4. Biden is in a very tight situation. He did not choose this.

He needs the votes of Israel supporters and Gazan supporters. (I try to be both.)

He doesn't have the choice to just stay out of it.

But, many are clearly on one side or another, and willing to blame Biden. Many want to see others on the other side die.

It is a seeming paradox that we send Israel weapons, but ask them to not bomb Gaza or not bomb too much.

The most obvious point is that if Biden loses to Trump (or another Republican), both Gaza and Ukraine will be done. And the whole world will be further along the slippery slope sliding into autocracies.

Biden (and his administration) is what stands between us and Putin (and his merry band of Republican political cannibals).
