We are living at the end of an era. It is true that history is transparent; fluid, while we are living it, even for the most prescient people, and that it is difficult to understand the implications of our era looking to the future. It is more difficult to pinpoint...
China, North Korea, and Iran Will Challenge Joe Biden
Biden spent the first few days of his presidency negating as many of Trump’s achievements as possible through an obscene flood of unread Executive Orders. This will create incredible damage upon the American people as the Biden Administration unleashes these new EOs. And the real danger in all of this is that the Fake News is deliberately not sharing any of the impacts of these actions with the American people. Biden continues to get a free pass from the corrupted media elites.
I mentioned unread because it is ironic how every country on Earth acts in its own interests except the USA’s new president and a large segment of the American population who think it is racist, selfish, unethical, and xenophobic to put America First.
We are now seeing the early signs of America’s adversaries testing the newly incoming Biden Administration. Biden has never been known as a strong foreign policy mind. In fact, Former Defense Secretary Robert Gates slammed Joe Biden in his book with the following statement:
“I think he has been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades.”
Gates stated on January 13, 2014, in an interview with NPR: “On foreign policy, Joe Biden was against aid for Vietnam, said the fall of the Shah was “a step forward” for human rights in Iran, opposed Reagan’s defense build-up and voted against the first Gulf War.”
Much of the spotlight early on in the administration has been placed on domestic policy and economic issues, with climate change at the center of many of Biden’s policies. As foreign policy begins to heat up⏤Biden will be tested by the Axis of Evil: China, North Korea, and Iran. Here is my summary on many of the hot buttons Biden will face:
No matter how much Trump pushed the Chinese Communists during his four years – in defense of American interests – economically, militarily, and politically, they did not respond with serious physical or political threats or confrontations even in their area of the Pacific Ocean.
Since Biden was pronounced president-elect, their tune changed completely. They are threatening the Taiwan Chinese people with invasion to incorporate them against their will, just as they had done with Hong Kong.
After all, the Chinese under Mao Zedong invaded, occupied, and literally attempted to destroy the heritage, culture, and history of the Tibetan people who are not Chinese.
They have recently made threats against India. Most Southeast Asian countries such as Viet Nam, the Philippines, Japan, and South Korea fear the Chinese encroachment upon their land and sea assets but were more comfortable with Trump’s strong approach.
China’s economic clout increased its influence in Africa, Middle East, and South America enormously. They have close relationships with the Ayatollahs of Iran, politically and economically detrimental to the USA.
China will test Biden’s administration to the full and will exploit every single weakness.
North Korea exists only because of the power and influence of the Communist Chinese who supported their creation after WWII and especially at the end of the Korean War in 1953.
Kim Jong Un or any of his predecessors would not have existed without the enormous economic, military, scientific, and political support of China.
For the whole of the last year of Trump, Kim had been quiet. This changed – once again – the instant Biden was declared president-elect. Kim has been saber-rattling since then.
North Korea had been and continues to be one of the foremost supporters of the Ayatollahs’ terrorist regime in their quest for Nuclear weapons and the missile technologies needed for their delivery.
It was North Korea that was helping the construction of a nuclear reactor for Syria that Israel demolished in 2007.
When Biden shows weakness in confronting him and China, it is not impossible that South Korea and or Japan may decide to go Nuclear since they have both the technology and the finances to do so.
The most dangerous and contentious issue that Biden has to address very shortly are the outrageous threats and demands made by the terrorist Ayatollahs of Iran that Biden must return to the Nuclear agreements that Trump discarded that allows them to be a nuclear power within a few years.
Biden wants to negotiate with the Ayatollahs, although their utterances and records prove their intention is to go nuclear and ballistic no matter what. They have been breaking every article of faith they have already signed.
Please be aware that during the four years of Trump, all the threats and provocations made by the Ayatollahs avoided the blatant killing of a single American soldier by their forces, even after the termination of their foremost terror organizer Qasem Soleimani. Not once did they confront the US navy in the gulf – unlike the humiliation they meted out to the USA under Obama, Biden, and Kerry – because they had absolutely no doubt that Trump would exact a horrendous price from them if they had.
The Obama-Iran JCPOA (The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action) was not only opposed at the time by Israel but also by most of the Sunni Arabs of the Arabian Peninsula because of their mortal fear from Shia Iran’s intention to overthrow them. In fact, under U.S. law, the JCPOA is a non-binding political commitment.
As the records prove, the accord did not lead to a good-faith relationship with Iran. It did not empower moderates among the Ayatollahs or allowed for further meaningful cooperation. Not for a minute did it in any way retard Iran’s pathways to a nuclear weapon. On the contrary, from 2015 onward, Iran kept increasing her support for her regional proxies and repeatedly deceiving the IAEA inspectors.
Since not a single leader of any country on Earth nor in the UN ever stood up to condemn the repeatedly and publicly declared genocidal intent of a nuclear Iran vis a vis Israel for the last forty years, Israel knows very well – as had invariably been the case – that she stands alone to defend herself at all costs.
The aggressive and bellicose statements emanating from the Ayatollahs regime have been increasing in pitch daily since they realized that Trump would no longer remain President. They are threatening the destruction of Tel Aviv and Haifa if Israel defends herself.
In the recent extraordinary speech by the IDF Chief of Staff, Lt General Aviv Kohavi, at the Institute for National Security Studies think tank; he denounced the incoming American president’s foreign policy plans to again talk to the Ayatollahs about JCPOA.
Such remarks are normally left to politicians, not the head of the military – a position that is meant to remain as far from politics as possible. He, therefore, added for clarification, “The government will, of course, be the one to decide if they should be used. But these plans must be on the table, in existence and trained for”.
He also made it crystal clear that Israel is looking at several military options to take out some of Iran’s nuclear assets. As far as the Israelis are concerned, Iran’s rhetoric is not a matter of semantics; it is a threat to their very existence and therefore is taking heed.
In the meantime, Biden is adding fuel to the fire by reconsidering whether or not to supply the billions of dollars’ worth of arms agreements with Saudi Arabia and other Gulf states because of the following utterly lame and insane excuse – among others – that Democrat Chris Murphy used “The weapons we sold to Saudi Arabia and UAE have been used to kill schoolchildren, transferred to extremist militias, and fuelled a dangerous arms race in the Middle East.”
Really? What about the weapons supplied by Iran to the Shia Houthis in Yemen? To Hezbollah in Lebanon? Hamas in Gaza? Are they not slaughtering women and children? What about the unambiguous threats by all the top leaders of Iran to all the Sunni Gulf peoples? Biden is only following in the misguided footsteps of Obama, who always sided with Iran and the Muslim Brotherhood against Israel and the Gulf states.
By the way, not a single American media is ringing the alarm bells informing their citizens that the Ayatollahs’ tentacles have reached the USA’s backyard in Mexico and Venezuela. They are converting to Shia Islam, tens of thousands of Latinos in the heart of Catholic Latin America, in the prison systems, mosques and madrassas. Anyone waking up?
All that Biden is doing is making it plain that not a single ally of the USA can depend on her for protection. They will all turn to other powers or to their own to defend themselves with the certainty that more countries will attempt to go nuclear as soon as practicable. Under these conditions, states will take the law into their own hands, and Biden’s decisions will cause the forthcoming conflict.
The drums of war are beating very loudly, and only the timing is in doubt at the moment.
