There’s no doubt that Joe Biden’s approach to foreign policy has been disastrous. The botched Afghanistan pullout highlighted that reality.
And now Joe Biden has blood on his hands after this tragedy in the Middle East.
There’s next to nothing of significance the Biden administration has done right on the international stage since he’s taken office.
His foreign policy has made America more unsafe than it was when he assumed the Oval Office.
And the same is true internationally.
Russia has no plans to back down from its war with Russia, China is knocking on the door of Taiwan, and terrorism in the Middle East is back on the rise.
Unfortunately, there’s no end in sight.
According to reports, the Biden administration confessed that an American citizen was killed in an attack in the Iraqi Kurdistan region that apparently involved the Iranians.
This comes after the Biden administration failed to reach negotiations with Iran after he promised to revive the failed 2015 Iran Deal from former President Barack Obama.
The Daily Wire reports:
The Washington Free Beacon noted that reports surfaced Wednesday claiming that an American had been killed after the rocket attack by “Iran-backed militants sponsored by the country’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC).”
A regional news organization identified the American citizen that was reportedly killed, but the State Department did not confirm the person’s identity, according to the Free Beacon.
The blunt truth is that Joe Biden is responsible for some of the tragedies that have taken place over the past year and a half.
The reason for that is Joe Biden, as President of the United States, is the one person who carries the most weight when it comes to diplomatic talks internationally.
He has utterly failed at that and we are seeing the consequences.
Iran’s growing radicalism is a consequence of Biden’s failures.
Earlier this year, Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) formed a Nuclear Corps Command to seemingly maintain secrecy on its nuclear affairs.
The Biden administration’s response has been to try to secure another “deal” with Iran mostly similar to the one Obama secured in 2015. But that deal only gave Iran cover.
During Trump’s administration, the Iran deal was scrapped and Iran was slapped with increased sanctions to force Iran to think twice about building any more nuclear capabilities.
And while the Biden administration recently announced more sanctions for anyone buying oil from Iran, the Biden admin’s pursuit of an Iran deal is only going to make it easier for Iran to stomach sanctions.
Trump’s former national security advisor, John Bolton, said that an Iran deal unfreezing billions of dollars in Iranian assets will not just put the Middle East at risk, but the rest of the world.
That’s partly because Russia has cozied up to the Middle Eastern actors in recent years.
All of this has been an utter disaster because of Joe Biden’s failed leadership. Hopefully in 2024 we get a President with the ability to defend America’s interests first.
