In the first military action of his Presidency, Joe Biden orders an airstrike on Syria which results in backlash from Congressional Democrats.

In the news this week, the passing of Vernon Jones marks another milestone, while Johnson & Johnson rolls out an all-new, one-shot COVID-19 vaccine. Political controversy is afoot as well, with several claims of sexual misconduct being alleged against New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.

However, marking a significant moment early in President Biden’s administration, a recent airstrike on Syria carried about by the new Commander in Chief has left many members of Congress questioning whether it was justified, and why congressional approval was not obtained beforehand. Although Biden followed the action with a letter to Congress, some top members of the Senate haven’t even been briefed on the matter yet, raising questions about the ongoing issue of military power in the United States. Meanwhile, former President Donald Trump spoke at CPAC over the weekend, confirming that he would not be forming a new party, and thus securing his position as the leader of the GOP. We weigh in on these, and other issues this week on Middle Theory.
