Biden Election Strategy: ‘Let’s Fight Three Wars at Once!’

By Ron Paul

President Joe Biden announced last week that the United States would be funding – and possibly fighting – three wars in three different parts of the world at the same time. It is an ambitious foreign policy for a president who doesn’t even seem to be able to express a coherent thought without the help of a teleprompter.

Nearly every word of Biden’s speech was untrue, including the preposterous suggestion that “American leadership is what holds the world together. American alliances are what keep us, America, safe.”

US interventionism in Ukraine for over ten years and in the Middle East for decades has brought those two regions to the brink of an explosion unlike anything seen before. And if that is not enough, Biden’s neocons are also determined to take us to war with China over Taiwan. The world is literally falling apart in front of us as Biden claims we are the only thing holding it together!

After a brutal attack on Israel by Hamas earlier this month, Israel declared war not just on the terrorists who attacked its territory, but on the entire population of Gaza itself. Israel’s policy of collective punishment – razing Gaza to the ground – has inflamed Muslims from the Middle East to Asia to Western capitals. The anger rages more fiercely than we have seen in decades, perhaps since the founding of Israel in 1948.

Yet instead of trying to help facilitate a ceasefire and a peaceful solution, Biden has poured gasoline onto the fire, sending two US carrier groups and at least 15,000 troops, while threatening war on Lebanon, Iran, and Syria if they intervene in Israel’s war on the Palestinians. What might Russia do if the US attacks Russian forces in Syria or Russia’s allies in Tehran?

Biden also repeated the line that “Israel has the right to defend itself.” While that may be true, it is not Israel defending itself. It’s the US government intervening to defend Israel. And as the entire Muslim world rages against Israel over the destruction of Gaza, how do we think they will feel about us as the financiers and facilitators of that destruction?

By dragging the United States into this war, President Biden has planted the seeds of innumerable 9/11-style blowback attacks on the US. Yet he has the audacity to claim that all of this is keeping us safe.

Recent polls show that most Americans disagree with Biden. A CBS/YouGov poll taken last week shows that the majority of Americans oppose sending weapons to Israel. His Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen assured us that “we can afford” to finance two wars because the US economy is doing “exceptionally well.” Maybe the American people know something Yellen and the elites do not.

As Biden demands another $105 billion to fund the wars in Ukraine, Gaza, and Taiwan, his speech seemed to have a touch of campaign rhetoric in it. “I’m told I was the first American [president] to enter a warzone not controlled by the United States military since President Lincoln,” he said in his speech. The statement is blatantly false, but he must believe it gives him an air of bravado.

They say that it is advantageous to be seen as a “wartime president” when elections roll around, but Joe Biden may have miscalculated the level of support he will get for being a “World-War-Three-time president.”

    Unfortunately, I believe there are quite a few who believe what he’s saying is true. I blame the whole lot of them in D.C. for not taking care of what needs to be done. They are ALL complicit no matter what they say. Is there really any hope for us as a society that has closed it’s eyes and ears to what is right ??

    An Occupier has no right to self defense from the occupied people. There are laws as regards occupations: one being the Hague Law of Occupation from 1907 if I remember correctly and then in 1970, a reiteration in the International Laws of Occupation. ICRC, and the Geneva Conventions also delineate what is allowable and according to the Geneva Convention, Palestine, as the occupied peoples have the “right to use whatever means necessary” in order to free themselves from occupation. Google them.

      Unfortunately we are dealing with two supreme exponents of the definition of Rogue States, first and foremost the United States of America country who violates its own constitution, after that background the sky is the limit. The US regime makes its own law, the law of the jungle at least for the immediate future since a certain implosion is inevitable. Once that America devours itself, the days of the Zionist Entity aka Israel, are numbered as a national entity.
      This imperial adventure in the Middle East will be the harbinger of doom for both regimes.

    This whole thing is a money laundering scheme just like Afghanistan.

    Biden is a senile old man who has a fixation on “alliances” which coincidentally make tremendous profits for the corporate military complex. His advisors have been living in their neocon think tanks so long they have lost touch with reality and believe their own propaganda. Blinken and company want a world war because, I can only suppose, they believe they will emerge victorious and wealthy. Netanyahu is a religious fanatic, a thug, and a war criminal with a nuclear weapons arsenal. What could possibly go wrong?
