Foreign Policy in Biden’s America

Chuckle-worthy saber rattling

Joe Biden lobbed a series of tweets this week threatening retaliation should Russia interfere with U.S. elections. This is plausible, of course, as Russia has been trying to do just that for decades.

"I'm putting the Kremlin and other foreign governments on notice," a staffer likely tweeted on his behalf. If you listen closely, you may hear the Kremlin's guffaws. They are quite familiar with Biden’s 40-year record.

From the missile defense program, to enhancing stealth capabilities for military aircraft, to the crippling "nuclear freeze," adversaries like Russia have learned they can count on Joe Biden to deliver a weak, vulnerable America.

Tweeting with feigned bluster won't change that.
