WORLD NEWS – President Joe Biden vowed ‘we shall respond’ to a suicide drone strike that killed three U.S. service members in Jordan late on Saturday night.

Moment of Silence

During a campaign stop at a church in Columbia, South Carolina, Biden held a moment of silence for those fallen and promised retaliation.

‘We had a tough day last night in the Middle East. We lost three brave souls,’ he told those gathered for his visit on Sunday.

Earlier on Sunday, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) demanded Biden act swiftly and decisively to counterstrike against Iran after the suicide drone strike sparked widespread outrage.

Impacts of the Strike

The Pentagon confirmed that the Saturday strike resulted in three soldiers’ deaths and injured another 34. The top suspect remains Iran and its proxies.

‘I am calling on the Biden Administration to strike targets of significance inside Iran, not only as reprisal for the killing of our forces, but as deterrence against future aggression,’ the South Carolina senator wrote in a statement.

‘The only thing the Iranian regime understands is force. Until they pay a price with their infrastructure and their personnel, the attacks on U.S. troops will continue.’

Graham urged Biden: ‘Hit Iran now. Hit them hard.’

Where the Attack Happened

The drone attacks late Saturday were carried out on a base in the northeast part of Jordan, near the Syria border and is thought to be carried out by Iran, which is the main backer of Hezbollah. 

The suicide strike comes as conflict in the wartorn region continues to escalate, with the war between Israel and Hamas terrorists in Gaza still ongoing, and Iran currently exchanging airstrikes with U.S. ally Pakistan.

House Foreign Affairs Chairman Michael McCaul also blamed the Biden administration for being too weak on Iran and facilitating a foreign policy environment where they thought they could get away with it.

Over 150 Attacks in Four Months

‘Iran’s proxies have launched over 150 attacks on US troops since October, as the Iran-backed Houthis attack global shipping, and Iran-backed Hezbollah and Hamas attack our ally Israel,’ McCaul wrote. ‘The Biden administration’s failed Middle East policy has destroyed our deterrence against adversaries in the Middle East.’

‘We need a major reset of our Middle East policy to protect our national security interests and restore deterrence.’
