Biden’s Weakness On The World Stage Is Dangerous; One Month After Biden Tried His Hand at European Politics, US Military European Command Warns of Potential Crisis as Troops Begin Massing, and other Foreign Policy related stories

Biden’s Weakness On The World Stage Is Dangerous:
A series of embarrassing incidents in recent days shows that while the left may control the media narrative, it’s not fooling Xi Jinping or Vladimir Putin into thinking President Joe Biden is strong
Biden had a beyond-friendly interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, former press secretary to President Bill Clinton, on March 16 in which he allowed Stephanopoulos to lure him into calling Russian President Vladimir Putin a “killer” with “no soul.” It would be one thing if there were some purpose behind Biden’s hostile utterance about his Russian counterpart, but it didn’t appear tied to any strategic foreign policy goal.
Other than some largely symbolic sanctions on Moscow for the poisoning and wrongful imprisonment of Russian opposition politician Alexei Navalny, Biden’s response to the January resumption of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline to Germany, which the United States had succeeded in halting under the Trump administration, has been “half-hearted.” The Biden team says it just wants to move cautiously, but observers say if they wait any longer to act against Berlin and Moscow, it will be too late.
Putin took full advantage of the blunder. After vintage philosophical musings about how Biden may be projecting his own inadequacies, he said the United States has a dark history. He quickly challenged Biden to a public debate. He condescendingly said the sooner it could be done, the better, even if Biden needed a bit of rest and time to prepare. The White House declined the offer for such a public conversation, as Putin surely knew they would. --->READ MORE HERE

One Month After Biden Tried His Hand at European Politics, US Military European Command Warns of Potential Crisis as Troops Begin Massing:
“When you were asked, ‘What’s the greatest geopolitical threat facing America,’ you said Russia,” former President Barack Obama said, mocking Republican Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah during a 2012 presidential debate. “The Cold War’s been over for 20 years …”
People laughed at Romney’s “preposterous” notion then, including the former president, who added, “The 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back.”
But nine years later, now that President Joe Biden has fallen under Russian scrutiny for his administration’s significant funding of Ukrainian forces, we can only wonder if we are indeed headed for a second Cold War.
In early March, the Department of Defense announced a $125 million package for the Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative, which includes “training, equipment, and advisory efforts to help Ukraine’s forces preserve the country’s territorial integrity, secure its borders, and improve interoperability with NATO.” --->READ MORE HERE
