Of course, that description can come as little to no surprise to those of us who lived through the Obama-Biden presidency. Their foreign policy was absolutely ludicrous: America’s friends were abandoned while its enemies felt more empowered than ever before to do whatever they pleased. Case in point: Iran.
The Washington Free Beacon reports that former Vice President Joe Biden “reportedly played a decisive role in enabling recently assassinated Iranian terror leader Qassem Soleimani to push the United States out of Iraq and deliver the country into the hands of Iran.” The website bases this statement on a 2013 article in the New Yorker.
That article, published almost seven years ago, explains that when Iraq held elections in 2010, Terror-General Qasem Soleimani went to great lengths to make sure that those elections were won by Iran-backed parties and politicians. At the same time, Biden worked hard to convince pro-America politician Ayad Allawi to stop trying to form a government. As a result, Iran was basically able to stage a coup in the neighboring country.
Allawi, whose party won the majority of seats in parliament but who failed to form a coalition because of America’s lack of support (which was pushed by Biden!), told the New Yorker‘s Dexter Filkins that Biden called to tell him to abandon his bid for Prime Minister, saying, ‘You can’t form a government.'”
“Allawi said he suspected that the Americans weren’t willing to deal with the trouble the Iranians would have made if he had become Prime Minister,” Filkins went on to summarize the relationship between Allawi and Biden. “They wanted to stay in Iraq, he said, but only if the effort involved was minimal. ‘I needed American support,’ he said. ‘But they wanted to leave, and they handed the country to the Iranians. Iraq is a failed state now, an Iranian colony.'”
Now, that was in 2013. In the meantime, it has only become worse. Iraq is now little more than an Iranian province, albeit with a sizeable Sunni minority.
In any case, this situation has been caused by… Joe Biden. Yes, the very same guy who came out blasting President Trump for taking out his old pal, Terror-General Soleimani.
There’s only one way to describe Biden on foreign policy. As GOP Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel puts it on Twitter: this guy is truly a walking, talking foreign policy disaster.

All freedom-loving people on earth should better hope that Biden doesn’t become president. If he does, the only ones who’ll celebrate are those who enjoy chanting “Death to America.”
