In a stunning display of negligence, the Biden administration has left American citizens stranded in Israel as the country plunges into a full-blown war with Hamas. Despite flight cancellations by major airlines, President Joe Biden nonchalantly advised Americans to find their own way out of the war zone, whether it be through commercial flights or ground transportation. Talk about passing the buck!
Now, you might be thinking, shouldn’t the government be responsible for the safety and well-being of its citizens in times of crisis? Well, apparently not in Biden’s America. Instead of stepping up and ensuring the safe return of Americans caught in the crossfire, the administration has left them to navigate their own frustrating and potentially dangerous paths back home.
To make matters worse, several airlines had already canceled their services to Israel even before the administration’s lackluster guidance. So now, these stranded Americans are left to fend for themselves, facing the daunting prospect of dealing with the Israeli consulate for an indefinite amount of time just to secure a way out. Talk about a bureaucratic nightmare!
And let’s not forget the context here. Hamas, a terrorist organization, launched a surprise attack on Israel, killing innocent civilians and taking hostages. In response, Israel’s leaders promised to wage total war on Gaza, leaving them without basic necessities such as water and electricity. The Israeli Air Force is ruthlessly leveling entire city blocks in an effort to dismantle Hamas’ command centers, which were backed by none other than Iran. It’s a terrifying situation, and Americans caught in the middle deserve better than a casual “good luck, find your own way out” from their president.
This gaffe by the Biden administration is just the latest in a string of failures when it comes to handling the fallout from this conflict. Let’s not forget that Biden himself previously handed over a whopping $6 billion to Iran, some of which ended up supporting Hamas’ aggression against Israel. And what does he do in the aftermath? Host a barbecue for White House staff! Talk about tone-deafness.
It’s clear that conservatives have legitimate concerns about the Biden administration potentially getting involved in another endless war. The handling of the situation in Israel is just another reminder of their inability to properly navigate complex international conflicts. We need a president who can put America first and ensure the safety of our citizens abroad. It’s time for leadership that is strong, decisive, and actually knows how to protect American interests.
