On Monday rockets were fired into Iraq. Numerous individuals were injured, including an American service member. Biden does nothing.
Biden is too weak to make it out of the basement so it is no surprise that he is unable to do anything about a US service member who was injured yesterday presumably by Iran. The military better get used the way the Biden gang is going to not cover their back.
The Washington Examiner reported:
Secretary of State Antony Blinken is in no rush to blame Iran for a rocket attack on a military base in northern Iraq that left one civilian contractor dead and several others injured, including a U.S. service member.
After years of former President Donald Trump threatening Tehran with U.S. military force after its attacks in Iraq and other aggressive actions in the region, the Biden administration is vowing to try diplomacy first. But it also has yet to remove a single Trump-era sanction on Iran as it searches for a way to alter the Islamic republic’s behavior.
“We are working in close partnership with Kurdish and Iraqi authorities,” State Department spokesman Ned Price said, noting that the United States has “intelligence holdings” independent of any other entity’s investigation. “We will marry that with information that we develop in tandem with our partners. But again, we are in the early stages of this, and I wouldn’t want to get ahead or prejudge where that investigation may lead.”
The attack in Erbil on Monday reportedly injured five Americans, but the one civilian contractor killed in the assault was not a U.S. citizen. The assault immediately stoked speculation about how President Biden would respond, given that Trump’s administration carried out an airstrike killing Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani last year after a rocket attack from an Iraqi militia tied to Tehran left another U.S. contractor dead.
