How has Joe Biden done on foreign policy issues? Not great, so far.
First there was the Colonial Pipeline hack, a hack that shut down America’s ability to move certain petroleum products to a large degree and to which Biden responded by doing…nothing of note. Don’t think Putin didn’t notice his contemptible weakness.
Then there was the disastrous, humiliating rout from Afghanistan. During that rout, we left billions in equipment behind and Trump called the key general involved in that, General Milly, “a F***ing idiot.” So that was a disaster, and another example of America’s weakness under slow Joe.
And now things have gotten the worst they’ve been in a long time. Russia has invaded the Ukraine, Belarus seems poised to intervene, foreign leaders supposedly aren’t taking Biden’s calls, and the dollar as a reserve currency seems like it’s on its way out.
Looks like former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates was right when he said Biden “has been wrong on nearly every major foreign-policy and national-security issue over the past four decades” and that Obama was right when he said “Don’t underestimate Joe’s ability to fuck things up.”
