Joe Biden has vowed that US commitment to defend Israel against Iran was “ironclad” as concerns rose in Washington that a “significant” Iranian strike could happen within days, in retaliation for the bombing of an Iranian consular building in Damascus.

“We also want to address the Iranian threat to launch a significant – they’re threatening to launch a significant attack in Israel,” Biden said. “As I told Prime Minister Netanyahu, our commitment to Israel’s security against these threats from Iran and its proxies is ironclad. Let me say it again, ironclad. We’re gonna do all we can to protect Israel’s security.”

    How does Biden not have aides telling him that this is the one issue that will get us a Trump dictatorship

    The US needs to disavow Israel completely, not give them any weapons, and truly help Palestine.

      Dems would rather risk Trump than upset Israel

      Dems would rather risk Trump than upset the military industrial complex

      Dems would rather risk Trump than upset finance and real state oligarchs.

      And most crucially, Dems would prefer Trump to any actual change. Their reelection money is contingent on things staying the way they are

      Eh, we don’t need to disavow them completely and burn a bridge with an ally. We just need to try literally anything to make them stop picking fights and committing war crimes. Like maybe stop funding their military and sending them weapons. Then maybe further sanctions. Problem is we are doing the opposite, and we seem to fully endorse Israel’s military objectives.

        I don’t know, it’s gotten to the point that I don’t think Israel should exist in its current form. They can’t be allies if we want to disband their state and build some kind of secular government to govern the region.
