In a surprising twist of events, Iran has once again accused Israel of committing "genocide." The irony of Iran, known for peace and goodwill, making such allegations against Israel is hard to miss.
But fear not, because President Biden isn't idly sitting by in the face of these groundless claims. No, he's taking action. He has dispatched not one but two carrier strike groups to the region. The USS Eisenhower and the USS Gerald R. Ford are en route to the eastern Mediterranean, underscoring America's unwavering support for Israel.
President Joe Biden: "Nothing changes, send the warships in!"
This was just after the live conference had finished and Biden must have thought the microphones were off! #Biden #hospital #Gaza #Netenyahu #PalestineGenocide #PresidentBiden #Hamas #GazaCity pic.twitter.com/I0xWu7x2IE

Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin has made it abundantly clear that these naval deployments are primarily aimed at safeguarding Israel from hostile actions. It's imperative that we hold Hamas accountable for their attack on Israel, and we won't tolerate Iran or their associates in Hezbollah exploiting the situation to escalate tensions. The United States is here to deter any further aggression and to send a clear message to Iran that their mischief won't be tolerated.
Let's remember that the true instigator here is Hamas. The Palestinian terror group, along with Iran, is once again sowing chaos. And their reward? A warning from Iran about "far-reaching consequences." It's a feeble attempt. The longstanding alliance between Iran and Hamas isn't much of a secret, so their coordinated actions come as no surprise.
It's important to note that the United States lacks direct evidence linking Iran to the recent Hamas attack. Nevertheless, Iran persists in its blustering and efforts to intimidate Israel. But let me be clear, we're not buying into it.
And as if things couldn't get any more chaotic, Israel is now accusing Hezbollah of launching rockets into their territory from Lebanon. It's as if these terrorist groups are in a contest to see who can cause more trouble. However, Israel will stand firm and won't tolerate attacks on its citizens. They have the right to self-defense, and I wholeheartedly support them.
So, let's not be swayed by Iran's empty threats and unfounded accusations. Our allegiance lies with Israel, and we won't allow terrorist groups and their enablers in Iran and Hezbollah to evade accountability. The United States has sent a resounding message with the deployment of two carrier strike groups — we're vigilant, and we're fully prepared to protect our allies.
