Well, that was unexpected!
… Or was it, given Hunter’s recent Capitol crashing stunt?
After all, the President clearly needed something to distract from that circus, and launching a bunch of missiles in the Middle East, seemingly out of nowhere and without warning, is one way to do so.
Indeed, the United States, acting jointly with the United Kingdom, Netherlands, Australia, Bahrain, and others, has commenced missile strikes on Houthi targets, after the Iran-backed terrorists continued to launch attacks on US and UK military interests in the Red Sea.
And while the Dems are currently outraged about Biden daring to take a stand against terrorists, more than one Republican welcomes the United States actually defending itself and its allies.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell
“I welcome the U.S. and coalition operations against the Iran-backed Houthi terrorists responsible for violently disrupting international commerce in the Red Sea and attacking American vessels. President Biden’s decision to use military force against these Iranian proxies is overdue,” McConnell boomed.
Indeed, the response is quite “overdue,” and its delay was likely influenced by absurd, radical Democrat pressure.
“I am hopeful these operations mark an enduring shift in the Biden Administration’s approach to Iran and its proxies. To restore deterrence and change Iran’s calculus, Iranian leaders themselves must believe that they will pay a meaningful price unless they abandon their worldwide campaign of terror,” McConnell continued.
Americans are also “hopeful” that Biden will not enter into any more absurd deals, a la Obama, with Iran, that clearly endowed the pro-terrorist, anti-American regime with billion to spend on terrorism in the first place.
House Foreign Affairs Committee Chair Mike McCaul also praised the American response to continued terrorist attacks on its interests, and its allies’ interests, abroad.
“I’m pleased the president, in coordination with our allies, finally took action against the Iran-backed Houthis following weeks of instability in the Red Sea. Tonight, with these strikes, we are beginning to restore deterrence. The administration must acknowledge it was a mistake to rescind the Houthis designation as a Foreign Terrorist Organization, and re-list them immediately,” McCaul proclaimed.
Indeed. Redesignate the much-needed terrorist label for the group, ASAP, no matter how loudly the snowflakes whine about it.
Republican Senator Roger Wicker also chimed in, noting that the Biden administration, for once, followed advice that was actually worth following, even if doing so conveniently distracts from Hunter’s antics.
“I appreciate that the administration took the advice of our regional commanders and targeted critical nodes within Houthi-controlled Yemeni territory. It is important that we follow this action in close consultation with our Saudi partners to ensure they are with us as the situation develops,” Wicker noted.
Unlike the Trump administration, the Biden administration has succeeded in alienating some of the United States’ closest allies in the Middle East, in particular Israel, through the virulent commentary of varied “Squad” members and other pro-terrorist Democrats.
Biden cozying up to Iran has also inflamed the Saudis, who deal with ongoing security threats from the Iran-backed Houthis in Yemen.
Thus, Biden’s missile move not only affirmed America’s willingness to defend itself, but also the interests of its carefully constructed allyships.
Republican Senator Lindsey Graham certainly believes it has been “long past time” to hold Iran and its terrorist backing accountable.
“It’s long past time to let Iran know that we will hold them accountable for the actions of their proxies – in this case, the Houthi rebels. The only language radical Islamic groups understand is force. I hope the Biden Administration understands that their deterrence policy has completely failed,” Graham declared.
Of course, whatever the Republicans love, the Democrats must hate, especially when it comes to national security.
Hilariously, the Democrats have also incorrectly cited legislation while doing so.
“The President needs to come to Congress before launching a strike against the Houthis in Yemen and involving us in another Middle East conflict … That is Article I of Pro-terrorist Representative Rashida Tlaib also hilariously, and incorrectly, invoked the Constitution when ranting about Biden’s missile strikes.
“@POTUS is violating Article I of the Constitution by carrying out airstrikes in Yemen without congressional approval. The American people are tired of endless war,” Tlaib tweeted.
However, X users promptly corrected Tlaib.
“This is false. The President has the power to use the armed forces in response to an attack on the armed forces. Houthis launched a missile attack against US and UK ships. The Congressional Authorization for Use of Military Force of 2001 is still in force,” X users wrote.
Gotta love the fact that Democrats are so lawless that they can’t even cite legislation effectively when attempting to argue in their own (deranged) favor.
