I Prayed have prayed
Lord, I ask that You arise and put an end to all violence. Extinguish pain and misery wherever it is found, and spread Your gift of grace and peace upon the face of creation.

It is hard to fathom that the Biden administration is only a bit more than a year old. Over the last year, the Biden agenda has seemed laser-focused on keeping COVID-pandemic stimulus funding, and restrictions, alive – while simultaneously undoing nearly all of the Trump administration’s executive orders. Meanwhile, the media and American public have been focused on the domestic side effects of these policies, like rapidly rising inflation, a supply-chain crisis, and skyrocketing crime in our inner cities.

This lack of coverage on international news has lulled the American public to sleep while a foreign affairs power vacuum not seen since before America entered World War II has emerged. As the White house continues to pivot to social issues or climate change, it is increasingly apparent that China, Russia, and Iran are forming an Axis that are taking actions that may lead to global military conflicts.

In 2021, as the Biden administration restarted the Obama-era “nuclear talks” with Iran, terror attacks by Iran-backed groups in Gaza and Houthi rebels in Yemen ramped up. This included a recent Houthi attack on Abu Dhabi, the capital city of the UAE, an ally of both the US and Israel.  This may be due to the fact that Iran entered the 2021 round of nuclear talks with an emboldening backing from China and Russia…

The Biden Administration, European Union, and the United Kingdom have failed to offer any strategic vision for how to counter this axis. Worse, the Biden administration has served to embolden this axis though the fiasco of its hasty retreat from Afghanistan, failure to support investigations into the Chinese origins of COVID-19, encouragement of Taiwan’s participation in international organizations, cancellation of US energy export projects, and approval of Russia’s Nordstream II pipeline only seem to be strengthening this powerful anti-American alliance.

This absence of American strength on the world stage could force our allies into backing this axis over their traditional alliances with the west, which creates a loss in both defense and intelligence capabilities that protect America. The 25-year strategic cooperation agreement between China and Iran affirmed China’s tactical presence in the Middle East. As Russia cooperates with China, Iran and Turkey, an American ally, the balance of power in the Middle East and North Africa may be shifting away from the west…

America’s further disengagement from the Middle East under the Biden Administration is also speeding up this arms race in a volatile region, as Saudi Arabia and the UAE have been forced to counter Iran’s influence in the region. Saudi Arabia spent $58 billion on arms in 2020, making it the 6th largest military spender and the largest military importer in the world. This would have been beneficial to US defense contractors, but the Biden administration’s revision of a $23 billion sale of fifty F-35 fighter jets to the UAE has recently resulted in the cancellation of that order, which has since gone to the French…

With the congressional midterm elections and 36 states electing a Governor in 2022, it’s vital for America to reverse its current foreign policy strategy (or lack thereof). If not, it may take generations to rebuild alliances in regions where a lack of intelligence can lead to increased threats of terrorism, invasion, and/or destabilizing economic policies.
