“A strong and enduring alliance with North Korea.” These are the words of Kamala Harris, the Vice President of the United States, in reference to the relationship of the US with North Korea. It would be laughable if it were not so serious and dangerous.
The bad actors in the world, specifically Putin in Russia, and whomever else is thinking about invading their neighbors, are licking their tongues due to the realization that the United States’ weakness on the world stage is being broadcast almost every other day with another sad pronouncement by the Vice President or President.
No supporter of the Democrat Party should be at ease over the present situation. Thousands of Russians and Ukrainians have been killed and millions have been displaced due to Vladimir Putin’s ruthlessness. This is a direct result of Putin not being scared of sanctions from the United States and the West. There were and are sanctions, but not biting enough. As long as the United States energy strategy is one of dependence and not independence, Vladimir Putin knows that he is in control. Thankfully, the Russian people are beginning to wake up to the horror that they may become embroiled in an endless war against Ukraine – all for Putin. The demonstrations against Putin will probably grow and grow as the number of people Putin drafts grows.
But none of this would have happened if Putin perceived a strong US leader in the Oval Office. The Democrat Party projects weakness on the world stage in nearly every sphere. Hopefully the midterm elections will begin the change that the US and the world so sorely need. If Kamala Harris becomes President, Putin and the other bad actors will probably become even more emboldened to shake things up in their regions via invading their neighbors.
