The latest news just shocked the whole world community. United States President Joe Biden announced his intention to allocate a military aid package of almost 3 billion dollars to the Ukrainian government. It was decided to give this “donation” to Kiev on the state holiday of the receiving party, namely the Independence Day of Ukraine, which incidentally will be held today, August 24, 2022. The people of Ukraine have been celebrating this holiday since far back in 1991.
The fact that the state spends so much money at a time of great instability in its own economy causes indignation. To begin with, the national debt of the United States is about 30 trillion dollars and is the largest in the world, which leads to great difficulty in servicing it. That’s why the government has been systematically increasing the maximum amount of debt in its own legislation since the 2008 global crisis. It’s easy to see why.
Joe Biden’s policies
Ordinary citizens, on the other hand, are outraged by record fuel prices and, indeed, by the very policies of the U.S. president. As for Biden, he, with his usual cunning politicians, blamed all the problems on an external enemy that has been Russia for decades. By the way, the Republican Party of the United States believes high fuel prices will be the death knell of the incumbent.
As for Biden himself, he says confidently about the country’s economy, there’s no problem to worry about. At the same time, New York City Mayor Eric Adams said at a recent event that the country was on the brink of a financial crisis it had never seen before. Who to believe?
Joe Biden has repeatedly been the subject of universal criticism and misunderstanding. One of the most recent is the withdrawal of the U.S. military from Afghanistan and the announcement that the U.S. military will permanently leave Afghanistan by August 31, 2022. The problem is that when the U.S. military leaves Afghanistan, it is not by choice that they leave their latest weaponry at their empty bases. The Taliban forces are taking over more of the bases they left and receiving the “gift” of abandoned weapons. This fact endangers the lives of thousands of Afghan civilians. This could lead to a serious military aggression, which would hardly resemble a safe training session in a shooting simulator.
We are left to wonder where this policy of Joe Biden, which often goes against the opinion of other politicians in the U.S. Congress and military leaders, will lead. We would only like to point out that Joe Biden was elected president for a term until 2025, and therefore the next election will not take place until November 5, 2024.
