Everyone except Joe Biden seems to know that. Certainly, Iran does. And we are there because of three major failures–in intelligence, appeasement, and deterrence, mostly on the part of the failed U. S. policies in the Middle East since the “apology tour” there conducted by Barack Obama and reawakened under Joe Biden. And the enemy is led by Iran, as so well noted in a recent posting by Walter Russell Mead: “The truth is simple. Iran is at war with Israel and with the U. S. It does not seek compromise or accommodations. It does not want its interests respected or its grievances redressed. It wants what it says it wants: a holocaust in Israel and the destruction of the U. S.” The world has changed drastically since October 7 in many ways, including politically in the U. S., and we had better figure out which of our leaders is capable of dealing with this reality soon because 2024 will be a foreign policy/national security election.
