President Joe Biden and White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki are receiving backlash for past tweets attacking the Trump administration’s Middle East airstrikes after Biden approved bombardments on Syria Thursday.

In 2017, Psaki questioned the legality of airstrikes launched by the Trump administration.

“What is the legal authority for strikes? Assad is a brutal dictator. But Syria is a sovereign country,” Psaki wrote on Twitter in April, 2017.

In April 2017, the Trump administration launched airstrikes against Syria in retaliation for an earlier chemical weapons attack on Syrian civilians.

On Thursday, the Biden administration launched attacks on Iran-backed militia groups in Syria, killing 22 Iran-backed fighters.

Thursday’s strike came in response to an attack last week by Iran-backed militants on an Iraqi airbase used by the US military, which killed one US military contractor and wounded nine other people.

The strike destroyed “multiple facilities located at a border control point used by a number of Iranian-backed militant groups,” according to a statment by the Pentagon. It described the strike as “defensive.”

Former Trump administration official Richard Grenell tweeted, “Today is a Circle Back day…” in response to Psaki’s tweet.

Sen. Rand Paul wrote, “I condemn meddling in Syria’s civil war. I also condemn attacking a sovereign nation without authority. What authority does @POTUS have to strike Syria?”

“Great question,” Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar wrote.

In 2019, Biden called Trump “erratic” and “impulsive” after it was reported that Trump had considered air strikes on Iran.

“Trump’s erratic, impulsive actions are the last thing we need as Commander-in-Chief. No president should order a military strike without fully understanding the consequences. We don’t need another war in the Middle East, but Trump’s actions toward Iran only make that more likely,” Biden wrote.

Newsmax contributor Jessie Jane Duff asked, “Did you forget to delete this before you bombed Syria?”

Chinese Spy Balloon: Tensions rise between the U.S. and China

A strange object was spotted Wednesday over Billings Montana. The Pentagon confirmed Thursday that the strange object was, in fact, a Chinese spy balloon. According to a report from KPAX, a western Montana news outlet, the balloon had been on the governments radar for days.

On Friday, the Chinese government released a statement saying that the balloon spotted in Billings is a “civilian airship” that’s sole purpose is used to collect research on weather and that it had just blown off course. The balloon was not shot down by orders of the Pentagon due to the risk of falling debris injuring people on the ground.

Sara Carter, who has spoken frequently on the Chinese government’s threat and expansion to the West, stated on Twitter that the United States has failed to stop China from purchasing land near military installations, vital agricultural land, as well as, allowing Chinese linked companies, such as Huawei, to install technology in cellular towers. Those cellular towers are located in Montana, along side more than 150 ICBM nuclear silos.

China said, “The Chinese side regrets the unintended entry of the airship into U.S. airspace due to force majeure.” Majeure meaning that it was out of there control. It blew off course due to limited “self-steering” capabilities according the Ministry. The ministry also stated that the balloon, “deviated far from its planned course.”

This incident is adding fuel to the fire of what is already a tense relationship between the worlds two largest economies. China already lays claim to approximately 80% of the South China Sea, and is seeking full control over Taiwan after assuming full control of Hong Kong. China’s belt and road initiative has invested copious amounts of money into building infrastructure in other countries and uses it as economic blackmail. China’s transportation of fentanyl into Mexico is yet again another example of how they are seeking to damage the US.

Is this just a weather ballon that blew off course? US officials at the White House seem to be unconvinced and will continue to monitor the balloon, as reported.

UPDATED: Statement from the Pentagon was jaw dropping when a reporter asked if the public has a right to know about Beijing’s balloon.

“The public certainly has the ability to look up in the sky and see where the balloon is,” a DOD official responded.
