Biden Vows To Avenge Killing of Three US Troops In Iran-Backed Strike

President Joe Biden vowed on Sunday to avenge the killing of three American soldiers in an Iran-backed strike in northeast Jordan.

“America’s heart is heavy. Last night, three U.S. service members were killed—and many wounded—during an unmanned aerial drone attack on our forces stationed in northeast Jordan near the Syria border,” Biden said in a statement.

“While we are still gathering the facts of this attack, we know it was carried out by radical Iran-backed militant groups operating in Syria and Iraq,” he continued. “These service members embodied the very best of our nation: Unwavering in their bravery. Unflinching in their duty. Unbending in their commitment to our country—risking their own safety for the safety of their fellow Americans, and our allies and partners with whom we stand in the fight against terrorism. It is a fight we will not cease …

“And have no doubt—we will hold all those responsible to account at a time and in a manner our choosing,” added the president.

The incident marked the first time that U.S. troops have been killed in increasingly frequent attacks in the Middle East since Hamas ignited a war against Israel with the Oct. 7 massacre of 1,200 people.

Pro-Iranian militias have targeted American bases in Syria and Iraq well over 100 times since then, according to U.S. sources, injuring scores of troops.

In response, the U.S. military has repeatedly conducted airstrikes targeting Iranian-aligned terror assets in Iraq and Syria.

“These strikes are intended to hold accountable those elements directly responsible for attacks on coalition forces… and degrade their ability to continue attacks. We will always protect our forces,” said CENTCOM Commander Gen. Michael Erik Kurilla last month.

U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin previously stressed that Washington “does not seek conflict and has no intention nor desire to engage in further hostilities, but these Iranian-backed attacks against U.S. forces are unacceptable and must stop.”

He went on to state that “Iran wants to hide its hand and deny its role in these attacks against our forces. We will not let them. If attacks by Iran’s proxies against U.S. forces continue, we will not hesitate to take further necessary measures to protect our people.”

The U.S. has also launched a multinational force to counter the maritime threat posed by Iran-backed Houthi terrorists in Yemen. JNS

  1. Why dont you start by freezing the billions of US taxpayer dollars that are being sent to Iran. Money talks! They need to be defunded!!

  2. Uh oh. Shots fired. Biden is one tough cookie. He never backs away from a fight. Joe is as tough as nails. All those years of him fighting in the killing fields of Vietnam and Cambodia are paying off big time now. We shared a bunker together.
