World on edge of War; Biden cuts defense budget

They already see a President who they regard as senile and incompetent, who simply doesn't cut it as leader of the free world

Revelation 6:3-4 “when he opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say, “Come!” 4 And out came another horse, bright red. Its rider was permitted to take peace from the earth, so that people should slay one another, and he was given a great sword.

Important Takeaways:

  • Russia is beating us in Ukraine. China’s Navy outnumbers the US. The Army is collapsing – and the Air Force is falling from the sky. So, as Biden inexplicably CUTS defense budgets, ANDREW NEIL blasts: Does he have a death wish?
  • From the very start of his State of the Union address last week, President Biden positioned himself as a war president.
  • He posed as the champion of freedom and democracy which are threatened across the globe by autocrats on the march
  • All the more remarkable then that, within days, the Biden administration produced plans for defense spending with all the hallmarks of a peace president who no longer thinks the US military need be a priority.
  • The autocrats must be both baffled and amused. The rest of us should be frightened and angry.
  • Biden proposes that defense spending should rise to $895 billion in the next (2025) financial year — an increase of barely 1 percent.
  • It’s not that there’s no extra money around. The Biden budget will add over a trillion to federal spending and take it to a record peacetime, non-pandemic share of GDP (25 percent).
  • Be in no doubt that the autocrats in Moscow, Beijing, Tehran and Pyongyang are taking serious notice.
  • The Chinese Naval fleet is already bigger than America’s and is on target to be over 400-strong before the decade is out — a formidable armada that will undoubtedly be used to intimidate Taiwan.
  • Americans have rightly criticized the Europeans for putting welfare above military needs. But under Biden, America is doing the same — just another example of how he is ‘Europeanizing’ the USA.
  • Yet the Russian economy is now on a total war footing, able to resupply its invaders in Ukraine at a greater scale than we are resupplying Kyiv and, as America struggles to find an extra 1 percent for its military, China has just announced an increase of over 7 percent for its armed forces.
