NYT: Biden told Netanyahu ‘if you launch a big attack on Iran, you’re on your own’
By News Editors // Jul 05, 2024

Is this the real reason the media has turned on President Biden?

(Article by Chris Menahan republished from InformationLiberation.com)

From New York Times, "Biden's Lapses Are Said to Be Increasingly Common and Worrisome":

Aides present in the Situation Room the night that Iran hurled a barrage of missiles and drones at Israel portrayed a president in commanding form, lecturing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu by phone to avoid a retaliatory escalation that would have inflamed the Middle East. "Let me be crystal clear," Mr. Biden said. "If you launch a big attack on Iran, you're on your own."

Mr. Netanyahu pushed back hard, citing the need to respond in kind to deter future attacks. "You do this," Mr. Biden said forcefully, "and I'm out." Ultimately, the aides noted, Mr. Netanyahu scaled back his response.

It's incredible to watch how the media went from shilling Biden to demanding he step aside.

The idea the debate was the catalyst for the media to turn on him is just laughable as Biden has been in terrible shape for years now.

As a reminder, Trump got the most positive media coverage of his entire presidency when he did the Israel Lobby's bidding and bombed Syria.

This is the same situation now with Biden but in reverse.

The NYT has more:

Mr. Biden and his top national security officials were in the Situation Room for hours [the night Iran attacked Israel in April], bracing for the attack, which came around midnight. Biden was updated in real time as the forces he ordered into the region began shooting down Iranian missiles and drones. He peppered leaders with questions throughout the response.

After it was over, and almost all of the missiles and drones had been shot down, Mr. Biden called Mr. Netanyahu to persuade him not to escalate. "Take the win," Mr. Biden told the prime minister, without reading from a script or extensive notes, according to two people in the room. In the end, Mr. Netanyahu opted for a much smaller and proportionate response that effectively ended the hostilities.

Israel's "lame" attack on Iran was a major turning point, as John Mearsheimer noted in May, because Israel's deterrence strategy depends on escalation dominance (i.e. if you hit us we will hit you back ten times harder).
