The Downfall of America’s Deterrence

Regardless of one’s position on how to act against Putin’s invasion of Ukraine (which marks one month today), there is an underlying problem that is easily identifiable by most experts: the U.S. government is not exercising clear leadership and its ability to deter enemies has fallen sharply with Biden’s arrival.

Many of his actions come too late, such as seeking alternatives to Russian oil supplies, imposing strong sanctions, or traveling to Brussels to meet with allies. Biden’s speeches and diplomacy have also been full of mistakes, in most of its interventions it simply reveals all its next steps. Most importantly, this admin’s tone gives the impression that it is seeking all it can do is protect itself, but never stop or attack the enemy.

On Monday, Biden warned that Putin would be exploring options for cyberattacks against the U.S., only to later state that it is “a critical moment to accelerate our work to improve domestic cybersecurity and bolster our national resilience.” Imagine the look on the Russian tyrant’s face when he listens to the president warn American businesses to prepare for Russian cyberattacks instead of sending a strong message to Putin and assuring Americans that they will not be attacked…

The president does not seem to be very well advised and that hurts the entire West and, of course, also the Ukrainian people who continue to cry out for help while being bombed in front of the eyes of the world.
