The hypocrisy never ends...

Here is some of his criticism against Trump...



Here is Jen Psaki's...




Biden and Jen Paski are accused of hypocrisy after old tweets slamming Trump's Middle East air strikes resurface following Syria bombing raid that 'killed 22'

26 February 2021
"The US dropped seven 500-pound precision-guided bombs that reportedly killed 22 Iran-backed militants smuggling weapons at a border crossing with Iraq"

And now Trump will praise Biden for his actions..

Call him a neocon if you like but the Trump comparison doesn't fit. Iran mortared US guys in Iraq (killing one) to pressure Biden to do something about the Sanctions that Trump reimposed to blow up (-: the nuclear deal. Biden intentionally targeted the same milita who attacked US guys, but chose a site not in either Iraq or Iran to retaliate but without escalating it further.
As President, I will use military power responsibly and as a last resort. We will not go back to forever wars in the Middle East. #DemDebate

There is arguably less of a reason today to attack Syria than there was during the Trump administration. Peace is at its greatest level in the Middle East than it has been in decades, especially as it pertains to American interests. These airstrikes may or may not have been necessary, but they’re definitely less necessary than the ones President Trump ordered. Nonetheless, we’re not seeing the pushback from the Biden-friendly media who attacked Trump for similar actions.
Biden didn't attack "syria." He ordered a retaliation against an Iranian milita that just killed an American and wounded others, four I think. They could be in Africa for all that it matters. They can't be in Iraq or Iran for obvious reasons.
>Biden didn't attack "syria."

Bombing Syrian soil is not attacking it, eh? Not a breach of their sovereignty? What you are arguing would only be true if they asked for US assistance. If we launched airstrikes on their sovereign soil, we attacked their country.

USA today says...

US bombs Syria facilities used by Iran-backed militia; first airstrikes under Biden

I will not be further participating in your silly nitpicking about choice of wording.

Enjoy your hypocrisy. You have plenty of good company.

It was a retaliatory strike on an Iranian backed militia that attacked the oil capital of the Kurdish Zone and killed an American. If Syria allows these typed of attacks on our allies and our people or are unwilling to take care of the problem, we damn sure reserve the right to take care of the threat ourselves. Erbil is the line in the sand.

Like when Obama order the incursion into Pakistan to kill Binny Boyo! If the sovereign can't take care of the threat to our allies, our people and our interests, we reserved the right to take care of it for them.

Oh Grandma, it's not a war. We're just not going to let Syria allow Iran to use it's soil to attack our allies, our people or our interest in the region. Do you back the Iranian/Syrian assault on Erbil, the oil Capital of the Kurdish Zone in Iraq, that killed a US citizen? Do you somehow think the USA doesn't have the right or responsibility to respond to Syrian aggression?

Why do you support Syrian aggression against the USA?

Is that how you justify another Democrat war for oil?

Like they just did.

BUT

We need to GTFO of the damn middle east.

What Biden did is the status QUO for all presidents including Trump.
As a nation we should ALL demand they stop this nonsense.

Bastards could barely wait a month to start a new war.



President Joe Biden ordered his first military airstrikes on Thursday, targeting “multiple facilities” used by by Iranian-backed militia groups in eastern Syria, according to the Pentagon.

The strikes were in response to recent attacks against American and U.S.-led Coalition personnel in Iraq and to “ongoing threats” to those personnel, Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby said in a statement Thursday evening.

“At President Biden’s direction, U.S. military forces earlier this evening conducted airstrikes against infrastructure utilized by Iranian-backed militant groups in eastern Syria,” Kirby said, adding:

These strikes were authorized in response to recent attacks against American and Coalition personnel in Iraq, and to ongoing threats to those personnel. Specifically, the strikes destroyed multiple facilities located at a border control point used by a number of Iranian-backed militant groups, including Kait’ib Hezbollah (KH) and Kait’ib Sayyid al-Shuhada (KSS).
Kirby said the “proportionate military response” was conducted together with diplomatic measures, including consultation with Coalition partners.

“The operation sends an unambiguous message: President Biden will act to protect American and Coalition personnel. At the same time, we have acted in a deliberate manner that aims to de-escalate the overall situation in both eastern Syria and Iraq,” Kirby said.

He characterized the airstrikes a “defensive precision strike.”

It is not yet clear if there were any casualties associated with the airstrikes. According to the Washington Post, the strike “was believed to have killed up to a handful of people.”
That’s so funny from the commie pro Russia party. He wouldn’t ha r had to do that If Donald didn’t kiss their butts
Really? Invoking Trump?

Get your fucking brain checked.

Just confirming you don't support America, or America protecting our people and our allies against aggression coming from the Syrian side of the Border, because well, Democrats!

What a piece of work you are.

We shouldn't be there for them to attack. Bidens hand is forced by the current situation. We need to change that situation.
Trump tried to draw down troops but met stiff opposition. Biden too should try.

This is the exact reason why I blame the lame Stream media for intentionally trying to incite a war -they are well versed on using shock and awe headline tactics and requires reading more sources to learn this was considered a a defensive posture. The media is playing it out to gain traction for their breaking story that the US initiated it without any prior attack -which wasn’t the case. It takes looking beyond what is superficially presented by the press that’s inclined to war monger to learn the truth.

I never claimed that Biden's attack on Syria was not justified; I don't know.

I'm just pointing out that Leftists are hypocrites again.

You took my post out of context, which was not implying if it was good or bad, it was explaining to BenDog that Biden attacked Syria, because he said we did not.

I fully support the US military using force, when necessary, against adversaries in order to protect and defend American troops and interests.

Okay I have no problem with saying that we shouldn't be there too, imo, but we are there and until that situation changes we have an obligation to protect our own. We're going to be there, in a bipartisan way, until the they runs out of cheap oil.
