What a difference a year makes… especially if you’re the president NOW. From one year ago.
If you don’t remember, I wrote about a little problem with Syria when Biden was still Obama’s vice president. It was after Trump was elected. You can find it here: https://brooklynculturejammers.com/2016/11/30/turkey-invades-syria/
You might want to also look at the work people of both parties have undertaken to appropriate Syria’s Golan Heights, a new center of oil production. Israel ‘conquered’ the Heights and beginning under Obama, began parceling out the oil to an American company called Genie Petroleum. Syria vehemently objects to this–it’s their land and their oil. And Russia is not the only country to agree with this point of view. Meanwhile, the oligarchs of the world have been divvying up the Golan.
The US raids were against Iran-sourced militia who had set off rocket strikes on American forces in Iraq. https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/biden-airstrikes-syria-retaliating-against-iran-backed-militias-n1258912. However, The Biden-authorized bombing mission over Syria is technically not legal, since he had no congressional authorization. But more than that, it took more than a few of his voters by surprise. It also reminds many of us about a 2016 promise from Hillary that probably didn’t get her any votes:
Funny how this is part of the Biden Agenda, but was somehow never mentioned in the campaign. Are we really primed to go to war against Iran and Syria?
