Iran Attacks Israel Because Biden Fed The Alligator. Trump Would Have Crushed It.

Over the weekend, the Islamic Republic of Iran essentially entered a war directly with the state of Israel. There’s no other way to put it. When you fire 170 drones, 30 cruise missiles, and 120 ballistic missiles at another sovereign nation, you are now in a state of war.

This has been a long time coming. The Islamic Republic of Iran has been using all of its proxy terror groups to attack Israel repeatedly for decades at this point, from Hezbollah in the north of Israel, to Hamas in the south of Israel, to the current attacks from the Houthis in Yemen.

The whole conflict started on October 7 with the Hamas massacre because Iran was deeply afraid that Israel was about to sign a new Abraham Accord with the Saudi government. Everyone was openly discussing it, and that would have solidified a Sunni-Israeli pact against Shia aggression in the Middle East. Iran then would have effectively been boxed in because the reality is that an American-backed Sunni-Israeli alliance would be extraordinarily powerful in the region. It would be a massive counterweight to terror groups in Yemen and Hezbollah and Hamas and Iran itself. Iran was feeling quite boxed in.

So Iran activated the October 7 massacre through General Mohammad Reza Zahedi, the head of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps and its terror operations in Syria, Lebanon, and via Hamas. They greenlit the October 7 attacks that killed 1,200 Israelis and took 250 hostage, with 133 Israelis still missing and most presumed dead.

That was specifically designed in order to elicit a military response from Israel that would supposedly put the nascent Sunni-Israeli alliance on hold. The entire goal was to reorient the Middle East. The Biden administration, acting as cowards, decided to go along with that instead of doing what they should have done: Tell Israel to finish off Hamas and take that Iranian pawn off the board. And if Israel needed to make a move against Hezbollah in the north, which had been threatening Israel for years, then do that as well — because only strength works in the Middle East.

No American troops needed to be involved.

Instead, over time, the Biden administration began to put more and more shackles on the Israeli Defense Force regarding Israel’s attempt to extirpate Hamas and also to counter Hezbollah.

The reason the latest attack happened is because Iran saw the gap. Israel took out the general who had greenlit the October 7 attacks, and Iran was faced with this geopolitical prospect: It would be seen as weak by its own people for not responding to Israel taking out General Mohammad Reza Zahedi in Syria.

They couldn’t be seen to look weak in the face of this.

The problem they had is they weren’t sure just how far they could go in attacking Israel without the United States either directly responding or unshackling Israel. That was their catch-22. They needed to do something in response to the killing of General Mohammad Reza Zahedi, but the response could not be strong enough to elicit a full-scale military response from Israel greenlit by the United States. 

So what did they do? 

It sounds very much as though the United States was approached via channels by the Iranians. And the Iranians basically said, we’re going to do something and we want to make sure what we do is not enough for you to take the chains off of Israel.

The Jerusalem Post stated in a stunning report that Iran apparently informed Turkey in advance of its planned operation against Israel. Washington had then responded to Tehran via Ankara that any action it took had to be within certain limits.

That’s a betrayal of an American ally.

The reason Biden would do that is because he knew Iran had to show its own people it was going to stand up muscularly against the “evil Zionist regime,” and at the same time, Biden did not want this escalating into a full-scale Israeli retaliation. And so the happy medium for him was to greenlight an attack that would cost America billions of dollars in military resources, allow Iran to get away with a massive missile and drone attack on an actual sovereign country, and then tell Israel to stand down.

So it appears the Biden administration effectively brokered this attack, which makes sense. Biden is now playing both sides of the aisle.

Biden said that Donald Trump would get America into a war with Iran. Now the United States is having to use its materiel to shoot down actual ordnance from Iran. That is because Biden is a weakling. It is because his foreign policy on the Middle East is idiotic. The only thing that works in the Middle East is a perception of actual force.

You know what would have happened if Trump had been president and Iran had approached and said, “We want to issue a limited attack on your ally Israel. So what do we greenlight?”

Trump would have said, “I will kick you’re a** if you do that.”

Foreign policy is a fifth-grade schoolyard. Whoever is the biggest bully on the block gets to call the rules.

There is no sovereign state on planet Earth that should be told by America that it cannot defend itself against a state that just fired 120 ballistic missiles at it. That’s insane. But that’s exactly the position of the Biden administration.

Trump always opted for a different route: If you screw with the United States or our allies, we will intimidate you.

And you know what? It made for a pretty damn safe world under Donald Trump.

Joe Biden’s idea has been to feed the alligator and maybe it will be nice to you.
