Will the US ever leave the Middle East?

As President Joe Biden (D) took office earlier this year, we have seen the so-called  “Return to Normalcy”  narrative return the Middle East back to its normal chaotic state, in contrast to President Donald Trump’s (R) isolationist-styled policy with terror states such as Iran.

According to the AP, over the weekend the Iraqi Military has confirmed that at least four rockets struck an Iraqi airbase.  Other officials have confirmed that in the midst of the action, only one man was wounded where an American defense company is stationed to service combat aircraft.

The attack is thought to be in retaliation to rockets targeting coalition forces outside of Irbil international airport in the Kurdish-controlled region of northern Iraq.  A small Shiite militant group named “Saraya Awliya al-Dam”, Arabic for, “Guardians of Blood Brigade” has claimed responsibility for the attack.

The Saturday attack is also contributed to NATO’s latest announcement of upping their presence in the middle east region, from 500 personnel to 4,000 personnel, to clean up the remnants of the Islamic State, already crippled by Trump Admin policy.

However, do not think for a second this is just a middle eastern problem, as Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) already has a diagnosis for the attacks.  Rubio believes these attacks are more so prompted as the terror state of Iran is, “testing President Biden”.

Rubio then adds that he [Biden] is, “failing the test.”

As for Iraq, it looks like the U.S. led-coalition of troops in the region will only increase.  In turn, this will severely reverse President Trump’s efforts to stabilize the area, such as pulling out of the Iran-Nuclear Deal, and hitting ISIS hard, rather than pouring money into the region as his predecessors have, and Biden will.
