Pressure Swells for Biden to Strike after Attacks Kill 3 US Soldiers

For the men and women stationed at Tower 22 in the Middle East, it probably feels like they’re serving at the end of the world. Surrounded by miles of desert near the borders of Syria, Iraq, and Jordan, the word “isolated” doesn’t begin to describe the tiny outpost. With just 350 Army and Air Force members rotating in and out of the base, no one would have expected the base to be a target — until now.

On Sunday, tragedy rocked the small detachment when, in a fatal mix-up, U.S. soldiers confused an incoming drone as one of our own. By the time they realized their mistake, the enemy vehicle started unleashing lethal force on the troops’ living quarters, killing three Georgians and wounding dozens of others in a horrifying escalation of the conflict across the region.
