The Biden Regime Desperately Calls for Additional Funds for Israel and Ukraine
On October 19, 2023, President Joe Biden called on Congress to pass a military aid package for Israel and Ukraine worth tens of billions of dollars. He called for this injection of military aid on the grounds that the US needed to break its politically polarized state to protect two key allies and preserve US hegemony worldwide. Biden was essentially requesting $60 billion in military aid for Ukraine and $14 billion in military aid for Israel on top of funding for border security and security measures for the Asia-Pacific measures. This package is expected to cost over $100 billion.
During a televised address from the Oval Office, Biden declared that Hamas, the Palestinian terrorist organization that attacked Israel earlier in October, and Russia, which launched a military invasion of Ukraine in 2022, shared similar goals that must be derailed. “Hamas and [Vladimir] Putin represent different threats, but they share this in common: they both want to completely annihilate a neighboring democracy,” Biden proclaimed. “History has taught us that when terrorists don’t pay a price for their terror, when dictatorships don’t pay a price for their aggression, they cause more chaos and death and more destruction,” he stated. “We cannot and will not let terrorists like Hamas and tyrants like Putin win — I refuse to let that happen.”
Biden revealed he had “cautioned the government of Israel not to be blinded by rage” in its response to the Hamas attacks. So far, Israel has launched a limited ground invasion against Gaza.
He emphasized that his regime was still pushing for “two-state solution” so that an eventual peace can be reached with the Palestinians. However he stressed that he was making an “unprecedented commitment to Israel’s security that will sharpen Israel’s qualitative military edge”, which includes improving its Iron Dome air defense system. US taxpayer’s subsidization of Ukraine runs the risk of ending in the coming months, which is making the Biden regime desperate to have Uncle Sam’s welfare handouts continue to flow to Ukraine. “We can’t let petty partisan angry politics get in the way of our responsibility as a great nation,” Biden cautioned.
This speech comes at a time when the US is experiencing mass political polarization on economic and cultural fronts. However, when it comes to an interventionist foreign policy, both parties seem to agree with the menu of interventionist options — military aid for proxy wars, sanctions, direct military action, covert operations, etc.
The only differences the parties have just consist of the countries they want to subvert.This is a foreign policy consensus that will inevitably bleed the US dry both financially and in terms of manpower unless there’s a major course correction by its foreign policy decision makers.
