Brandon J. Weichert in Real Clear World writes that President Joe Biden is getting ready to make a big deal on trade and the environment with China…and he just might offer up Taiwan as the sacrificial lamb.
President Joe Biden ran as a revolutionary president who would get big things done efficiently and competently. He was the new FDR. In fact, he is appearing much more like the ineffectual John Quincy Adams to Donald Trump’s Andrew Jackson, so argues Brandon J. Weichert in his recent Asia Times op-ed.
President Joe Biden has become the master of unforced errors. He is completely correct to enhance US-UK-Australian military cooperation to balance against China. But there was no reason to alienate France and possibly the EU in the process – Brandon J. Weichert in The Asia Times
Brandon J. Weichert with some sobering truth about the Global War on Terror.
The American collapse in Afghanistan is not an isolated event under President Joe Biden’s leadership. We are in the terminal decline phase of the end of empire, or in America’s case, superpower. What comes next will be horrific for America.
America’s enemies (and allies) have long assumed that, because we’re the lone Superpower, we were governed by evil geniuses. They are now realizing, in fact, we are government by idiots. While it’s nice to be loved it’s good to be feared. Nothing good comes from being deemed big and dumb…which China, Russia, Iran, and our other rivals now do, thanks to the horrible debacle in Afghanistan.
Do not be fooled by what the Biden administration is doing now against China. Keep an eye out for the longer climate change game—and the self-destructive deal that is likely to follow.
If America cannot defeat Taliban, al Qaeda, or other insurgents in its “Small Wars” how can it expect to win far scarier adversaries in the next “Big War”?
In Brandon J. Weichert’s latest column for The Asia Times, he argues that If the US is to retain its lead in cyberspace, new technologies must be readily brought to bear against China.
Brandon J. Weichert discusses Donald Rumsfeld’s true legacy in his recent Asia Times op-ed: While some of the details of Rumsfeld’s new way of war may have missed their mark in the Global War on Terror, his vision and his fears are still relevant today. Particularly regarding a “Space Pearl Harbor.” If such an attack was merely a “possibility” in 2001, it is a high probability today.
