Joe Biden Makes Another, Horrible Foreign Policy Decision – RedState

My younger brother used to tell lies about his achievements when he was little.

Why? Because as the youngest of five siblings — all of whom had achieved some success in different ways in school — he felt insecure, not yet having grown into his own. He would brag about his insecurity to cover up that sense of being inadequate. He became more mature, more independent, and was capable of achieving things all on his own as a teenager.

But Joe Biden never did.

He’s always suffered from this problem of being wrong, and knowing it. It is the reason he lies so often about himself. It’s why he lied about his background and had to drop out of his first run for president in the 1988 race. It’s why, even to this day, he’s always creating stories out of whole cloth about his achievements — to make himself seem smarter and/or more heroic then he actually is. It’s why he’s always insisting he’s right, even when he’s demonstrably wrong, as on Afghanistan. Because, to admit he’s wrong would go to that severely insecure place that he’s never seemed able to conquer.

Unfortunately at the base of it all, he’s still that guy who’s been wrong about foreign policy for the last four decades, as Barack Obama’s Secretary of Defense Robert Gates said.

He’s the guy everyone made fun of until he had to be the Democratic standard bearer in 2020 for the Democrats to grab back power. Politico used this description of Biden to describe him in 2009. This was after Biden made remarks that put the Obama administration in serious trouble regarding the swine influenza virus. “These sorts of comments are what the Obama administration fears from Biden, who after more than three decades in Washington is known for making gaffes.”

Joe Biden’s foreign policy decisions have been terrible since his election.

He’s given strength to Russia with his decision on the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, giving them a hold over the EU and hurting our own energy position in the world. He managed to offend France so deeply they pulled their ambassador — and he didn’t even know what was going on, according to his climate czar, John Kerry. His worst disaster so far — Afghanistan — cost 13 American service members and at least 170 Afghans their lives. He abandoned Americans and Afghan allies in Afghanistan and claimed he would save them by keeping troops there. They’re still there and he’s off on vacation in Delaware, not a care in the world.

Now, he’s made another decision that’s fraught with problems, just like his failure to pursue proper action in Afghanistan.

Biden has lifted sanctions on two Iranian entities, the Mammut Industrial group and its subsidiary Mammut Diese, involved in Iran’s missile program — sanctions that were put in place by the President Donald Trump to prevent Iran from being able to develop or use a nuclear weapon. Biden made this move as Iran is believed to have enough nuclear fuel for a bomb.

In a statement that seems typical of the Biden Administration’s to say the opposite of the truth, a spokesperson claimed that relieving the sanctions does “not reflect any change in U.S. government sanctions policy towards Iran.”

“They have nothing to do with JCPOA negotiation efforts,” the statement said. “The United States will continue to counter Iran’s destabilizing activities, including through implementation of our sanctions.”

The report noted that the Biden administration did not address whether the entities had stopped providing support for Iran’s missile program.

In other words, this has everything to do with the fact this is what Iran wants to re-activate the Iran Deal — that thing that provided us nothing, but that the Obama/Biden Administration debased themselves over and now Biden is desperate to put back in place.

This, despite the fact that Iran hasn’t complied with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) reporting requirements, including allowing international inspectors to monitor its nuclear activities. Biden will give them everything they ask for, much like Obama.

Experts have warned that Iran is, if they haven’t already, dangerously close to having enough nuclear fuel to build a nuclear weapon.

Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett warned at a recent speech at the U.N. that Iran’s nuclear weapons program was “at a critical point.”

“All red lines have been crossed. Inspections — ignored. All wishful thinking — proven false,” Bennett said. “Iran is currently violating the IAEAs safeguard agreements — and it’s getting away with it. They harass inspectors and sabotage their investigations — and they’re getting away with it. They enrich Uranium to the level of 60 percent, which is only one step short of weapons-grade material — and they’re getting away with it.”

“Evidence which clearly proves Iran’s intentions for nuclear weapons in secret sites in Turquzabad, Teheran & Marivan — is ignored,” he continued. “Iran’s nuclear program has hit a watershed moment.

You can make mistakes in foreign policy, and still survive. Nuclear weapons isn’t one of these things. Biden, however, is proving himself wrong once more.
