Biden’s balancing act with Iran aims for deterrence, not a wider war

President Joe Biden’s decision to strike 85 targets in Iraq and Syria on Friday in response to the death of three American soldiers last weekend amounted to a middle ground: short of a direct strike inside Iran, which would almost certainly spark a wider war, but still more expansive than any action the US has taken so far against the groups it accuses of destabilizing the region.

  1. Call it by its true name - appeasement.
    Biden is willing to compromise American safety and interests to keep Iran happy. Iran can hit American targets, kill American soldiers, fire on American civilian ships but Biden won't strike back because he doesn't want a war.
