Dems Responds To Biden Action

Many on the left were not happy with how President Biden hardened the situation in Israel and voiced their displeasure; however, after what recently happened, they are furious.

The US and British forces bombed several sites used by the Iranian-backed Houthis in Yemen. It was a large retaliatory strike using warships, submarine-launched missiles, and fighter jets in response to the group’s attacked ships in the Red Sea.

From the Associated Press:

The U.S. Air Force’s Mideast command said it struck over 60 targets at 16 sites in Yemen, including “command-and-control nodes, munitions depots, launching systems, production facilities and air defense radar systems.”

President Joe Biden said the strikes were meant to demonstrate that the U.S. and its allies “will not tolerate” the militant group’s ceaseless attacks on the Red Sea. And he said they only made the move after attempts at diplomatic negotiations and careful deliberation.

Biden did not address the nation but did release a written statement:

“These strikes are in direct response to unprecedented Houthi attacks against international maritime vessels in the Red Sea — including the use of anti-ship ballistic missiles for the first time in history,” Biden said in the statement. “I will not hesitate to direct further measures to protect our people and the free flow of international commerce as necessary.”

The strike was carried out after the Houthi rebels fired what was called “their largest-ever barrage of drones and missiles” at merchant vessels.

Meanwhile, the left was furious that Biden conducted the airstrike and that he didn’t consult Congress first before authorizing the airstrike.
