Is Biden’s Incompetence Leading Us To Inevitable War?

As an American citizen, I am concerned about the possibility of another terrorist attack on American soil. There seems to be a growing fear that this could happen, especially with the current leadership in place. However, if such an attack were to occur, it is important that citizens are not misled about the reasons behind it.

After four years of what many rightly see as incompetence, there is a risk of complacency among the population. If Joe Biden and his policies fail to prevent an attack, they cannot be excused. Furthermore, any attempts by Biden to appear heroic or take credit in the aftermath should be met with disdain.

If an attack were to occur, it would be equivalent to someone setting a fire and then seeking praise for putting it out. As a citizen, I hope that such an event never happens, but it is important to be prepared and hold our leaders accountable.

A retired general has now raised the alarm over growing concerns that a major terrorist attack on U.S. soil is now “inevitable.” Retired Gen. Frank McKenzie, the former head of U.S. Central Command, warned Sunday that the Islamic terror group ISIS has a “strong desire” to attack the American people.

McKenzie stated that the threat against the U.S. and other foreign powers is expanding. During an appearance on ABC News’s “This Week,” McKenzie warned that U.S. officials should, “believe them when they say that.”

McKenzie added, “I think the threat is growing.” He said the threats from ISIS-K after the Islamic terrorist group took responsibility for a deadly attack in Moscow, Russia, last month that killed more than 140 people.

The terror group also claimed responsibility for a mass bombing in Iran in January.

“It began to grow as soon as we left Afghanistan, it took pressure off ISIS-K,”

referencing Democratic President Joe Biden’s chaotic U.S. withdrawal from the country in 2021.

“So, I think we should expect further attempts of this nature against the United States as well as our partners and other nations abroad. I think this is inevitable.”

McKenzie, who was the commander of the U.S. forces in the Middle East, including the withdrawal from Afghanistan, said the U.S. holds a large enough military presence in Iraq and Syria to combat extremists in the region.

McKenzie maintains that the U.S. should have kept a small troop presence in Afghanistan amid the exit instead of completely pulling out and ending the longest war in U.S. history.

Biden was chasing a leftist agenda and his “over-the-horizon capability” to “act quickly and decisively” in Afghanistan, is a joke. This administration doesn’t act quickly or decisively on anything. The chaotic withdrawal from the region was a huge mistake.

The retired general stated that the U.S. now has “almost no ability to see into that country and almost no ability to strike into that country,” which benefits ISIS and other terror groups.

“If you can keep pressure on them, in their homeland and their base, it makes it hard for them to conduct these types of attacks.”

“Unfortunately, we no longer place that pressure on them, so they’re free to gain strength, they’re free to plan, they’re free to coordinate.”

McKenzie said he believes “things would be different” and “we might actually be safer than we are” if the U.S. and its allies kept a small presence in Afghanistan.

In McKenzie’s opinion, The deadly attack in Moscow on March 22 highlights the threat of terror groups being able to regroup and plan large-scale operations.

The U.S. claims that  it alerted the Kremlin to a possible terror plot weeks before that attack happened.

“I think there was probably a good opportunity for the Russians to have averted this attack had they actually listened to the material that was presented to them,” McKenzie said.

The suspects opened fire in one of Russia’s largest shopping and entertainment complexes before a fire broke out, as reported by the Russian Federal Security Service. A U.S. counter-terrorism official told the New York Post that terrorists from ISIS-K could cross Biden’s open borders and conduct an attack comparable to the one in Moscow.

The official said ISIS is growing “bolder” and that its members may attempt to take advantage of the chaos at the southern border and seek out a “bigger” target.

“An attack on US soil is definitely a possibility,” the official said. “It would certainly send a message.”

European leaders have also warned about the prospect of war.

Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk called on European nations to step up investment in their defense. Tusk argues that the continent is not ready for the current “prewar era.”

“I don’t want to scare anyone, but war is no longer a concept from the past,” McKenzie said in a recent interview with European newspapers before reminding everyone about Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

“It’s real, and it started over two years ago.”

In January, Swedish defense officials warned about potential war as the nation was getting close to joining NATO, which has since happened.

“For a nation for whom peace has been a pleasant companion for almost 210 years, the idea that it is an immovable constant is conveniently close at hand,” Swedish Civil Defense Minister Carl-Oskar Bohlin said at the time at Folk och Försvars, or “Society and Defense,” annual national conference in Sälen.

He added:

“But taking comfort in this conclusion has become more dangerous than it has been for a very long time. Many have said it before me, but let me do so in an official capacity, more plainly and with naked clarity: There could be war in Sweden.”

A war in Sweden? Can anyone think of a more neutral country? Yet their Civil Defense Minister believes that there may be a conflict within their borders. The United States has been invaded and is a much more vulnerable target thanks to the wide-open borders courtesy of the puppet Biden and his far-left puppeteers.

God forbid anything should happen, but if it should, connect the dots and hold Biden accountable. His disgusting incompetence and total denial of the truth of our porous borders needs to be a major part of his indictment.

Biden doesn’t care, and if his delusionary denial results in the death of even one more American, he needs to be held accountable.
