Biden Is No Wartime President
The media is calling Biden a wartime President. There are two reasons he is not. That appellation usually applies to a President in office with the country was in a war. At the moment we are not officially at war with anyone – at least not a shooting war.
It would be more realistic to call Biden “an appeasement President” or maybe “a war losing President.”
Biden is a continuation of President Obama’s oxymoronic policy of leading from behind. Biden was a staunch supporter of the policies that prematurely pulled troops out of Iraq – which resulted in the horrific rise of ISIS and the creation of the first califate in centuries. It resulted in the horrific deaths of tens of thousands of people. Fortunately, the Trump administration crushed it.
Biden was an advocate of the withdrawal of American forces in Iraq..
Biden was part of the Obama policies that promoted insurrection against Syrian despot Bashar al Asaad and then walked away – triggering the worst human, and most deadly, human migration in modern times (until Ukraine) and turning Syria into a durable anti-American state
Biden was a key player in the American reaction – or lack thereof — to Russia’s invasion and seizing of the Crimea portion of Ukraine. He was fully supportive of the Obama policy of letting Putin have the Crimea. There were not even sanctions.
And next, this so-called wartime President surrendered in Afghanistan in the worst possible way at the worst possible time. That is now a second nation on the global that is firmly in the hands of American enemies thanks to the Biden approach.
And now Biden is engaging in a variation of the leading-from-behind policy. He has been engaged for the past year in his own too-little-too-late policy regarding Ukraine. Although he promised he would “cripple” Russia if the Madman of Moscow invaded. Biden admitted later that he did not expect the threat of sanctions to stop the invasion. He was right for once.
Instead of hitting Putin prior to the invasion – as many experts suggested – he waited. Biden said that once Russian troops entered Ukraine, Putin would be hit with maximum sanctions. That was also not true. He has been slowly increasing the sanctions reluctantly. Biden seems to have been forced by events and public opinion to increase the sanctions on Russia – again too little and too late.
And now Biden is being cornered into cutting off purchases of Russian oil by the members of his own Party in Congress. Both Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi – and Republicans in Congress – led on that issue.
What most people mean by a “wartime President” is that leader who inspires a nation – the world – behind a WINNING strategy – one that creates a coalition of the good that ultimately defeats the evil. That is not Biden. He acquiesces.
In the case of Afghanistan, Biden undermined the good and gave way to the evil. Remember … none of our allied nations approved of the Biden surrender – but with America surrendering, they had no choice.
While Biden can boast of decades of experience in domestic and world affairs, he is self-victimized by a lack of a fundamental core understanding of the role of free-world leadership in a dangerously divided world – and a moral commitment to good over evil. Under his administration, the forces of evil are winning – almost consistently.
There are times, it seems that Biden is incapable of seeing any enemies of mankind and human freedom other than fossil fuel.
So, there ‘tis.
