Iran and Its Proxy Attacks: A Discussion About How the U.S. Should Respond

Updated: Feb 13

TOPIC: Iran's pivotal transformation post the Iranian Revolution in 1979, its support for proxy warfare, the nuanced challenges it presents to U.S. foreign policy, and how the U.S. should respond.



"The killing of the American troops is a Rubicon. You just cannot allow it to be crossed again."


  • The Iranian Revolution marked Iran's drastic shift from a beacon of modernity in the Middle East to a regime characterized by oppression and violence.

  • Iran's support for groups like Houthis, Hezbollah, and Hamas directly challenges U.S. interests and regional stability.

  • Recent killings of U.S. military personnel have prompted action, raising questions about the adequacy of the response and public acknowledgment by the Biden administration.

  • A decisive yet measured approach to the aggression, aimed to maintain global security and secure American interests without unnecessary escalation, is important.

  • The Biden administration's decision-making and communication strategies highlight ongoing concerns about U.S. foreign policy direction.

  • Biden has not confirmed that America's interests have been recaptured, refortified, and resolidified after we killed 29 rank-in-file members of the militias after they killed three U.S. military members.

  • Biden does not want to let his base know that he is defending American interests for political reasons.

  • Trump does not get enough credit for his diplomacy with North Korea, China, and Iran. He cut off the financial spickets and did not receive a lot of antagonism.
