A new report from the Washington Post claims that U.S. military forces in Jordan likely did not detect the approach of the drone that ended up killing three American troops last week, noting there wasn’t an air defense system located on-site that possessed the capabilities of taking it out, according to the initial assessment of the incident by the military.
The drone was made by Iran, which just goes to show that the government of that nation is hostile to the United States, something that should not be a shock when you consider how many of their people take to the streets on a regular basis to declare “death to America.” At this point, it’s become the country’s official slogan.
And yet, for whatever reason, Democrats like Joe Biden and Barack Obama have been chomping at the bit to send them billions of dollars as part of a nuclear deal. That really seems fishy, right?
When you put all of the pieces together, the preliminary findings clash with the previous assertions that American air defenses simply mistook the drone for one belonging to the U.S. that was simply returning to base.
What’s truly worrisome is how in the world the greatest military force on Earth lacks the proper technology to handle threats from drones built by countries that are supposedly years behind us in the development of these kinds of weapons. It’s absurd. We’re supposed to be a superpower. There’s no way this sort of attack should have been able to happen.
U.S. Central Command, which is responsible for providing oversight for all military activity throughout the region, has refused to state whether or not officials think the militants responsible for the drone attack had knowledge of the limited defenses of the base.
The attack, which occurred on Jan. 28, resulted in the deaths of three Army reservists hailing from Georgia. A number of assaults have been launched on American positions in the Middle East ever since Hamas, a Palestinian terrorist organization, attacked Israel in October 2023. Many of these attacks have been carried out by groups funded by Iran. Clearly, there are attempts being made to pull the United States into some sort of major armed conflict in the Middle East.
There are some changes already being made to the base’s defense in light of the attack. “We are not waiting for the investigation to be complete to implement changes from lessons learned in the tragic attack on Tower 22,” the official remarked.
Let’s hope proper measures are taken to ensure we do not see another drop of American blood spilled by a drone attack from those who are quickly making themselves our enemies.
