Our nation has the most advance defense system on the planet, the best-equipped military, and the largest budget to protect both the homeland and free world. Yet all these facts are of little use without a leader capable of enforcing U.S. international policy.
The Afghanistan debacle was the first sign of a series of tragedies that would continue to accumulate throughout the Biden administration. After that embarrassing withdrawal — which was decided by the almost octogenarian president who left billions of dollars in military equipment to a terrorist regime — the dominoes began to fall: Putin announced his invasion of Ukraine. This wasn’t a bluff, he carried it through as there was no threat or deterrence strategy to stop him. Since February, Russian troops have been murdering Ukrainians. Biden’s only response has been to send money to the Eastern European country without any accountability.
However, the resounding failure has not stopped there. China and Iran now feel emboldened to send constant threats, not only to the U.S. officials , but to every single American citizen. Xi Jinping himself “warned” Biden not to play with fire because of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s potential visit to Taiwan (something the island’s press takes for granted). Chinese Army spokesmen also threatened retaliation, and Biden officials cannot find the right words to assert U.S. hegemony.
In addition to China, even the impoverished Iranian regime has dared to make threats against the United States. Yesterday, an Iranian spokesman declared that they had the technical resources to create an atomic bomb. Hours later, it was revealed that videos shared by channels linked to the Revolutionary Guard threatened to turn New York into “hellish ruins“.
Since Biden came to power the whole world has lost respect for the United States. We now face constant military, diplomatic and political defeats. The only thing that the Democratic government achieves is to strengthen the enemy narratives and make the whole world feel that the World Order that the United States has led in the last century has been lost or is about to be lost.
For the sake of humanity Americans should not allow China, Russia and Iran get away with this, and the only way for that to happen is to bring to Congress and the White House competent people concerned with economics and foreign relations, not woke agendas that ridicule America to the world.
