Drone Attack: 3 American Troops Dead, 34 Wounded in Jordan

Well, now we have dead Americans.

I suspect there were others. There have been so many of these attacks. The US was likely covering up deaths. But now there are dead Americans in the news.

Iran clearly wants the war a lot more than the US does.

New York Post:

Three US service members were killed and 34 others wounded by Iran-backed militants in a drone attack Saturday night in Jordan — prompting President Biden to vow to respond to what were the first deaths of American troops by enemy fire in the Gaza war.

Saturday’s air assault was carried out against a small American outpost in Jordan near the Syrian border and marked the worst attack in the region since four US soldiers were killed by an ISIS bomb in 2019.

Biden on Sunday blasted the attack as “despicable and wholly unjust” — and warned, “We shall respond.”

US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin echoed the president’s warning.

The President and I will not tolerate attacks on American forces, and we will take all necessary actions to defend the United States, our troops and our interests,” he said in a statement.

Biden said in an earlier release from the White House, “While we are still gathering the facts of this attack, we know it was carried out by radical Iran-backed militant groups operating in Syria and Iran.

“The three American service members we lost were patriots in the highest sense,” he said. “ We will carry on their commitment to fight terrorism. And have no doubt — we will hold all those responsible to account at a time and in a manner [of] our choosing.”

The president later reiterated his vow to retaliate against the terrorists, telling supporters at a campaign rally at a church in South Carolina, “We had a tough day in the Middle East.

“We lost three brave souls,” Biden said.

We shall respond.”

Shut up, gay.

What are you going to do?

Start a war with Iran?

Yeah, I guess that’s what they’ll probably do.

At least the Ukraine war is over though.

Probably.

It doesn’t really even matter.

You will witness the last gasps of a dying empire.

Then things will get better.
