Joe Biden will be heading to the Middle East later this month. He has made clear it is to secure Israel, meaning that he will push for Saudi recognition of the zionist entity. Saudi Arabia’s de facto ruler, Mohammad bin Salman is desperate for rehabilitation following his involvement in the gruesome murder of Jamal Khashoggi that made him an international pariah.
Saudi Arabia’s de facto ruler Mohammad bin Salman (MbS) refused to take a phone call from US President Joe Biden because he has called him a “pariah”. Biden wants the Saudis and Emiratis to increase oil production because of sanctions on Russian oil and gas. How long can MbS hold out against Biden?
In his June 26 meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, US President Joe Biden attempted to revive the Cold War mentality but it is likely to cost America dearly. The world has changed considerably in the last 30 years.
While announced to much fanfare that US troops would be out of Afghanistan by September 11, US President Joe Biden left out whether the 18,000 mercenaries euphemistically called “contractors”, operating in Afghanistan would also go. The Taliban are not amused.
A new (even if rather old) face in the White House has led to the mistaken belief among some people that the US would return to normalcy now. Apart from some cosmetic changes, America’s policy of belligerence, militarism and exploitation is unlikely to change.
While most people have heaved a huge sigh of relief at Trump’s departure, reposing too much faith in Joe Biden would be a mistake. His record shows he is pro-war and a hardcore Zionist. He may even initiate a destructive war at the behest of the military-industrial-banking complex.
