Missiles LAUNCHED – Biden Gives the Order!
(UnitedVoice.com) – President Joe Biden authorized strikes on strategic targets inside Syria this week after militants linked to the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corp (IRGC) targeted a remote base on the borders of Iraq, Syria, and Jordan with a drone strike. According to Central Command Colonel Joe Buccino, the president’s response was swift, effective, and appropriate.
The attack on the base at Al-Tanf went nowhere, as two unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) exploded without incident. US forces intercepted one, and the other landed in a neighboring camp staffed by US regional allies and detonated without causing any damage. While the strike was unsuccessful, the response was tactically effective.

Eight US fighter jets targeted nine sites in Syria of tactical importance to the enemy. Military installations and ammunition depots topped the list of targets.
Iran directly denied any involvement with facilities hit by American warplanes. According to Reuters, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Nasser Kanaani said the attack was an assault on Syria’s sovereignty. Iranian extremists gained a stronghold in Syria when they showed up in support of President Bashar al-Assad’s civil war. White House Spokesman John Kirby told reporters the US isn’t interested in escalating the conflict further, echoing Col. Buccino’s statements.
