Antony Blinken made a war announcement that left Americans completely dumbfounded

Joe Biden and his cabinet have plunged this great nation into darkness. And it’s only going to get worse before it gets better.

And now Antony Blinken made a war announcement that left Americans completely dumbfounded.

Our friends are few and far between on the world stage nowadays.

All Biden has done is destroy our credibility internationally with moronic withdrawals and proxy wars that never end.

Now he’s throwing one of our allies to the curb because he feels bad for the terrorists.

Secretary of State Antony Blinken issued one of the Biden administration’s harshest public criticisms of Israel on Sunday during the country’s conflict with Hamas in Gaza.

During a pair of TV interviews, Blinken stated that the U.S. wants Israeli forces to “get out of Gaza” following what he described as “a horrible loss of life of innocent civilians.”

He also stated that Israel’s military tactics have failed to neutralize Hamas and may result in a power “vacuum” in Palestinian territories.

When asked about the U.S. withholding high payload bombs to Israel, America’s ally, Blinken said: “We believe two things. One, you have to have a clear, credible plan to protect civilians, which we haven’t seen. Second, we also need to see a plan for what happens after this conflict in Gaza is over. And we still haven’t seen that because what are we seeing right now? We’re seeing parts of Gaza that Israel has cleared of Hamas, where Hamas is coming back, including in the north, including in Khan Younis.”

He added: “As we look at Rafah, they may go in and have some initial success, but potentially at an incredibly high cost to civilians, but one that is not durable, one that’s not sustainable. And they will be left holding the bag on an enduring insurgency because a lot of armed Hamas will be left, no matter what they do in Rafah, or if they leave and get out of Gaza, as we believe they need to do. Then you’re going to have a vacuum and a vacuum that’s likely to be filled by chaos, by anarchy, and ultimately by Hamas again.”

The statements were made during an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation.

Blinken also appeared on NBC’s Meet the Press, where he restated, for the first time publicly by a U.S. official, the findings of a new Biden administration report to Congress on Friday, which stated that Israel’s use of U.S.-supplied munitions in Gaza likely violated international humanitarian law.

“When it comes to the use of weapons, concerns about incidents where given the totality of the damage that’s been done to children, women, men, it was reasonable to assess that, in certain instances, Israel acted in ways that are not consistent with international humanitarian law,” Blinken said, condemning “the horrible loss of life of innocent civilians.”

“We treat Israel, one of our closest allies and partners, just as we would treat any other country, including in assessing something like international humanitarian law and its compliance with that,” he said.

Despite the apparent shift in tone, Blinken lauded President Biden’s support for Israel, adding “no one has done more than Biden.”

“No one has done more to defend Israel when it mattered than President Biden,” the Secretary of State stated.

“He was there in the days after October 7th, the first president to go to Israel in the midst of a conflict when Iran mounted an unprecedented attack on Israel. Some weeks ago, 300 projectiles, including ballistic missiles, launched in Israel. The United States, for the first time ever, participated in its act of defense, and President Biden brought together a coalition of countries that helped defend Israel.”

According to the State Department’s account of the discussion, Blinken talked with Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant on Sunday and reiterated the U.S. opposition to Israel’s offensive in Rafah, citing the toll on civilians.

He said the U.S. continues to work with Arab countries and others for weeks on developing “credible plans for security, for governance, for rebuilding” in Gaza, but “we haven’t seen that come from Israel. … We need to see that, too.”
