U.S. diplomacy is lost

  Trump’s threat of intimidating diplomacy has rattled even U.S. allies. Biden’s diplomacy, which claims to unite allies and lead the world, makes the whole world more dangerous.
  On August 8, the U.S. Department of Defense announced that the U.S. would provide Ukraine with an additional $1 billion in military aid. This is the largest single military aid provided by the United States to date. The U.S. military said that the U.S.’s current priority is to “ensure that Ukraine has a stable supply of ammunition to continue fighting.”
  On the same day, the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced that Russia had notified the United States through diplomatic channels that it had decided to temporarily withdraw from the facility inspection mechanism of the New START Treaty and withdraw relevant Russian facilities from the inspection activities stipulated in the treaty. This treaty is the only nuclear weapons control mechanism between the world’s top two nuclear powers.
  The fighting on the battlefield and the collapse of order will continue. It is unknown whether these two events happened on the same day as a coincidence, but what is certain is how absurd the Biden administration’s “diplomacy” that combines confrontation and cooperation is.
  On the one hand, through continuous military assistance to Ukraine and unprecedented economic sanctions against Russia, it has forced Moscow into a corner; on the other hand, it wants to maintain “cooperation” with Russia on issues related to its own security interests. This design of Biden’s diplomatic team is too “perfect” to be true.
  Trump’s diplomacy gives the outside world the impression of impulsive decisions and reckless recklessness. In fact, Biden’s diplomacy not only perpetuates his predecessor, but has far more serious consequences. The US “Newsweek” analyzed that the Biden administration’s actions against Russia are the product of impulsive decisions in the eyes of allies and opponents, and have not given sufficient consideration to the easily foreseeable consequences.
  Food crises, energy crises, and the erosion of trust in international rules and mechanisms by bottomless economic sanctions are all consequences that are not difficult to foresee. More importantly, after leading allies to form a “united front” against Russia, what to do next? There is no plan to end the crisis in the current Biden diplomacy.
  On August 9, Biden signed the protocol for Sweden and Finland to join NATO. According to the unwritten rules of power within NATO, the signature of the US president means that the two countries have obtained the key to joining the alliance. If this is the “solution”, it will not be good for Europe.
  A NATO closer to Russia will undoubtedly create greater insecurity for Moscow. A less secure Russia will not make Europe more secure. If the security relationship between the United States and Europe and Russia is completely dependent on the balance of nuclear terror that may escalate, the whole world will be more insecure.
  The Biden administration’s diplomatic operations on Sweden and Finland joining NATO, which seem to be “clean”, are actually more like empty promises. As the above article of “Newsweek” said, is the United States really willing to send troops to protect these countries when needed? If so, where are the U.S. military budgets, military training, military equipment, and military doctrines reflected?
  Although it is high-profile, it does not stand up to scrutiny, indicating that there is a problem with diplomacy. Judging from the current situation, the diplomacy of the Biden administration has created far more problems than it hopes to solve. So much so that some American scholars said they couldn’t understand it, and used “confusion” to define Biden’s diplomacy.
  The crisis in Sino-US relations triggered by US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan is a direct consequence of Biden’s “confused” diplomacy.
  The White House said that Pelosi’s visit was her personal decision, but such an argument was unconvincing in terms of real diplomacy and political logic. The Economist article believes that Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan highlights the incoherent strategy of the United States, “the Biden administration’s policies are a mess.”
  US political analyst Thomas Friedman wrote: “The inability of a Democratic president to prevent a Democratic House speaker from adopting a foreign policy that his entire national security team, from the CIA director to the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, considers unwise, is our The embodiment of political dysfunction.”
  Of course, even if “political dysfunction” can be an explanation, it cannot hide the confrontational mentality of the Biden policy team on China policy. Because in their diplomatic design with China, confrontation and cooperation can go hand in hand. To a certain extent, this is also a prominent feature of Biden’s “confused” diplomacy.
  The lack of resolution in the Ukraine crisis proves that Biden diplomacy will not work. After Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan, China’s large-scale military exercises and diplomatic countermeasures against the United States prove that Biden’s diplomacy has reached a dead end. If the US continues to play the “Taiwan card”, it will significantly increase the risk of military conflict in East Asia.
  Biden’s diplomacy will bring more trouble to the world if he gets lost and never returns.
