Mad Bomber Joe Strikes Again

Awhile back, President Biden, responding to over 150 attacks on US troops defiling Iraq and Syria, advised he’d start bombing if any soldier was killed. Didn’t take long as within a few days three were blown up in Jordan near the Syrian border.

Friday Biden dropped over a hundred bombs on Shi’ite militias in Iraq and Syria. Saturday he launched his 12th bombing run on Houthi targets in Yemen in retaliation for the Houthi blockade of Red Sea shipping in support of Palestinians being ethnically destroyed by Israel in Gaza.

When not blasting away with bombs fired by US planes and drones, Biden is sending tens of thousands of bombs to Ukraine and Israel to fuel America’s failed proxy war on Russia in Ukraine, and assist Israel’s genocidal ethnic cleansing of 2,300,000 Palestinians in Gaza.

None of Biden’s bombs will stop Shi’ite groups in Iraq, Syria and Yemen from continuing their attacks on US forces stationed in counties which want them out. Saudi Arabia pounded Yemen with over 70,000 bombs between 2015 and 2022, but made no dent in Houthi resistance to the Saudis’ failed war with the Yemen Houthis.

It is near inevitable more US troops will die from sporadic Shi’ite attacks. It was also possible Biden’s senseless, futile bombing will trigger a regional war endangering all 45,400 US soldiers hunkered down in 10 Middle East countries.

Mad bomber Joe is demanding Congress grant him $61 billion more in WCD (Weapons of Civilian Destruction) to maintain his lost proxy war against Russia in Ukraine. He now wants another $14 billion in WCD for Israel to complete their utter destruction of Gaza.

America is inexorably being pushed out of the Middle East. It cannot come too soon. But Mad Bomber Joe will likely keep blasting away with bombs galore till his last day in the White House.
