President Trump Flies Two Huge Bombers Over Middle East

This week, President Trump flew two huge B-52H Stratofortress bombers over the Middle East, sending a strong message to the tyrannical rule of the Iranian regime. According to the Associated Press, this was the second of such flights in the last month. U.S bombers conducted a similar mission in November.

A military official said that the bombers planned to fly across Europe, the Arabian Peninsula, and then fly down the Persian Gulf, staying close to Qatar but away from Iran’s coastline.

General Frank McKenzie, the top U.S. commander for the Middle East, said, “The ability to fly strategic bombers halfway across the world in a non-stop mission and to rapidly integrate them with multiple regional partners demonstrates our close working relationships and our shared commitment to regional security and stability.”

He continued, “We do not seek conflict but we must remain postured and committed to respond to any contingency or in opposition to any aggression.”

According to a report from the Associated Press, “A senior military official, who spoke to a small group of reporters on the condition of anonymity to provide details of the mission, said the administration believes that the risk of an Iranian attack on U.S. or allied interests in the region is a bit higher than normal now, and the Pentagon wants to ensure that Tehran thinks twice before doing anything,”

Unlike President Trump, Joe Biden plans to reduce the global influence of the U.S. military, according to an Axios report released in November that states:

“The Biden team wants to elevate diplomacy and de-emphasize the military as an instrument of national power. “So having DoD rollout front-and-center sends one message,” said a source close to Biden. “Not doing so sends another message. There has always been the intent to signal from Day One that this is not an administration that is going to put the Pentagon at the center of things.”

An editorial from The Wall Street Journal Editorial Board warned against Biden reversing Trump’s “maximum pressure” sanctions campaign against Iran and returning to the Iran nuclear deal. The editorial said the Trump sanctions have “succeeded in weakening the rogue regime”  and that “today Tehran exports about a quarter of the 2.5 million barrels of oil a day it shipped when the U.S. was still in the deal. This deprives the government of $50 billion in annual revenue. The economy has shrunk, while the Iranian rial has lost 80% of its value against the dollar.”

“The original nuclear deal makes it easy for Iran to break out as its provisions sunset over the next decade,” the report added. “Meanwhile, it provided cash for Iran to expand its regional influence and terrorism. After signing the 2015 deal, Iran increased its military budget more than 30% between 2016 and 2018, and its proxies in Syria, Iraq, and Yemen benefited.”

  1. I think President Trump is still showing what a great President should do. The left has left us vulnerable. We need someone like TRUMP to stand up to them. I do not think Mr. Biteme will do that. Under a Presidency with him and Harris they will sell us out. Keep President TRUMP in the White House we need him.

  2. Iran’s despotic leaders, in common with most similar leaders, do cower down when faced with overwhelming odds. Strength is the only way to deal with these people and Trump knows it. Biden will make a big mistake if he adopts the foolish policies of his old boss, Obama.

    • Don’t believe me when I tell you, check it for your self !!! DEMO–C–RATS are in BED with China !!! Couldn’t get rid of TRUMP after many trials & millions upon millions of OUR tax dollars wasted GOV. TIME !!! Last DITCH EFFORT spread COVID to U.S.A., which got more out of hand than planned !!! Think DEMO–C–RATS aren’t CAPABLE of stooping this LOW ??? Better open those closed EYES !!?

  3. I am still praying that some of the lawsuits will prove that President Trump is the winner of the election. The democrats have planned well in advance how
    to cheat. The laws that some of the states added were unconstitutional. You can’t trust the democrats.

  4. I know in my heart and “gut” that President Trump has the Middle East leaders “on the ropes”, and the Biden administration needs to keep the pressure on them.

  5. Everything that Trump has done will be undone by Biden. I thought the American people had had enough Obama but I guess not. America can never trust our election results again. History some day will show just how the Dems did it. I do believe sending out 80 million unsolicited blank checks (ballads) had something to do with it.

  6. too bad there wasn’t a malfunction with the bomber’s belly doors, it would have been AWESOME if only a few dozen MOAB’s ACCIDENTLY fell out on the ayatollah’s rag! Talk about a bad hair day!
