Biden offers ‘rock solid’ support for Israel
“Israel has the right to defend itself and its people, full stop."

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T


“Today the people of Israel are under attack orchestrated by a terrorist organization, Hamas. In this moment of tragedy, I want to say to them and to the world and to terrorists everywhere, the United States stands with Israel,” Biden said in a video statement delivered from the White House.

“We will not ever fail to have their back, we’ll make sure that they’ll have the help their citizens need and they can continue to defend themselves,” Biden said while flanked by US Secretary of State Antony Blinken.

US President Joe Biden backed Israel’s right to self-defense, warned other parties in the region against joining the attack against the Jewish state, and said he was in contact with leaders around the Middle East, in a public address on Saturday.

“Today the people of Israel are under attack orchestrated by a terrorist organization, Hamas. In this moment of tragedy, I want to say to them and to the world and to terrorists everywhere, the United States stands with Israel,” Biden said in a video statement delivered from the White House.

“We will not ever fail to have their back, we’ll make sure that they’ll have the help their citizens need and they can continue to defend themselves,” Biden said while flanked by US Secretary of State Antony Blinken.

This places him somewhat at odds with the Squad.

And I visualize that very line being spoken by Captain Louis Renault (Claude Rains) to Rick Blaine (Humphrey Bogart) in what has always been MY favourite movie, Casablanca.

I haven't used this site for quite a while, and of course I had no idea what my password was. Fortunately however, the "forgot password" feature worked and I was able to log in successfully.

But what automatically appeared was a very old account of mine, with the screen name "michael-c."! [AKA "The Silent Freshman"] & a rather strange avatar from waaaay back. Anyway, please know that this is "Krishna" (or some variation of that I forget exactly what it was as it was long ago). And the strange avatar that appears is one I used long, long ago.

Don't have time to update all this now as I am on my way out to do errands-- more later :-)

You're THIS Krishna? crop=auto .   If so, your intelligent commentary and wry humour have been sorely missed on this site, and by me.

Last I heard, an American aircraft carrier and guided missile escort ship are on their way to the eastern Mediterranean.

And now some moron is going to accuse the U.S. of intending to start a world war. But this is merely symbolic-- a "show of force"-- just in case anyone (AKA "Iran") get any ideas of trying to escalate matters. 

Actually the one that really should be eliminated should be Iran (or rather its current gov't)as there are really a lot of good people there many of whom totally oppose their repressive gov't).

Didn't America already do that before?  Obviously it didn't stick.

This is what is headed to the eastern Med.

The USS Gerald R. Ford Carrier Strike Group includes the USS Gerald R. Ford aircraft carrier, which is the largest warship in the world, in addition to the Ticonderoga-class guided missile cruiser USS Normandy and four Arleigh-Burke-class guided missile destroyers — USS Thomas Hudner, USS Ramage, USS Carney and USS Roosevelt.

The USS Gerald R. Ford was in the western Mediterranean when it received orders to deploy. Depending on its precise location, it could have to travel over a thousand miles.

Austin also announced steps to augment U.S. Air Force fighter aircraft squadrons in the region. USAF aircraft are going into bases in the Middle East where they will be available for operations against Iran.
