While we’re waiting for a Covid relief package to come out of a Congress controlled by the President’s Party, we are already bombing Syria and we’re not even two months into this administration.
What is it about Democrats love for bombs?
When it was Trump bombing Syria, the current Biden spokeswoman Jen Psaki tweeted,“What is the legal authority for strikes? Assad is a brutal dictator. But Syria is a sovereign country.”
For the Biden administration, national sovereignty is an issue only when Trump does the bombing.
This time, Assad wasn’t the excuse.
The administration said the rockets were aimed at a small Shia group calling itself Saraya Awliya al-Dam.
This can only be seen as sending a message to somebody. But there apparently was a body count to this message.
The Biden administration says it plans to return to the 2015 Iran nuclear deal and back away from its predeccesor’s war-mongering approach.
Ironically, the administration has said the bombing of Syria is intended to de-escalate tensions in advance of returning to talks with Iran.
What am I missing here?
So, in the mean we are waiting for the Democrats to deliver a Covid relief package and vaccinations to become more available.
And $15 an hour minimum wage has been ruled out of order by the Senate parliamentarian.
We need to get our priorities straight.
