American F15 Eagle multi-role strike fighters screamed through the night into Syrian airspace on airstrike orders from the Biden-Harris regime. Biden has decided to risk a WWIII level conflict by wasting no time resuming Obama’s proxy war with Russia. The target was a long known, Iranian militia base near the Eastern Syrian city of Al Bukamal.
This move from Biden could place the historic peace of the Abraham Accords at risk. The accords were the most impressive step toward peace in the Middle East since the First World War and the crowning diplomatic achievement of President Trump’s administration. The United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Morocco and Sudan officially recognized and made peace with Israel in the landmark agreement.
Fox News reported,
“In the first known military action by President Biden, multiple facilities were struck by American F15 fighter jets that targeted Iraqi border-based Shia militia groups, Kait’ib Hezbollah and Kait’ib Sayyid al Shuhada.
Both forces are suspected of having received funding and military support from Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard.”
Why Would Biden Airstrike Syria?
Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby said Thursday. “These strikes were authorized in response to recent attacks against American and coalition personnel in Iraq, and to ongoing threats to those personnel,” “At the same time, we have acted in a deliberate manner that aims to de-escalate the overall situation in both eastern Syria and Iraq,” he added according to the Conservative Opinion.
Fox News wrote that,
“Two rockets landed within the U.S.’s Green Zone in Baghdad Monday, falling near the U.S. embassy and marking the third attack of its kind within a week.
Though Monday’s strike reported no casualties, a rocket fired in Erbil, Iraq last week killed several people; an American service member and multiple American contractors were injured.”
State Department spokesman Ned Price told the Press. “We are outraged by the recent attacks. When it comes to our response, we will respond in a way that is calculated, within our own timetable, and using a mix of tools at a time and place of our choosing,” he added on Monday, prior to the strike.
“What will not do is lash out and risk an escalation that plays into the hands of Iran and contributes to their attempts to further destabilize Iraq.”

A Strategic Airstrike Target (That has been hit often)
The Al Bukamal base was previously bombed in 2019 and again in 2020 according to the Jerusalem Post and the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, at the time the US Military denied responsibility, although it was suspected by many sources to be a black-op by US and/or Israeli forces. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reports that 22 members of Iraqi militias were killed according to sources in Syria, however, conflicting reports from Iran’s IRIB news said 17 “resistance fighters” were killed but didn’t provide a source.
The Jerusalem Post explained the strategic significance of the area in 2019,
“Al Bukamal was occupied by ISIS from 2014 to 2017 and has only recently been fully cleared of ISIS threats while the Syrian regime and Iraqi army seek to rehabilitate the area. It is a strategic crossroads between Iraq and Syria and is near US forces and the Syrian Democratic Forces that control the area north of the Euphrates, north of Al Bukamal.”
Biden’s Tweets about Trump’s Airstrikes Didn’t Age Well.
Biden-Harris and even Press Secretary Psaki have found themselves under massive pressure from both the left and right for several tweets and press statements during the Trump administration that truly haven’t aged well. Several outlets are accusing Biden of hypocrisy and contrary to the State department’s statement, a clear escalation that risks antagonizing Syria’s long-time allies and patrons in Moscow.
Let's be clear: Donald Trump does not have the authority to take us into war with Iran without Congressional approval. A president should never take this nation to war without the informed consent of the American people.

Trump’s erratic, impulsive actions are the last thing we need as Commander-in-Chief. No president should order a military strike without fully understanding the consequences. We don’t need another war in the Middle East, but Trump’s actions toward Iran only make that more likely.

Biden-Harris Antagonizing Russia Recklessly
Russia’s foreign minister Sergey Lavrov was quick to condemn the airstrike while attending a conference in Afghanistan this week. “They continue to play the separatist card, continue to block the supply of goods to government-controlled territories, and encourage their allies to invest in territories not controlled by Damascus,” he said according to Anadolu Agency.
“At the same time, they illegally exploit the hydrocarbon resources of the territory of Syria.”
Lavrov voiced concerns over alleged US plans to stay in Syria “forever,” saying Moscow wants the Biden administration to clarify its strategy in Syria.
“We hear reports that they are making a decision to never leave Syria at all and want to break up this country. We want to ask them directly” about this, he said. “It is important for us to understand how they will build their line on the ground, given the fact that they voted in the UN Security Council to preserve Syria’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.”
The Washington Post wrote, “Russia was given about four to five minutes warning of the Biden administration’s first military action when it struck Iranian-backed militias in eastern Syria early Friday, according to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov. But he said the warning came too late to reduce the risk of a potential clash between the two country’s forces.”
All About the Pipelines?
There have been no reports of Russian casualties in the airstrike as of yet. However, it is clear that Moscow is alarmed by this hawkish stance from the Biden-Harris regime and a return to American interventionism in the Middle East. This could be interpreted as Biden working toward an ouster of Putin-backed, Syrian President Bashar Al Assad once again as Obama failed to accomplish.
The Russian foreign ministry also continued to paint American involvement in Syria as being driven purely by the potential gains from the proposed Qatar-Turkey pipeline which would threaten Russian firm Gazprom’s dominance in the European energy market.

It’s a popular theory, that rings true and shows an even more staggering level of environmental hypocrisy, as the Biden admin torched the Keystone XL pipeline, yet seems willing to drop bombs to secure the Qatar-Turkey Pipeline as Jack Posobiec alluded to.
