President Joe Biden says the U.S. “shall respond” after a drone attack Sunday left three U.S. Army soldiers dead and more than 30 others wounded at a base in Jordan.
Iran-backed militias were reported to be responsible for the deadly drone attack, and in response, Robert Greenway says, the U.S. needs to make Iran “feel the cost” of its actions.(Iran denied any responsibility for the attack.)
Greenway, director ofthe Allison Center for National Security at The Heritage Foundation, says the attacks will continue if Iran does not feel swift and certain consequences.(The Daily Signal is the news outlet of The Heritage Foundation.)
Greenway, who served on the National Security Council in the Trump administration, says he would advise Biden, first, to “stop paying them [Iran] money. Two, we need to stop paying other governments money that ends up in the hands of perpetrators like Kataib Hezbollah.”
And finally, Greenways says, the “[Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps] serving officers, the arm of the Iranian government that executes these attacks … need to be attacked, and they need to be held accountable for the attacks.”
Greenway joins “The Daily Signal Podcast” to share what we know about the attack on the U.S. base in Jordan and how the Biden administration is likely to respond.
