Multiple Republican Senators Call to Attack Iran After Deadly Drone Strike on US Troops

Published on

Republican senators were enraged on Sunday following the revelation that a drone strike on a U.S. base in Jordan resulted in the deaths of three Americans and the injuries of over twenty-five others.

Sunday’s assault on the outpost designated Tower 22 occurred in northeast Jordan, in close proximity to the Syrian frontier. President Joe Biden attributed the assault to Iranian-backed extremists. As a consequence, demands arose for a robust reaction to target the origin of the assaults.

“Hit Iran now. Hit them hard,” Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina wrote on X.

“Secretary Austin’s efforts to deter aggression against our forces in the region has failed miserably. I’ve long since lost confidence in the Biden national security team to deter Iran. If they do not change their policies now, more American service members in the region will pay the price.”

“The only thing the Iranian regime understands is force. Until they pay a price with their infrastructure and their personnel, the attacks on U.S. troops will continue,” Graham wrote.

“The Biden Administration can take out all the Iranian proxies they like, but it will not deter Iranian aggression. I am calling on the Biden Administration to strike targets of significance inside Iran, not only as reprisal for the killing of our forces, but as deterrence against future aggression.”

In a statement to X, Republican Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas opined that Biden must cease his feeble reaction to Iran’s past actions.

“Joe Biden emboldened Iran for years by tolerating attacks on our troops, bribing the ayatollahs with billions of dollars, and appeasing them to no end. He left our troops as sitting ducks and now three are dead and dozens wounded, sadly as l’ve predicted would happen for months,” Cotton said in the statement.

His response would betray Biden, he said, branding him a “coward.”

“The only answer to these attacks must be devastating military retaliation against Iran’s terrorist forces, both in Iran and across the Middle East. Anything less will confirm Joe Biden as a coward unworthy of being commander-in-chief,” the statement said.

“On behalf of Arkansans, I extend my deepest condolence to the families of our brave fallen warriors. May God comfort them as He welcomes their loved ones into His embrace. And may God quickly and completely heal their wounded comrades.” CONTINUE READING…
