trump was going to start WWIII- they were wrong. Brandon is doing everything in his power to make their fevered dreams come true during his watch.

Waco was 30 years ago John; and Trump had nothing to do with it no matter how hard you want to spin it.

But Trruuummmmppppp!!!!!!!

Does your obsession with Trump know no bounds?

As for Brandon- he didn't and still doesn't give a shit about the people of East Palestine, OH. His actions (slow response and complete debacle on the clean up and testing after the derailment), and inaction granting them disaster relief, prove it.

The Biden administration sent federal emergency officials to the site of Ohio’s toxic train derailment Saturday — two weeks after the disaster   released a chemical plume   that   contaminated local streams   and caused a mass evacuation of panicked residents.

“US [Environmental Protection Agency] and Ohio EPA have been working together since day one,” Gov. Mike DeWine and Thomas Sivak of the Federal Emergency Management Agency   said in a joint statement   late Friday. “Tomorrow, FEMA will supplement federal efforts.”

Locals in East Palestine, Ohio have   bitterly criticized   the slow state and federal response since a train carrying toxic vinyl chloride and other chemicals derailed Feb. 3.

A “controlled release” and burn of hazardous materials from the 150-car Norfolk Southern freight train — conducted, officials said, to avoid a major explosion — killed thousands of fish,   sickened pets and wildlife , and   sparked fears   of serious health risks for the town’s 5,000 residents.

But the crisis did not qualify for a federal disaster declaration — or for FEMA aid, a Biden administration official   told Fox News   earlier on Friday.

“FEMA is on the frontlines when there is a hurricane or tornado,” the official said. “This situation is different.”

When it comes to disgusting campaign stunts Brandon takes first prize.

You ignored the truth again.

From the source in post 1.2.11

Former President Donald Trump made his   campaign debut for his 2024 run   on Saturday in two key early-voting states.

Trump's first stop was in New Hampshire, where he teased a ramp-up in campaign events, laid out an agenda focused on crime, immigration and education and criticized the investigation into classified documents found at his Mar-a-Lago estate.

"This is about the beginning. You know, this is it. We're starting. We're starting right here as a candidate for president," Trump said as he delivered remarks at the New Hampshire Republican Party's annual meeting.

Me, I wouldn't say it to their faces. I would let my friends who have served; and a few that are still serving; in the military do it. Especially the ones that were forced out by Brandon's vaccine mandate.

Brandon and Democrats have no problem questioning the loyalty of those serving- even when they have done nothing wrong.

Two members of the National Guard were removed from the mission to provide security for President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration after they were discovered to have ties to "fringe right" militias, according to the   Associated Press .

An Army official and a U.S. intelligence official told the AP they did not find a plot against Biden himself but that as a precaution, the two members were removed from the massive security force preparing for Wednesday's ceremony. They did not say what group they belonged to. The National Guard and Secret Service did not comment on the report.

The report came after the AP reported on Sunday that the   FBI was vetting all 25,000  National Guard members deployed to Washington ahead of the swearing-in over fears of an "insider attack."

"We're continually going through the process, and taking second, third looks at every one of the individuals assigned to this operation," Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy   told the outlet , adding that as of Sunday officials had not flagged any major issues.

A day later, acting Defense Secretary Christopher Miller said in a statement that there is   "no intelligence indicating an insider threat."

Some Republicans had bristled at the background checks. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said it was the "most offensive thing he'd ever heard."

"No one should ever question the loyalty or professionalism" of National Guard members,   he said on Twitter , adding that he would "never" send his troops to the nation's capital again "if they are disrespected like this."

Recruitment is down under Brandon's watch. You don't need to ask why.

Military experts   sounded the alarm about the Biden administration's "woke" policies within the Department of Defense as the U.S. military is poised to be the smallest in 80 years, all while facing emerging global threats. 

The number of active duty service members has declined by 64,000 within the last three years, bringing the total number of troops down to 1,284,500, according to the Defense Authorization Bill. This means the U.S. military will field the smallest force since before World War II. 

Retired Navy SEAL Mike Sarraille accused the White House of treating U.S. troops stationed in the Middle East like "cannon fodder," arguing the Biden administration's leadership has heavily impacted the recruitment crisis.

"The few in the military have always carried the burden for the many, but the alarming decrease in numbers not only poses a threat to our national security and defense strategy, but it also raises a question: can we confront the emerging global threats? This is not a recruitment issue. This is a leadership problem," Sarraille told Carley Shimkus on   "Fox & Friends First."

"Talent begets talent, and quite frankly, why would this younger generation want to go work for an administration that uses their troops as cannon fodder in the Middle East like we're seeing?"

"The administration, instead of creating a lethal force in raising our technology capabilities, has decided to implement woke progressive policies like renaming bases and funding or providing additional funding for DEI programs," he continued. 

U.S. military recruiters   fell short of their goals by 41,000 service members in fiscal year 2023, according to Deputy Under Secretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness Ashish S. Vazirani. 

