A weak response to Iranian attacks

A weak response to Iranian attacks


The United States launched airstrikes Thursday evening against Iranian proxies, who have spent the past week attacking American forces in the Middle East. At least President Biden finally responded after more than a dozen provocations, but the administration still isn’t addressing the root cause of violence in the region: Iran.

The Pentagon says the United States struck two facilities in eastern Syria used by Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC). But the bombing of weapons and ammunition racks is not proportionate to enemy attacks. Iran’s proxies have launched rockets or drones at U.S. positions at least 19 times since October 17.
