“One of the weirdest things happening in the world today is the way US officials keep insisting that they are not at war with the groups they’re dropping bombs on in the middle east, and that they do not seek conflict with the people they are attacking. … Pentagon Press Secretary Pat Ryder told reporters on Monday that the US is not at war with the group. … The day before, National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan told CNN’s State of the Union that ‘the United States also is not looking for a wider war in the middle east,’ even as he refused to rule out direct attacks within Iran, and even as the US-backed war on Gaza has expanded to US bombing campaigns in Yemen, Syria and Iraq.” (02/09/24)
