Biden is the president of war, and he has already won
There have been much bloodier centuries in history than the 21st century. But we have waited for our Washington – Joe Biden
An extremely powerful speech by US President Joe Biden.I highly recommend watching it in its entirety in the original, with Ukrainian subtitles as much as possible, because I have not yet found a successful simultaneous translation.
It's just an intellectual euphoria of emotions, intonations, and meanings.
The key is not emotions, but a deep meaning and vision, with a detailed explanation of why what we are doing today will allow us to maintain our leadership status for decades to come.
Xi, by setting fire to various parts of the world, hoped to seriously weaken the United States so that his China could become the leader and lawmaker of the planet.
Putin, by training and arming Hamas, transferring sensitive technologies to China, North Korea, and Iran, and plunging African states into bloody chaos, believed that this would hit the hated Biden, who had ruined all the Kremlin's plans.
Biden has already won. NATO has already grown, and de facto has almost doubled in size. Biden is a war president whose rivals cannot formulate anything sensible and only twitch between Moscow's instructions and their own populism, which even their voters are tired of.
The democracies have finally mobilized and instead of 50 shades of gray, there is now a choice: Good or Evil.
Everything has become amazingly simple.
With this speech, Biden finally made it public: "The Axis of Evil exists, I am the president who has united the forces of Good and is leading you to victory. You don't have to worry, work as usual, make money, live safely, the US government is investing in American jobs, even with military spending. This time, the victory of democracy will not cost a single American life.
China, which has not been mentioned once, still has a chance to jump out of the bad company, although everyone knows what it did "last summer". But it looks like Xi will go all the way, to his common end with Putins, Orbans, Ayatollahs, Kims and terrorist leaders.
However, this "Closed City" approach will make the victory of democracies even more certain.
There have been much bloodier centuries in history than the 21st century. But we have waited for our Washington – Joe Biden.
I hope that instead of tweets, the Ukrainian authorities will be able to take meaningful action. The to-do list is on the table!
