The catastrophic presidency of Joe Biden signifies the West’s ultimate capitulation

The assassination of Alexei Navalny in Siberia ought to serve as a sobering reminder to all democratic nations. Not every nation plays kindly. Some, such as Putin’s Russia, engage in extremely vicious play. And while we in democracies should certainly adhere to our own standards, the despotisms and tyrannies of the world should be incapable of outsmarting or outflanking us.
However, precisely that is the current state of affairs.
Putin is not merely endeavoring to consolidate his authority within Russia and advance his forces further into Ukraine. It is the case that the free states appear to be in jeopardy while the unfree states appear to be advancing globally.

The “revolutionary” Islamist regime in Iran is effectively pursuing a multifaceted conflict in the Middle East. Its proxy operations in Gaza, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, and Yemen pose a security threat to Israel.
Its Houthi auxiliaries, the most recent target of admiration for the “pro-Palestine” movement in the United Kingdom, are targeting American and British vessels in the Red Sea. Even further, additional auxiliaries have attempted to execute a lethal assault against American personnel within Jordan. With the exception of Israel’s almost finished conflict against Hamas, this has elicited answers characterized by a minimal amount of precise targeting rather than any substantial deterrence.
President Biden is “absolutely nothing like” Senator Joe Biden stated: Representative Greg Murphy
Consider what lies beyond this region. The Qatari government is purporting to function as a “broker” when, in reality, it is contributing to the issue. Qatar, which has been accused of financing terrorism, has also been the guest of prominent figures including the Taliban and the leaders of Hamas.
The Gulf state enjoys acting as if it were an impartial arbitrator between the parties. Indeed, it functions akin to a mob leader who, upon approaching your residence while feigning benevolence, is scarcely holding back a heavily armed thug who is standing behind them. “Your society’s pleasant; it would be a disgrace if anything were to occur to it.” Qatar is convinced that this criminal tactic will suffice due to the billions of pounds it has invested in the United Kingdom. It appears to do so with the conviction that the British, more so than the majority of Western societies, are readily and inexpensively trajectories to purchase, and that our destitute government and institutions will submit to the offer of cash.
As of yet, no high-ranking official in the British government has explicitly stated that if it is possible to seize the vessels of oligarchs associated with Putin, then it is also possible to seize the assets, including department stores, of the despotic leaders in Gulf states. It would be prudent for individuals with an interest in colonialism or enslavement to consider Qatar, that delicate statelet.
China must also understand that the United States and Great Britain are for sale. Our governments have entangled us so firmly in China’s financial web that we are also gravely vulnerable domestically. Were the CCP to invade Taiwan in the coming months or years, the phones in our pockets would be obsolete, as Taiwan is the leading supplier of the processors that power our communications and, by extension, a significant portion of our daily lives.
However, the West, under the leadership of Joe Biden, is exhibiting abhorrent frailty rather than dominance or even deterrence on each of these fronts.
This week, Lord Cameron was in Washington attempting futilely to convince Republicans to maintain funding for Ukraine, having previously proposed that the West reward Palestinian terror by granting the Palestinians greater recognition. In an effort to coerce Republicans into providing additional funding to Ukraine, he made allusion to Adolf Hitler’s appeasement. This was not well received in the least.
After the meeting, an ally of Donald Trump’s (Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, who admittedly leans towards the “out there”), stated vehemently that Cameron “needs to be concerned about his own nation, and he can frankly kiss my rear end.” A reminder that British foreign secretaries attempting to lecture the leading party of the world’s superpower ought to do so with the utmost caution—perhaps not the most diplomatic language.
The essential element absent from this, however, is the superpower itself. Amid President Biden’s tenure, the United States has consistently been perceived as retreating from international affairs.
This position is shared by some Democrats and Republicans, although for quite different reasons. Democrats are concerned that their party has lost all credibility on the issue of foreign policy, especially in light of the disastrously inept withdrawal from Afghanistan. Concurrently, an increasing proportion of Republicans hold the view that prioritizing the resolution of the southern border crisis over allocating billions of dollars in aid to considerably more violent border crises in other continents is prudent for the United States.
However, underlying the increasing unease is a straightforward fact: the superpower’s ability to effectively employ its military superiority remains ambiguous.
Similar to Westminster, the Israeli ally is currently being undermined by the government in Washington, which asserts that its actions in Gaza are excessive and that “too many” civilians have been slain in the region. Indeed, in a recent House of Lords debate, historian Lord Roberts of Belgravia stated that nothing could be further removed from the truth.
Notwithstanding our reluctance to believe Hamas’s own casualty figures, the ratio of terrorist casualties to civilian casualties in Gaza remains comparatively modest. Although some may consider any loss of life to be an excessive amount, this is combat. Gaza was thrust into a state of conflict by Hamas as a result of its invasion of Israel.
The fundamental issue with abstaining from supporting Israel’s victory in Gaza is that the conflict is not solely about Hamas. It involves the destruction of one of Iran’s regional proxies. The continued belief of the British and American administrations that Iran can be “brought in from the cold” with sufficient diplomatic affection and financing is a fallacy. In recent years, the British and American administrations have jointly transferred billions of dollars in funding to Tehran.
Individuals who are curious as to why the Houthis in Yemen, similar to the terrorists in Gaza, Lebanon, and Syria, are so well-armed need look no further. Due to the Democrats and Conservatives committing a calamitous strategic error, the revolutionary Islamic government in Iran is more confident than ever.
We shall observe in the coming months whether either nation possesses the capability to rectify this error. However, one thing is certain: nothing can go in a positive direction in the Middle East, Ukraine, or Taiwan if the leading democracies of the world are perceived as feeble, in disarray, or as pursuing policies that have been manifestly unsuccessful.
The crux of this issue is the dearth of leadership exhibited by the White House. Although Russia has stabilized its economy in preparation for war, China persists in conducting military drills, and Iranian proxies launch missiles throughout the region, the British and American armies face significant challenges in recruiting personnel. These difficulties may be attributed to our erroneous belief that “representation,” “diversity,” and other politically correct slogans should take precedence in our armed forces.
Our satisfaction with the tranquility in the West has prevented us from recognizing the folly of these policies. Such policies are exclusive to a time of extravagant, unnatural tranquility. The autocracies and Islamist authoritarian regimes across the globe have recognized this error and capitalized on it. It is certainly time for us to see them through as well.
