Biden’s declaration of war backfires on him in a big way

Joe Biden swears America is safer than ever. That couldn’t be further from the truth.

Because Biden’s declaration of war has backfired on him and America in a big way.

After the Hamas attack on Israel on October 7, whatever stability the Middle Eastern nations and societies had would soon be thrown out the window.

Despite what the Leftists would have you believe, this isn’t just a case of Hamas attacking Israel and Israel needing to respond “proportionately.”

Of course, when they say that, they mean that they don’t want Hamas to face any consequences for their actions whatsoever, but that’s besides the point.

The real point is that Israel is now in a conflict with not only Hamas, but also Hamas-supporting nations in the region like Iran.

And given the recent negotiations that the United States has had with Iran and given that Israel is a close ally of the U.S., a major decision had to be made about what to do about the destabilization of the Middle East.

The decision the Joe Biden administration made has been to effectively launch a second proxy war against Hamas and anyone else that may be involved in the war against Israel, which includes Iran.

Joe Biden was likely hoping this would be a quick affair, much like when he and his fellow Democrat lackeys said that the Ukraine-Russia conflict would be over in just a matter of months not years. We all know how wrong he was on that front.

Now it appears he was dead wrong about the conflict in the Middle East as well. Iran is digging in their heels and preparing for a long war against the U.S. and any other western allies.

The Houthis, who are backed by Iran, have promised to keep attacking ships in the Red Sea even though Western forces have warned them that they will oppose them.

The Houthis, who are based in Yemen, have attacked Western vessels multiple times since October 7 – including U.S. Navy ships – causing at least ten shipping companies to cease business in the Red Sea region. The Washington Post reports that the Houthis have stated that they have no intention of stopping their attacks, in spite of the Biden administration’s Monday commitment to cooperate with Western allies in order to counter the aggression of the Houthis.

An official from the Houthi party, Mohammed Abdulsalam, informed Reuters on Monday that the formation of a naval alliance would have no effect on the group’s stance on the Palestinian issue. “Our position in support of Palestine and the Gaza Strip will remain until the end of the siege, the entry of food and medicine, and our support for the oppressed Palestinian people will remain continuous.”

Members of the Houthi ruling council, including Mohammed Albukhaiti, expressed their disapproval of the ‘Alliance of Shame’ nations’ (referring to the U.S. and her allies) backing of Israel’s atrocities in Gaza, stating that it was a dark spot in their history and a recipe for further conflict and danger to shipping lines.

On Monday, U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin announced that the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, and many other European Union (E.U.) governments will endeavor to discourage the Houthi alliance from launching future strikes. The Houthis have taken control of regional maritime vessels and attacked Israel, whom they perceive as an enemy, using missiles and drones in the Red Sea.

“This is an international challenge that demands collective action,” Austin shared with reporters this week.

“The recent escalation in reckless Houthi attacks originating from Yemen threatens the free flow of commerce, endangers innocent mariners, and violates international law.”

The Biden administration de-listed the Houthis from the Foreign Terrorist Organization in 2021, despite the fact that many Western partners consider the group to be a terrorist organization. The humanitarian effects on Yemen were considered by the administration as a reason to revoke the designation.
