As suffering in Gaza continues and Palestinian children and other civilians die by the thousands, the Biden Regime is ramping up US involvement in the Middle East, harkening back to the “war on terror” foreign policy that got thousands of Americans killed and ultimately turned the region over to the very terrorists the war was named for. On Thursday, Biden ordered strikes on more than a dozen targets controlled by the Houthis of Yemen, a group backed by Iran that’s been launching futile drone and missile strikes against Israel and harassing military and commercial targets alike in the Red Sea.
Five people were killed and six wounded when joint American and British strikes hit at least a dozen Houthi targets on Thursday, in just the latest Biden Regime escalation of US involvement in the conflict-ridden Middle East. Nevertheless, the Houthis have vowed to continue their campaign and, therefore, an American military response is expected to continue and potentially escalate.
The Thursday strikes already marked an escalation from previous US counter-Houthi operations amid the conflict in Israel and Gaza, which had previously consisted mostly of intercepting Houthi missiles and drones.
For years, American and Israeli proxy armies have battled the Iranian-backed Houthis, and now, the militant group that controls sections of Yemen says that it’s at war with the “Zionist Entity” of Israel and its allies until Israel ends its military campaign in Gaza.
But aside from smacking down low-grade attack attempts from the Houthis, the American strikes could serve a broader purpose for the forever war lobby that dominates America’s government and closely aligns itself with the State of Israel.
Since the immediate aftermath of the October 7th Hamas attacks in Israel, American neo-cons have been calling for the expansion of the war to include Iran, and haven’t been shy about promising American support, be it financial, physical, or a combination thereof, should their fantasy war come to fruition.
And if it does, Gaza will almost surely be leveled in the chaos, and the West will be inevitably faced with yet another massive, engineered refugee crisis made up not just of Palestinians, but of those from the likes of the entire region.
Though the American and British strikes on Yemen were done publicly, there’s been widespread speculation that a serious covert attack was carried out not on an Iranian proxy, but on Iran itself, when a memorial service at the tomb of Iranian General Qasem Soleimani, who was killed in a Trump-ordered drone strike, came under attack, killing and wounding hundreds.
After the attack, Israel’s Mossad intelligence and covert operations service trended on Twitter.
When the Islamic State ultimately took credit for the bombing, speculation that Israel, the United States, or both, were involved in the attack only grew, as both nations have been well known to work with terror groups in the region.
