Opinion | A Weak Response to Iran’s Attacks

Date:

Share:


The U.S. late Thursday launched air strikes on Iranian proxies, which have spent the past week attacking American forces in the Middle East. At least President Biden finally responded after more than a dozen provocations, but the Administration still isn’t grappling with the root cause of the region’s violence: Iran.

The Pentagon says the U.S. hit two facilities in eastern Syria that are used by Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC). But pinprick bombing of weapons and ammo lockers aren’t proportionate to the enemy attacks. Iran’s proxies have lobbed rockets or drones at U.S. positions at least 19 times since Oct. 17.
