BIDEN: Leadership lacking

| May 23, 2021 1:00 AM

President Joe Biden has told Israel’s PM Benjamin Netanyahu he expects a “significant de-escalation” in the Gaza conflict.

Now let’s put this in perspective. Suppose another country had fired thousands of rockets into the Washington area, killing its citizens and destroying countless buildings. What would Mr. Biden do? The way he looks at it, probably nothing.

Mr. Netanyahu is being criticized for blowing up a building that housed a news organization. Of course nothing is being said that that same building also houses Hamas’s people. They do this all the time, hide behind innocent citizens and so if you strike at them, they say you targeted innocent people.

In my opinion, it’s all you need to know about Mr. Biden’s leadership skills. How tough do you think he will be on Russia or China? Sorry, but the man is not up to the challenge of what used to be one of the greatest countries in the world leading in peace and humanitarian efforts.

Although he is leading the world in open borders, canceling good jobs, promoting equity, racial justice and of course climate change, good job!
