Biden's Feckless Foreign Policy - Obama/Carter Repeat

Joe Biden sees the world as he would like it to be not as it is.  The same was true with Obama and Carter to dangerous effect.  Obama and Carter left a world on fire and the United States weaker than before they started.   President Trump was far more clear eyed related to foreign policy and therefore had great achievements in advancing United States interests and peace particularly in the Middle East.  Biden's election led to rocket attacks by Hamas as a proxy of Iran as soon as he was elected.  

What Joe Biden does not understand about the Middle East is that Sunni Arabs are the good guys and Shia Muslims, Iran, who are Persians are the bad guys.  Other than Israel and maybe Iraq, all of these countries are run by dictators.   We would like them to be democracies; but that is not going to happen any time soon.  Trump clearly understood this dynamic and made no attempt to change it.  Instead, he convened a conference attended by 57 countries in Saudi Arabia to forge alliances that resulted in the Abraham Accords that pushed the Palestinian issue aside so that Israel could make peace with Sunni Arab countries.  Biden has screwed all of this up in just his first 6 months in office.  Biden is attempting to deal with Iran, which is a big mistake and has moved away from Saudi Arabia, another huge mistake.  The result will be a nuclear Iran, which will force Saudi Arabia to go nuclear and Israel to be even more blatant concerning its nuclear program.  Bidenistas just don't get it.  As Forest Gump used to say, "stupid is as stupid does".  

And, then there is China.  Trump was the first President to confront China, which resulted in the first phase of a half way decent trade deal.  Had Trump been re-elected, after dealing with Covid, Trump would have gone further with China to protect American interests and jobs.  Biden instead is owned lock stock and barrel by China as a result of Biden Crime family connections and bribes.  As such, Biden is selling out American interests and will do nothing to confront China.  Specific to Russia, Biden cancelled the Keystone Pipeline causing the loss of 47,000 US jobs and approved the Russia Pipeline to Germany, which again will cost thousands of US jobs and lost revenues to American companies.  This action was about as dumb as it gets. 

Joe Biden's feckless foreign policy is Obama and Carter all over again.   We know the end of the story because we have seen it before.  There will be more war in the Middle East, more illegal aliens invading our country, Afghanistan will be taken over by the Taliban, Europe will continue to pay less than there fair share to support NATO and China and Russia will grow stronger.  Biden will agree to trade deals that screw the American people sending more jobs to China and other countries.  It is back to the future in action.
