Well, now we know why congressional Democrats want China Joe to relinquish control of the nuclear codes. – Four years of peace was just too much for Democrat voters and our corrupt news media to stand, so they did everything they could to ensure that life-long warmonger China Joe Biden was installed into the presidency. Last night, the fruits of their votes and constant propaganda operation against peacemaker Donald J. Trump paid off with the bombing of sites in Syria without any prior notice to congress or the American people, and, at least as of this writing early Friday morning, no White House or presidential statement afterwards attempting to justify this unilateral action.
None. Zip, Zero, Nada.
A Pentagon spokesman did issue a statement, but so far from our sock puppet president, bupkis.
From a story at the New York Post:
The US on Thursday launched an airstrike in Syria that targeted facilities used by Iran-backed militia groups — the first military action taken by the Biden administration, officials said.
The Pentagon said the strike was in retaliation for a Feb. 15 rocket attack against a US military base at Erbil International Airport in Northern Iraq that killed a US-led coalition contractor and left others wounded, including an American service member.
“I’m confident in the target that we went after, we know what we hit,” Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin told reporters after the airstrike.
“We’re confident that that target was being used by the same Shia militants that conducted the [Feb. 15] strikes,” he said.
Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said the attack “destroyed multiple facilities at a border control point used by a number of Iranian- backed militant groups.”
Four years ago, then-President Trump made the mistake of assuming his military and national security advisors were dealing with him truthfully when they told him he needed to lob some cruise missiles into Syria, and he fell for it. Immediately after the missiles landed, the President issued a statement explaining the rationale for the action, which of course he later discovered was false. Because that’s what the military/industrial/Swamp war machine does.
Later in his administration, in January of last year, President Trump hit the head terrorist on earth with a U.S. guided missile, taking him out at the Baghdad airport as he attempted to get out of Iraq following a meeting there. In response to that action, here is what private citizen Joe Biden had to say about it:
Let's be clear: Donald Trump does not have the authority to take us into war with Iran without Congressional approval. A president should never take this nation to war without the informed consent of the American people.

Oh. Hey, did China Joe have your “informed consent” when he lobbed missiles into Syria that no doubt killed and maimed innocent civilians last night? Yeah, didn’t think so.
The next day, here is what candidate Joe Biden had to say about how he would wield his power if elected president:
As President, I will use military power responsibly and as a last resort. We will not go back to forever wars in the Middle East. #DemDebate

In fact, China Joe just used military power irresponsibly and as a first resort and has just gotten us back into another forever war in the Middle East, a war that he, working with Obama and John McCain, actually helped to start in the first place, creating and arming ISIS along the way. That’s the truth of Biden’s involvement in the Syrian civil war, and he is obviously bound and determined to crank it back up now.
Or let me amend that: China Joe is not in charge of anything. Let’s be honest about that. This decision was likely made at the Pentagon and someone might have let Biden know about it by sending him a message through his earpiece, just in case he was still awake eating tapioca pudding or Jello at 6:00 in the evening.
Biden himself is so out of it that yesterday he had to be reminded by Kamala Harris to put his mask on at an event at the White House. That reminder came as he was walking over to try to shake hands with some special guest, an act he has been instructed to avoid for more than a year now due to all the COVID pretense.

This man has no idea where he is or what he is doing at any given moment. He hasn’t made a statement about the missile strikes on Syria because he has no clue why they happened.
But this gets even better. Here’s what Biden’s spokesperson tweeted after the Trump missile strike in 2017:
Think anyone in the White House Press Corps – outside of Fox’s Peter Doocey – will repeat Jen Circle Back Psaki’s statement back to her and ask her to explain why this time is different at today’s press briefing?
Yeah, don’t hold your breath.
That is all.
