President Biden tells his top military general to prepare for war

Joe Biden said there’d be no new wars on his watch. But that was a total lie.

Because President Biden just told his top military general to prepare for war.

Back on the 2020 campaign trail, one of the big promises Joe Biden made was that he would keep the United States out of wasteful wars that only serve to prop up the military industrial complex and cause mayhem all across the globe.

He likely picked up that this promise was a popular one from Donald Trump, who truly did follow through with that promise. Donald Trump ended wars, didn’t start them, and wiped out terrorists on our way out of Middle Eastern involvement. Even Joe Biden himself conceded that Trump handled ISIS beautifully!

But the difference between Joe Biden and Donald Trump on this issue is that, as president, Joe Biden has not actually been keeping the United States out of new war efforts at all. If anything, he’s fanning the flames of war in multiple regions like Ukraine and the Middle East.

Hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars are being rerouted out of the United States and into the hands of the Ukrainian government and the Israeli government for their defensive war efforts. Sure, Ukraine and Israel have a right to defend themselves against the horrible people who want to wipe them off the face of the planet. But Joe Biden’s going back on his promise to do so, which doesn’t sit well with the American people.

And if you thought that it was just some taxpayer dollars and some military equipment going overseas, you’re wrong. Joe Biden is sending one of his top U.S. generals to Israel to help them prepare for a retaliation from terrorists.

On Thursday, a senior U.S. general is scheduled to visit Israel to collaborate on defense strategies amid growing concerns of a potential attack from Iran, as per Axios.

Last week, Israel conducted precise airstrikes on an Iranian diplomatic facility in Damascus, Syria, resulting in the elimination of numerous members of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), including a key general from the Quds Force.

In response, Iran has vowed retaliation against Israel, although the specifics of Tehran’s plans remain undisclosed. In preparation for potential defensive measures, the United States has been assisting Israel, according to reports from Axios, citing sources from both countries.

Gen. Erik Kurilla, who heads the U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM), is anticipated to engage in discussions with senior officials from the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) and Defense Minister Yoav Gallant. Earlier in the week, Gallant held talks with U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, while Israeli Minister of Strategic Affairs Ron Dermer separately conferred with Secretary of State Antony Blinken.

Iran possesses the option of leveraging its proxy forces across the Middle East to target Israel indirectly, thereby avoiding direct engagement. Since Hamas’ incursion into Israel on October 7, leading to the loss of over 1,200 civilian lives and subsequent Israeli reprisals, Iran has relied on these proxies to mount attacks against U.S., Israeli, and Western interests throughout the region.

Alternatively, Iran could opt for a direct assault on Israel by utilizing its own military capabilities, a course of action it seldom pursues. According to Axios, if Iran were to choose this path, Israel stands prepared to retaliate with its own military response.

Axios also reports that Israel has requested U.S. support in dissuading Tehran from hostile actions, both publicly and through diplomatic channels. Additionally, joint air and missile exercises are currently underway in the Israeli region as part of preparations for a potential Iranian offensive.

During a joint press conference with Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida, President Joe Biden reiterated the United States’ steadfast commitment to Israel’s security, cautioning Iran against any escalatory actions.

“As I told Prime Minister Netanyahu, our commitment to Israel’s security against these threats from Iran and its proxies is iron clad,” President Biden said at the press conference to reporters.

Initially, Joe Biden was enjoying favorability on the Israel-Hamas conflict. That favorability is all but gone now as his own base and his critics are tired of his incompetency, though for different reasons.

According to the latest polls, Joe Biden’s approval ratings on the Israel-Hamas conflict are underwater by about ten points as his disapproval has grown steadily over the past several weeks.
