Joe Biden is keeping at least one of his promises. That is the one where he promised to reverse Trump policies. President Trump had been withdrawing troops in Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan.

On his first day in office, Biden sent in a convoy of weapons and 200 fresh troops into Syria, in keeping with his longtime position of war at any cost.

This is likely not to sit well with Syria and amounts to a military occupation of their country.

BizPac Review reported:

A large convoy of U.S. military personnel headed into Syria on Thursday along with hundreds of troops some 24 hours after President Joe Biden took office and took on his commander-in-chief role, foreign media reported.

Citing Syrian state news agency SANA, i24 News reported that a convoy of about 40 trucks and armored vehicles “entered northeastern Syria” on Thursday supported by helicopters.

Citing Syrian state news agency SANA, i24 News reported that a convoy of about 40 trucks and armored vehicles “entered northeastern Syria” on Thursday supported by helicopters.

And while “other local media” noted that such resupply convoys are not uncommon, SANA’s report added that an additional 200 U.S. troops were choppered into the Hasakeh province as well.

MSN reported:

“The new U.S. administration must stop acts of aggression and occupation, plundering the wealth of my country, withdraw its occupying forces from it, and stop supporting separatist militias, illegal entities, and attempts to threaten Syria’s sovereignty, unity and territorial integrity,” Jaafari said.

Syria’s unrest began amid mass protests across the Arab World that erupted a decade ago, devolving into conflict between security forces and rebels. Biden, then serving as vice president under President Barack Obama, backed calls for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to step down at the time, as the U.S. and regional partners offered support for the opposition, accusing the Syrian leader of human rights abuses.

This will benefit defense contractors who were losing money during troop withdrawals, but are military lives compared to the hefty campaign contributions the defense industry will reward them with?

Welcome to Bidenmania.
