A Middle East Action Plan for President Biden


Regarding your editorial “Biden faces Iranian reckoning” (October 12): I doubt it’s a coincidence that Russia invaded Ukraine and Hamas invaded Israel on President Biden’s watch. Evil dictators smell weakness like rats smell food. Mr. Biden’s kowtowing to Iran for nearly three years, including fattening its coffers with tens of billions from oil exports, has set the stage for Iran-funded Hamas to attack Israel. It should have been abundantly clear to the Biden administration that Ayatollah Ali Khamenei had no interest in a nuclear deal, but it continued to pursue one.
