The world is on fire, and the Biden White House is fanning the flames.
Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has continued to say, “Death to America is not just a slogan, it’s a policy.” The Biden administration must take these words seriously. Americans are still being held hostage by Hamas, and our servicemembers are under daily threat from Iran-backed groups. Following the Oct. 7 assault on Israel, there have been at least 56 attacks on U.S. troops by Iranian proxies, injuring nearly 60 Americans.
Instead of President Joe Biden’s strategy of appeasement, the United States must follow a strategy of strength. In the Senate, I have outlined key aspects for how we must deter and defeat Iran.
First, we must reject an Iranian nuclear deal. As our servicemembers, partners, and allies are bombarded, it is important to remember restoring the Obama-Biden Iran nuclear deal would do nothing to stop these attacks while further rewarding the regime’s support for terrorism.
