Biden Supports Israel, Ukraine Doesn’t Strain US

As the U.S. national debt continues to surge past the staggering $33 trillion mark, President Joe Biden delivered a resolute message on Sunday night, emphasizing that the United States possesses the capability to finance military endeavors in both Israel and Ukraine.

In an interview with CBS News’ “60 Minutes,” President Biden reaffirmed the dominant status of the United States on the global stage, proclaiming, “We’re the United States of America, for God’s sake, the most formidable nation in the history of the world, not just in the world today.”

President Biden asserted that the nation could effectively support operations in both Israel and Ukraine while maintaining a robust international defense posture, stressing that these two conflicts were paramount in enhancing the security of the American people.

“In Ukraine, one of my primary objectives was to deter Russian President Vladimir Putin, a leader accused of war crimes, from occupying an independent country that shares borders with NATO allies and lies adjacent to Russia,” President Biden elucidated. He underscored the potential repercussions of such an outcome, pointing out the historical tendency for major European conflicts to draw in the United States. “We wish to avert that scenario and ensure the sustenance of these democracies, with Ukraine playing a pivotal role in achieving this goal,” President Biden added.

The “60 Minutes” interview took place in the wake of a series of terrorist attacks launched by Hamas, the governing body in the Gaza Strip, against Israel. In response, the Biden administration has strategically positioned military assets closer to Israel’s borders and fortified Israel’s defenses by providing munitions and interceptors for the Iron Dome missile defense system. This move underscores the United States’ commitment to safeguarding its allies in the region.
