President Joe Biden pledged a response after the attack on a U.S. base in Jordan that killed three American servicemen and injured at least 30 others. The attack raises the possibility of a direct conflict between the U.S. and Iran.

At an event Sunday in South Carolina, President Biden announced the U.S. would choose the time and place for its response.

“I’m asking for a moment of silence for all three of our fallen soldiers,” Biden told the gathering. After the pause, he said, “And we shall respond. God bless you all.”

The base served as a special operations facility to fight ISIS—the Islamic State. Iran-backed militias have attacked U.S. bases in Syria and Iraq more than 170 times since mid-October.

The American deaths raise the stakes dramatically in the region.

Former Israeli intelligence official Avi Melamed told CBN News, “It’s quite clear that the whole players in the region are actually looking to see what will be the United States reaction to that (attack). Needless to say, if there is not going to be any U.S. reaction, that is not going to contribute to the already declining image of the United States as a superpower.”

Israeli and U.S. conflicts against Iranian proxies are spread throughout the region, including Hezbollah in Lebanon, the Houthis in Yemen, who continue to attack shipping in and around the Red Sea, and Hamas in Gaza.

Melamed believes the source address for all the conflicts in the region is Iran.

He cautioned, “So what we see—in (the) Gaza Strip, in Lebanon, in Syria, in Iraq, in the Red Sea—at the end of the day, all the strings are leading to one in one location only and this is Tehran. This is the mullahs’ regime in Tehran. We have today a sample of the disaster, (their) vision and future that we, the Middle East and the world (will see) if the mullahs’ regime is not going to be restrained forcefully.”
