During the Trump administration, the United States saw a decrease in global conflict. The former president was able to spread peace, even to unlikely enemies. That has not been the case under President Joe Biden.
Since entering office, Biden has presided over the fall of Afghanistan, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, and a war between Israel and Hamas.
Tensions have been rising in the Middle East, with Iran-backed entities firing relentlessly against American ships. Now, a deadly attack has struck an American base. And service members were killed.
From Fox News:
Three U.S. service members were killed and at least 25 others were injured in a drone attack on an outpost in northeast Jordan near the Syrian border…
But a senior U.S. defense official told Fox News the injury toll could rise to higher than 25 Americans.
According to some reports, an Iranian-backed group launched a drone attack against American forces in Northern Jordan. The attack took the lives of three American service members and injured at least 25 more. The injury toll could end up being higher than 25, according to the Pentagon.
This is the latest attack against U.S. forces in the Middle East since the start of the Israel-Hamas War. Various radical groups have been targeting U.S. military bases and ships. Experts claim these groups are being backed by Iran, the largest state funder of terrorism in the region.
Soon after word spread that American lives were lost, former President Trump issued a blistering statement.
“The drone attack on a U.S. Military Installation in Jordan, killing 3 American Servicemembers, and wounding many more, marks a horrible day for America. My most profound sympathies go to the Families of the Brave Servicemembers we have lost. I ask all Americans to join me in praying for those who have been wounded,” Trump posted on Truth Social…
“This brazen attack on the United States is yet another horrific and tragic consequence of Joe Biden’s weakness and surrender,” Trump said.
Trump issued condolences for the lives lost in the attack, calling it a “horrible day for America.” He went on to criticize Joe Biden’s “weakness and surrender” as the cause of these escalating attacks.
Critics have blamed Biden for the increased conflict across the world. President Biden’s foreign policy has failed to achieve peace internationally. He seemed entirely set on increasing conflict by arming Ukraine against Russia and sending ships to the Middle East.
He has struggled to secure a lasting agreement with Iran that would prevent the rogue nation from acquiring weapons of mass destruction. Many fear what Iran will do next in the region.
