The war between Israel and Hamas is escalating and could ignite a powder keg across the entire Middle East.
Many Americans are growing concerned about the possibility of World War III breaking out at any moment.
And now America First conservatives are on edge after Joe Biden sent Antony Blinken on a surprise trip to this one country.
Donald Trump was the first American President to not start any new wars in the past 40 years.
Trump’s America First foreign policy kept the country out of foreign entanglements as recommended by the Founding Fathers.
But that all changed under Joe Biden.
And now Americans are growing more worried by the day about Joe Biden bungling the United States into World War III with Iran in the Middle East.
Joe Biden responded to the October 7 attacks against Israel by deploying several aircraft carriers and battleships to the region as well as thousands of American soldiers.
But the situation continues to escalate and fears of a full-blown war in the Middle East are rising.
On Monday, Secretary of State Antony Blinken wrapped up his second trip to the Middle East since the war started.
Blinken visited the occupied West Bank on Sunday and met with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, where he was met by dozens of protesters.
“When word spread of Blinken’s arrival in the West Bank city of Ramallah, dozens of Palestinians turned out to protest, holding signs showing dripping blood and with messages that included, ‘Blinken blood is on your hands,’” PBS reported. “The meeting with Abbas ended without any public comment.”
After his meeting in the West Bank, Blinken made a surprise visit to Baghdad, Iraq to meet with Iraqi Prime Minister Mohammed Shia al-Sudani.
Several U.S. military bases in Iraq have been hit by rocket and drone attacks since the war started on October 7.
According to Pentagon reports, there were 17 attacks on U.S. bases in Iraq and 12 in Syria between October 17 and November 4.
“I made it very clear that attacks or threats coming from militias that are aligned with Iran are totally unacceptable,” Blinken said. “It was very important to send a very clear message to anyone who might seek to take advantage of the conflict in Gaza to threaten our personnel here or anywhere else in the region: Don’t do it.”
“We will take every necessary step to protect our people,” he told Sudani.
On Monday, Blinken wrapped up his trip to the Middle East with a visit to Turkey.
“U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken wrapped up a grueling Middle East diplomatic tour on Monday in Turkey after only limited success in efforts to forge a regional consensus on how best to ease civilian suffering in Gaza as Israel intensifies its war against Hamas,” PBS reported. “In the Turkish capital, Ankara, Blinken met with Foreign Minister Hakan Fidan following a frantic weekend of travel that took him from Israel to Jordan, the occupied West Bank, Cyprus and Iraq, to build support for the Biden administration’s proposal for ‘humanitarian pauses’ to Israel’s relentless military campaign in Gaza.”
Before departing from Turkey, Blinken told the press that “all of this is a work in progress.”
“We obviously don’t agree on everything, but there are common views on some of the imperatives of the moment that we’re working on together.”
Biden and Blinken are hoping that a pause in the conflict, in order to bring humanitarian aid into Gaza, will help convince Hamas to release some of the hundreds of hostages being held.
“We’ve engaged the Israelis on steps that they can take to minimize civilian casualties,” Blinken said. “We’re working, as I said, very aggressively on getting more humanitarian assistance into Gaza,” he continued, before adding that, “We are very focused on the hostages held by Hamas, including the Americans, and we are doing everything possible to bring them home.”
Even though he visited Turkey, Blinken did not meet with President Tayyip Erdogan.
Erdogan has been very critical of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s handling of the war in Gaza against Hamas.
Blinken was met in Turkey by large crowds of protestors chanting “murderer Blinken, get out of Turkey!”
Americans experienced peace time under Donald Trump’s Presidency.
But Joe Biden abandoned Trump’s America First foreign policy.
And now the entire nation is on edge about the real possibility of Biden bungling the United States into World War III.
