Biden Changes Path on Foreign Policy

This is pretty simple. There are two power sources in the Middle East – Saudi Arabia and Iran. You can align with one or the other, but never both. By moving away from Saudi Arabia, Biden is necessarily aligning more with Iran.

The US is to end its support for offensive operations by its allies in Yemen, which has been devastated by a six-year war in which more than 110,000 people are believed to have died.

[…]

The Biden administration had already put a temporary halt on arms sales to Saudi Arabia and the UAE.

[…]

The US will raise the cap on refugee admissions from 15,000 to 125,000 for the fiscal year.

The withdrawal of US troops from Germany will be frozen and forces will remain at their current level of about 36,000. Under Mr Trump, the US was going to reduce its presence by 12,000, with about 5,600 to be deployed elsewhere in Europe.

    Awful. Just awful.

    Liberals like Nord cheer.

    I agree with Senile Joe and Yeman. We really don’t need to be there.
    As far as the refugees, in this day of the Chinese virus, stupid idea.
    And we don’t need to be in Germany at all.

    The Saud/Iran split is a religious one, with Iran having the more ‘vigorous’ form of Islam.

    Not likely Biden* has a clue about that, but neither did Bush. Ignorance of what IS important in the M.E. abounds.

    More evidence that the Chinese virus is a hoax:
    “The move has raised two concerns. Unlike those arriving at airports from abroad, illegal immigrants do not arrive with a negative COVID test and CBP does not test unless symptoms are obvious. So even though officials know nothing about the migrants’ travel or medical history, they’re being dropped off at the nearest bus station and could be spreading the virus.”
    Stupid liberals believe that the Chinese virus and climate change are real.

    Speaking of Epic failures… I’d love to see Epic Failure Leroy defend this. How can anyone think that allowing undocumented and illegal immigrants in is a good thing while we’ve been locked down for almost a year now – no football games, no hockey, no baseball, no restaurants, no concerts, no Thanksgiving, no Christmas… test the shit out of legal travelers, and just let illegal ones go.

    Come on Leroy, step up, tell us how Biden is curing Wuhan Virus with his policies. I’ll wait a while, but my gut tells me that you won’t even post here, and if you do it will be nothing more than a snarky, meaningless, troll post. History will repeat itself here again.

    It’s not that complicated. Iran pays better.

    In case you were snoozing, we had a regular NFL season, Super Bowl is Sunday. Now how did you miss a whole 16 game season, and playoffs? Epic fail on your part, j.

    Jason, you’re right. Herbert sociopath could not answer the question.

    You see, Herbert sociopath Le Roi, like Senile Joe, believe in science until it doesn’t fit their beliefs.
    Then, the hell with science.

    Lol Owen, two power sources, Iran and Saudi Arabia? What about the other countries in the middle east?

    Turkey and Israel don’t matter?

    P.S. Remember not to feed the trolls.

    Perfect Leroy, just like I predicted.

    but my gut tells me that you won’t even post here, and if you do it will be nothing more than a snarky, meaningless, troll post. History will repeat itself here again.

    History sure did. You’re proud of the puzzle you put together this week. The box said 5-7 years, and you did it in only one week!

    When I started posting here, about a year ago, Le Roi Herbert Sociopath would make some posts that actually had some merit to the comments. When the pandemic hit, Le Roi Herbert sociopath then went off the rails. He made some comments that seemed reasonable at the time, but more often, he would also lie to make himself look like a victim. Like when he supposedly lost money on airline tickets for a family reunion, even though it was against the law.
    Then his rants became mostly President Trump bad and not much more.
    Since January 20 and President Trump out of office he has become just a lying, drooling, troll who has nothing to offer. He has nothing to offer, does not provide substance to any conversation and refuses to engage in debate.
    A typical liberal troll.
