Biden Bombs Syria–MES EP.96
In his first military action since inauguration, Joe Biden launched a series of airstrikes against Syria, signaling a renewed imperialist offensive in the region.

It is simply: “back to normal” for the US as Biden and his Vice President Kamala Harris are only escalating the wars started by former President Barack Obama.

In the dying days of Donald Trump’s presidency, former US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced his imprudent decision to designate the Yemeni Ansarullah resistance movement as a terrorist organization. Shortly after, Biden’s Secretary of State Antony Blinken reversed Pompeo’s decision vis-à-vis Ansarullah, allegedly to avoid obstructing the delivery of food and medicine to the Yemeni civilians who are being starved to death in the Saudi-orchestrated genocide.