Army veteran and counterterrorism expert Mike Glover, who leads a special operations prep course in Utah, said he has seen the number of sign-ups for his course dwindle as the military branches struggle to recruit new service members. He argued the crisis has stemmed from low morale, which has ultimately been impacted by a progressive policy push within the DOD. 

Is there anything Brandon can't fuck up?

So we only have 1,284,500 active military today ? So what?

The number of active duty service members has declined by 64,000 within the last three years, bringing the total number of troops down to 1,284,500, 

So we only have 97% of the military force , in terms of personnel, as we had three years ago. Is that going to keep you awake at night ?

We all remember how it was done. The head of Iran's elite Quds Force was killed at Baghdad airport, along with other Iran-backed militia figures in a strike ordered by President Donald Trump. There was no war. Tehran got the message. The next time Trump might target Ali Khamenei.

In response Iran targeted two US bases and fired ballistic missiles at both injuring over 100 US Troops, remember Trump said that ''all was well no deaths or injuries just some headaches'' turns out like most everything else he says it was a lie. Trump did not retaliate for the ballistic missile attack on the two bases, he may have thought that Iran would target him next. 

As far as a US retaliatory strike on Iran for the killing of three US troops what is the rush? It is always a time and place of our choosing and it was said that it will be more than one strike in a layed approach. Vengence is always best served cold.

I don't lie, Kavika. I don't go around telling people that the Biden policy is similar to that of Reagan's or Trump's. You did that.


As for Regan is that the same Reagan that pulled  out of Lebanon after 241 US serviceman were killed in Beirut and 100 wounded, that Reagan or the Regan that called Menachem Begin and told him to quit shelling Beruit, that one and you realize that they are one and the same.

The military advised Reagan to do that and Reagan did it. Is Biden pulling out?  The answer is NO.

So, where is the comparison?.


No one in their right mind wants a wider or all out war in the ME with the possible exception of some armchair generals.

That's not true either. Iran obviously wants a wider war and so does its proxies (Hamas, Hezbollah and the Houthis). 

So, Kavika, since we finally got to part of the Biden policy, what should Biden now do after we have troops killed and troops still stationed in the middle east and as you and your president keep saying "we don't want war?"

NO, Kavika, your standard tactic is to say what about Reagan or what about Trump. Unfortunately, there is no comparison.

I was again pointing out the BS in your comment regarding Trump and his actions. Deal with it.

You are the one that brought up Reagan I just responded with facts, can you dispute them? If not you'll have to deal with your own inept responses.

How about you simply address what YOUR president is doing?

I did, I agree with taking our time in a retaliatory strike. He is your president as well unless your not a US citizen.

I never said any such thing, you imagination is running amuck.

The military advised Reagan to do that and Reagan did it. Is Biden pulling out?  The answer is NO.

If you are not aware of it the President in this case Reagan is the CIC he makes the final decision. He did not retaliate after 241 US serviceman were killed.  A few months before that the US Embassy was bombed killing 52 in Beirut.

You are the one whining that Biden isn't attacking Iran and here your hero Reagan didn't do shit when 241 US servicemen were killed and 100 wounded. Deal with the reality of that, Vic.

That's not true either. Iran obviously wants a wider war and so does its proxies (Hamas, Hezbollah and the Houthis). 

I didn't think that I would have to add the disclaimer ''with the exception of Iran and proxies'' but I guess you have nothing else to hold on to.

So, Kavika, since we finally got to part of the Biden policy, what should Biden now do after we have troops killed and troops still stationed in the middle east and as you and your president keep saying "we don't want war?"

Biden is doing what exactly should be done, even though you as a armchair general don't agree with it. Oh course we don't want an all out war so the response has to be measuered and at the same time very strong. That is how it works, Vic.

You have consistently tried to say just that. How many times have you invoked Reagan or Trump to defend dumb ass Biden?


If you are not aware of it the President in this case Reagan is the CIC he makes the final decision. He did not retaliate after 241 US serviceman were killed.  A few months before that the US Embassy was bombed killing 52 in Beirut.

And Reagan always took responsibility for all his decisions. He sent the Marines at the request of the Lebanese government. History will decide if it was a wise decision, but it is in no way like what we have going on now. Biden isn't pulling troops out. He had them dodging bullets.


You are the one whining that Biden isn't attacking Iran and here your hero Reagan didn't do shit when 241 US servicemen were killed and 100 wounded. Deal with the reality of that, Vic.

Biden is neither responding to attacks nor is he pulling out the troops. So, Kavika, will our troops simply be sitting ducks?


I didn't think that I would have to add the disclaimer ''with the exception of Iran and proxies''

Of course you do. Iran holds the cards when it comes to a wider war.


Biden is doing what exactly should be done,

In other words, whatever he does or doesn't do, you are with him. I kind of figured that out.


even though you as a armchair general don't agree with it.

Oh course we don't want an all out war so the response has to be measuered and at the same time very strong.

