Iran's Proxies Are Out of Control
Briefly

Three American soldiers were killed in a drone attack on their living quarters in Jordan, near the country's borders with Iraq and Syria. The attack was claimed by pro-Iran Iraqi Shiite militias. The Biden administration has blamed 'radical Iran-backed militant groups,' but has not directly implicated Iran in ordering the strike. Republican senators and others have called for strikes on Iranian territory in response to the attack.
President Joe Biden quickly blamed 'radical Iran-backed militant groups.'
The killing of American soldiers in the drone attack has crossed an important red line in the shadow war between Iran and the United States. In the past, both countries have adhered to certain unwritten rules, such as not killing each other's soldiers. However, this attack marks a departure from those norms. The Iranian leadership is now facing scrutiny and demands for retaliation from the United States.
We certainly don't seek a war, and frankly we don't see Iran wanting to seek a war with the United States," the Pentagon spokesperson Sabrina Singh said.
