President Biden authorized the military to retaliate against Iran after Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps crashed a UAV into a building, killing a U.S. contractor and wounding six other Americans.
This move comes after the total number of troops killed by Iran-backed groups continues to rise, experts say.
Iran’s regional strategy of working through proxies and carve-outs is continuing unabated. The question is, what will the Biden administration do next?
We need a president who will take a tougher stance against Iran and its proxies.
We need to ensure that deployed troops have adequate air defense cover to deny and defeat the persistent rocket and drone threat. Failure to do so will only lead to more deaths.
President Biden’s lack of a long-term solution will only lead to more deaths of U.S. troops and civilians.
It’s time for a new strategy that addresses the root cause of the problem and protects our troops and civilians.
