On matters of foreign policy, Joe Biden has a clear history of ineptitude. As former Defense Secretary Robert Gates put it, Joe Biden has been wrong about “nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades.”
What makes matters worse is the apparent growing problem of Biden’s mental and physical decline, fueled by the overt weakness of his style of leadership — whether it be avoiding the questions of journalists or simply struggling to form basic sentences.
Combined with the celebrated return of the Obama-era globalist diplomacy of feckless apologies and denial, the United States is, once again, viewed as weak by our enemies.
And the vultures are beginning to circle.
During the first high-level talks between the United States and China under the Biden administration, former Obama foreign policy disaster, Antony Blinken, was seemingly bulled over by the Chinese delegation. Accepting no culpability for the COVID-19 pandemic, the Chinese officials deflected all criticism and redirected it at the Western world, alongside veiled and open threats of consequential action.