Bombing empty warehouses is neither measured nor strong. American forces have been killed because there have been little consequences for targeting them.


That is how it works, Vic. 

For you it seems.

''tried to say just that'' what nonsense. You are the one that brought up Reagan and what you call defending Biden is in reality pointing out the BS in your comments regarding Trump. Reality Vic, deal with it.

And Reagan always took responsibility for all his decisions. He sent the Marines at the request of the Lebanese government. History will decide if it was a wise decision, but it is in no way like what we have going on now. Biden isn't pulling troops out. He had them dodging bullets.

History has decided it was a chicken shit move, you are the one that advocates retaliatory strikes but not this time, why not, Vic?

Of course it ''is in no way like what we have going on now''....Your correct for a change, 241 dead 100 wounded is nothing like what is going on now.

Says the self-described "squad leader!"

And proud of it,  being someone who has been in the military and led good men in combat. Reality Vic, while you sat on your ass whining, some of us served our country.

Bombing empty warehouses is neither measured nor strong. American forces have been killed because there have been little consequences for targeting them.

Cherry picking again, sad...You've missed all the reports re proxies that were killed by US strikes.

For you it seems.

Yes, for me and the tens of millions that deal in reality.

Actually, people on the left have defended it.


And proud of it,

Bull Shit. Conservative veterans (which most veterans are) don't wear their service on their sleaves. There are only 2 on this site that invoke their service to try and make a point. You dishonor the military.


Cherry picking again, sad...You've missed all the reports re proxies that were killed by US strikes.

Iran supplies them and calls all the shots. Even fucking Biden is now admitting it and he is the one that loosened the Trump sanctions.

Here is a fact:

Since taking office, the Biden administration has taken a series of calculated steps to rejoin the Iran nuclear deal. Most recently, it waived sanctions on the Iranian oil trade,  allowing  Tehran access to frozen funds in foreign banks that it can now use to fund terrorism. Even the sanctions that remain on the books are not being enforced. U.S. financial sanctions can be used to end Iran's nuclear ambitions and the clerical regime's support of terrorism.

You and a few others here don't accept facts.


Yes, for me and the tens of millions that deal in reality.

Cheers from the Squad Leader.

You could never lead me. Nor could your coward traitor president.

In response Iran targeted two US bases and fired ballistic missiles at both injuring over 100 US Troops, remember Trump said that ''all was well no deaths or injuries just some headaches'' turns out like most everything else he says it was a lie.

These MAGA have selective memories.

There were no deaths.

Biden has 13 deaths in leaving Afghanistan, 5 deaths and about 40 injuries more recently, directly as a result of his policy.

Not as short as yours.

Iranian proxy militias launched two fresh attacks on US bases in Syria and Iraq on Friday, after US warplanes hit targets in Syria belonging to the Revolutionary Guard.

Tasnim news agency affiliated with the IRGC reported at midday local time that “six missiles were launched from the vicinity of Bu Kamal and al-Mayadeen” at the US base near the al-Omar oil fields. The website said in its headline that “American forces were caught by surprise.”

Later Tasnim also reported that the Ain al-Asad airbase in Iraq hosting US troops was hit by drones. Tasnim and Iraqi news websites reported that Islamic Jihad, a front of Iraqi Shiite forces loyal to Tehran, had issued a statement accepting responsibility.

There has been no confirmation by Iraq or the United States about the reported attacks.

If true, these fresh attacks would constitute a quick response by Iranian forces to a limited  US retaliatory attack  launched hours earlier at two reportedly unmanned weapons depots of the Revolutionary Guard near Bu Kamal.

The Islamic Resistance in Iraq claimed that its drones had achieved a “direct hit at the Ain- al-Assad airbase.

Tasnim said in its report about the attacks, “These attacks have taken place in response to the continuous crimes of the Israeli occupiers against the Palestinian people and the support of the United States for this regime.”

Iran’s armed proxy forces in Syria and Iraq have launched nearly 20 drone and rocket attacks against US bases in the two countries since the October 7 Hamas terror raid into Israel.

President Joe Biden and other US officials had been warning this week of retaliation if Iranian-affiliated forces continued targeting American forces. However, multiple and consecutive attacks remained unanswered until Thursday night.

Tepid weak bullshit response by Brandon followed up by Iran's direct attack on two US bases in Iraq.

The obvious Biden response would be to support separatists in Pakistan and claim an Arab spring is underway.  Ain't democracy grand?

Biden can't win a war by actually fighting one.  So, Biden needs to use threats of war as a distraction.  Don't people recognize Biden's neoliberal foreign policy?  Kind of explains why the US has been stuck in perpetual war for the last 40 years.  It's been one quagmire after another since Reagan was in the White House.

Last but not least: Joe Biden is now going to visit East Palestine, Ohio, one year after the catastrophic train derailment there. Obviously, this is a campaign stunt that fools no one.

The people of East Palestine, Ohio aren't stupid. They know why Joe Biden waited until his re-election year to finally go there to show how much he "cares" about their health, homes, and businesses.
