In a recent move, President Joe Biden has made the controversial decision to select around 2,000 U.S. troops for potential deployment in support of Israel, as the ongoing conflict with Palestine escalates.
This decision comes on the heels of a horrifying event in which Hamas terrorists carried out a brutal massacre of hundreds of Israeli civilians, leaving the world in shock.
The troops chosen for this mission represent various branches of the U.S. military and are slated for non-combat roles, focusing primarily on advisory and medical support. Currently, these troops are stationed in the Middle East and neighboring European nations.
When pressed by CBS News regarding the possibility of American troops engaging in combat in Gaza, President Biden responded, “I don’t think that’s necessary. Israel has one of the finest fighting forces.” However, he added, “I guarantee we’re gonna provide them everything they need.”
There’s no doubt that there is widespread support for Israel following the barbaric attack that took place. However, many Americans are growing increasingly wary. After two decades of involvement in the Middle East, with countless lives lost and trillions of tax dollars expended in places like Afghanistan, Iraq, and Syria, there is legitimate concern that Joe Biden might be leading the nation into yet another seemingly endless conflict in the Middle East.
