It’s no secret that the United States is facing an array of threats from foreign nations, including Russia and China.
As tensions between the U.S. and these two countries continue to rise, it’s becoming increasingly clear that Joe Biden’s handling of these threats has been weak and ineffective.
Recent reports have revealed that the Russian buildup of naval assets is far more expansive than just the Black Sea and the Mediterranean, and includes seas surrounding the United States.
This is concerning news, especially when it comes to the deployment of nuclear-capable submarines in the Severodvinsk class which have been spotted off the coasts of the U.S.
“They just moved subs, their first [Severodvinsk submarine] into the Pacific,” U.S. Air Force Gen. Glen VanHerck warned last October.
“Another is out in the Mediterranean right now, and another that’s out on its way into the Atlantic. That will be a persistent, proximate threat capable of carrying a significant number of land-attack cruise missiles that can threaten our homeland.”
Russia Maritime Studies Institute (RMSI) Director Michael Peterson also warned, “Nuclear-powered submarines have been deploying off the coast of the United States and into the Mediterranean and elsewhere along Europe periphery,” mirroring Soviet style submarine deployments in the Cold War.
Russia’s navy is one of the strongest submarine forces in the world, particularly in its ability to leverage nuclear capability as a deterrent. Vladimir Putin himself warned in December that the nuclear sub program “will ensure Russia’s security for decades to come.”
Despite these warnings, President Biden has yet to take any concrete action to address the Russian threat. Instead, his administration has remained largely passive, neither responding nor escalating the situation.
This is concerning, as it suggests that the Biden administration is not taking the threat of foreign powers seriously and is leaving our nation vulnerable to attack.
It’s clear that the United States needs a more effective response to foreign threats. Thanks to Democrats’ woke ideologies infiltrating the US military and just general nonsensical distractions caused by the left, I don’t think now is the time to go to war.
Likewise, Biden’s weak wristed handling of the growing foreign threats has seemingly placed the US in a very touchy and dangerous situation. We need strong and strategic leadership to relieve these tensions and sadly, this administration just doesn’t cut it.
