In another episode of Joe Biden’s never-ending game of Whack-A-Mole, the US Navy has launched yet another strike against those pesky Houthi terrorists. This is the fourth strike in just one week, and it’s clear that Biden’s strategy is all about playing the game rather than actually solving the problem.
According to US Central Command, 14 missiles that were ready to be launched were successfully targeted and destroyed. These missiles posed a direct threat to merchant vessels and US Navy ships in the region, so it’s good to see the military taking action to defend our interests. However, it begs the question: when will this game of Whack-A-Mole end?
These attacks in the Red Sea are unlawful and reckless. The safety of U.S. mariners is our priority, and DOT's Maritime Administration is in coordination with DOD and U.S.-flagged vessels to ensure their security. https://t.co/3eCNrU8NvS

It’s clear that the Biden administration has no coherent strategy when it comes to dealing with the Houthi terrorists. These strikes seem to be random and not tied to any specific event. The Houthis continue to launch attacks against American ships, and it’s clear that the current approach is not deterring them in any way.
What’s even more concerning is the leaked information about these strikes before they happen. It’s like the Biden administration wants to give the Houthis a heads-up so they can scurry away and move their equipment. This kind of incompetence is unacceptable and only emboldens our enemies.
Playing Whack-A-Mole may be a fun game at the county fair, but it’s not a winning strategy when it comes to national security. We need a strong and decisive leader who can actually make a plan and stick to it. Biden’s approach only disrupts international supply chains and gives the Houthis and their Iranian sponsors more confidence to launch further attacks.
It’s clear that Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg is failing in his responsibility to ensure the safety of our mariners. Shipping hasn’t been mentioned in weeks, and it’s concerning that this crucial aspect of our economy is being neglected.
In the end, Biden’s Whack-A-Mole strategy is nothing more than a distraction. We need a leader who will take decisive action to protect American interests and ensure the safety of our ships and sailors. Sadly, it doesn’t seem like Biden is up to the task.
