Republicans Demand Biden Launch Retaliatory Strikes Against Iran Over Attack On Israel

Republican lawmakers on Sunday urged the US to launch a retaliatory strike against Iran after the country launched a barrage of drones and missiles at Israel the night before.

President Joe Biden had previously vowed to protect Israel, but aid to the country has been delayed; in fairness to Biden, primarily due to divisions within the Republican party. However, following the attack, Rep. Steve Scalise announced that the House will move forward with a bill to provide Israel with an aid package next week.

“In light of Iran’s unjustified attack on Israel, the House will move from its previously announced legislative schedule next week to instead consider legislation that supports our ally Israel and holds Iran and its terrorist proxies accountable,” Scalise said.

Sen. Lindsey Graham also praised the decision, stating that Iran must face consequences for attacking a US ally. “Prayers for our ally, Israel, who is under attack by the Ayatollah and his henchmen. It is long past time for Iran to pay a heavy price for the terrorism they sow throughout the world,” Graham wrote on X.

Sen. Marsha Blackburn also took to X, demanding that President Biden launch “aggressive retaliatory strikes on Iran” immediately.

  1. there’s no need for massive military action – just enforce the existing sanctions, and stop giving the mullahs billions of dollars!

  2. Crazykanoiy you’re a liar! The only genocide joe chants are democrat! Trump and his rallies are all pro Israel! The pro Israel religious right that you lefties are so afraid of is trumps solid base. Democrat gaslighting like yours is par for the course

  3. crazykanoiy, you’re lying. “Genocide Joe” is not an anti-Israeli chant, it’s an anti-Biden chant.

    It’s also a not at all true that the hold-up in aid to Israel is “primarily due to divisions within the Republican party”. The Republicans have been ready from day one to pass a clean aid package for Israel only. It’s the Democrats who have insisted on piling in everything they want funding for, and refuse to pass a clean package.

    The idea that the USA should strike Iran is insane. Blackburn is a smart lady and knows better than that. The USA should stand behind whatever Israel decides to do, but it has not been attacked so there is no call for it to do anything.

  4. Millhouse is right.
    Just give us the munitions we need and we will fight our own wars, no need for US involvement.
    We first need to finish with the proxies, on our borders, then we will take on the main instigator, please stop filling their pockets
