  • Following the deaths of three US service personnel at a US base in Jordan, an attack claimed by an Iran-backed militia, the US has a difficult decision to take, but the president must retaliate in some form or another.

    Naturally, Republicans are calling Biden weak, but an attack on Iran would provoke a widespread war, so perhaps some surgical strikes on Iran militia bases in Iraq and Syria?

    Why and how are Iran-backed terrorists based in Iraq anyway?
