When Joe Biden and Barack Obama set Middle East policy, America was entrenched in a ground war with terrorists. The pair inherited the conflict, knowing the Bush Administration eliminated much of the insurgent resistance. But putting politics ahead of sound foreign policy allowed ISIS to emerge as a powerful fighting force that secured land and formed a caliphate. America woke up after Obama famously called ISIS a “JV team” to another war. With Biden back in the White House, it doesn’t appear to be a short-sighted foreign policy that threatens stability. The facts point to the Biden Administration provoking another war in the Middle East.
President Biden has gone on the record stating he will return the U.S. to the failed Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), commonly known as the Iran Nuclear Deal. The agreement does not hinder the rogue regime from enriching uranium and gives Iran a sunset date to build nuclear weapons. Former President Donald Trump pulled the U.S. from the lopsided deal and applied maximum sanctions against the regime. These days, Iran ambassador to the U.N. Majid Takht-Ravanchi passes along ultimatums directed at Biden.
“The party that needs to change course is the United States and not Iran,” Ravanchi recently said.
Re-entering the Iran Nuclear Deal would result in unraveling the peace established by the Trump Administration. The former president’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, was instrumental in brokering the Abraham Accords. The agreements establish limited peace between long-standing U.S. ally Israel and Muslim countries such as the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain. The arrangements are the first break-throughs in more than 25 years.
Saudi Arabia also emerged as a vital ally after Mr. Trump brokered a series of deals that protected the country from Iranian aggression and allowed the purchase of U.S. military hardware. The Saudis appeared to be waiting for the new administration to roll out its foreign policy before deciding to join the Abraham Accords. But Biden recently halted the multi-billion-dollar arms deals that were part of a regional stability package.
“The (State) Department is temporarily pausing the implementation of some pending U.S. defense transfers and sales under Foreign Military Sales and Direct Commercial Sales to allow incoming leadership an opportunity to review,” a spokesman reportedly said.
Anti-peace Democrats such as New Jersey Rep. Tom Malinowski urge Biden to reverse course and treat Saudi Arabia as an enemy, despite commitments to peace and cooperation with the U.S. The Muslim nation has been under attack from Yemen insurgents funded and trained by Iran. The left-wing Congressman recently attempted to blame Saudi Arabia for the Iran-funded attacks.
“We encourage the administration to take quick, corrective action to withdraw U.S. support for the Saudi-led war in Yemen and to intensify U.S. diplomacy in support of a political settlement,” Rep. Malinowski wrote to Biden.
The Biden Administration appears to be inciting Iranian terrorism and destabilizing the region. That’s largely why the fake news media began slandering the arms deals, calling them “controversial” while avoiding facts about Middle East stability. The new administration appears more than willing to make the Saudis vulnerable to terror attacks.
Biden “has made clear that we will end our support for the military campaign led by Saudi Arabia in Yemen, and I think we will work on that in very short order,” Secretary of State Antony Blinken reportedly said.
In one week, Biden managed to unravel the stitching that holds Middle East peace and stability together. In the past, Democrats at least concealed their warmongering. Biden appears to be actively provoking war by alienating U.S. allies and supporting enemy Iran.
