Nothing is more enjoyable for leaders of other countries than to hear U.S. leaders’ hypocritical lectures about how they should behave. From Martin Jay at strategic-culture.org:
The more Joe Biden continues with his erroneous, hapless foreign policy initiatives, the more America drifts farther away from the Global South.
Who said Americans don’t do irony? This boot camp which Biden runs, places the U.S. as the high order and grand master of human rights who ranks the pupils in the class and gives them an apple if they worship the U.S. And who stands by America at the high table? Israel of course!
The more Joe Biden continues with his erroneous, hapless foreign policy initiatives, the more America drifts farther away from the Global South. Biden’s administration will be marked in history as not so much the one associated with the Ukraine war, but the period in office which saw the rapid advancement of BRICS and the dwindling influence of Washington to world energy prices; some might also add to that list the dollar losing its gilt edge as more countries dump it as a reserve currency, often simply to protect themselves from U.S. sanctions and America seen as a spectator to global issues rather than a leader.
This ‘loser’ status is crystallised immaculately with the recent ‘Summit of Democracy’ chaired by Biden himself – a zoom conference attended by over a 100 countries which sets out to promote democracy, led by Washington delivering the moral tutelage to the ignorant masses rather like British missionaries in 1890 penetrating the East African coast and heading into the interior to bring ‘light’ to the lost. It’s all very old world and typically out of touch. Typically Biden.
