The attack against Israel by Hamas impacts far more than Israel.
This conflict has the potential to turn into WWIII very quickly.
That needle moved a bit more as the death toll in Israel revealed that Americans are among the dead.
It's Been Confirmed
Secretary of State Antony Blinken has been doing the rounds trying to keep the damage level under control, but he is not having much luck.
When he was asked about Americans being killed in Israel, he did not have much information other than to regurgitate what we already knew.
He stated, "Yes. We have reports that several Americans were killed. We're working overtime to verify that. At the same time, there are reports of missing Americans, and, there again, we're working to verify those reports."
Then, on Tuesday, Joe Biden finally lifted what amounted to be a 3-day lid and confirmed that 14 Americans are confirmed dead in Israel.
He also stated, "We now know that American citizens are among those being held by Hamas.
"I've directed my team to share intelligence and deploy additional experts from across the United States government to consult with and advise Israeli counterparts on hostage recovery efforts. Because as president, I have no higher priority than the safety of Americans being held hostage around the world."
Hamas issued a recent threat to start executing prisoners if Israel strikes civilian targets without warning, which could significantly complicate the effectiveness of these bombings.
Hamas is known for hiding posts in civilian targets, such as hospitals, churches, schools, and apartment buildings, so Netanyahu is going to have to figure out optimal timing for his strikes to ensure civilians have time to escape but that Hamas does not have time to move its operations.
Biden should have spoken on Sunday, but he was too busy having a BBQ. On Saturday, Biden only offered up a few words, then disappeared for the rest of the weekend.
It was more than 72 hours before Biden addressed a situation that could lead us into a World War… and yet the media refuses to call him out for it.
Biden left Americans behind in Afghanistan and now Americans have died in Israel on his watch due to his weakness.
What will it take for America to wake up that Biden, nor Democrats, are the answer?
