    Questions are swirling over how President Biden will respond to a deadly attack on U.S. forces in Jordan. But several GOP lawmakers have made their opinion clear: Strike back.

    Republicans in Congress are ramping up pressure on the Biden administration to strike Iran in retaliation after three U.S. troops were killed and dozens were injured in a drone attack that officials have linked to Tehran on Sunday in Jordan.

    The eventual U.S. response to the attack has raised concerns about escalating conflict in the region, which is already growing as the Israel-Hamas war continues.

    Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin on Monday vowed action during an appearance at the Pentagon before a meeting with NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg.

    “The president and I will not tolerate attacks on U.S. forces and we will take all necessary actions to defend the U.S. and our troops,” he said.
