That is the important thing known use of armed forces power since Biden took administrative center.
The strikes killed no now not up to 22 of us, a mission which Pentagon press secretary John Kirby called “proportionate” and defensive.”
Let’s glance at a few of the media headlines, all of which are obvious.
