WTF is Wrong With the US!?!?

Ok let me understand this, US troops where attacked by Iran in Jordan, so the US bombs Syria and Iraq?

U.S. military forces struck more than 85 targets, hitting facilities such as command and control operations, intelligence centers, rockets and missiles, and drone storage sites, according to the U.S. Central Command.

“Our response began today. It will continue at times and places of our choosing,” President Joe Biden said in a statement. “The United States does not seek conflict in the Middle East or anywhere else in the world. But let all those who might seek to do us harm know this: If you harm an American, we will respond.”

Am I the only one who thinks that this is insane? If you “respond” in countries that are NOT involved is this not an escalation and an invitation to a wider conflict?
