Breakdown of Global Security Accelerating Due to Lack of US Presidential Leadership

Before Mr. Biden potentially leaves office in January 2025, it is increasingly clear that America’s adversaries see 2024 as open season to cash in on the weakest American president in history

Driven by the weakness of President Biden’s leadership and national security policies, there has been a stunning acceleration of global threats in just the first two months of 2024.

Over the last week, Yemen’s Iran-backed Houthi rebels fired missiles that may have sunk a U.K.-owned container ship and fired advanced underwater drones for the first time that were intercepted by a U.S. Navy ship. The Houthis also shot down an MQ-9 Reaper combat drone with a surface-to-air missile. These attacks occurred after weeks of U.S. and U.K. airstrikes against Yemen and President Biden’s statement on January 11 that he sent a tough private message to Iran and, as a result, “they [Iran] know not to do anything.”

Last week, we learned Russia is planning to place nuclear weapons in space, reportedly to target American satellites. The New York Times reported on February 21 that U.S. intelligence agencies warned America’s allies in Europe that Russia could launch a nuclear weapon into orbit this year.

Russian officials announced the death of jailed Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny on February 16. Western leaders questioned the circumstances of Navalny’s death because Russian intelligence operatives tried to poison him in 2021 and due to the many Putin political enemies who suffered suspicious deaths from accidents and poisoning. Biden officials said they would announce “major sanctions” against Russia in response to Navalny’s death.

On February 20, Russian authorities arrested Ksenia Karelina, a Russian-American ballerina, during a visit to Russia on charges of treason for allegedly donating $51 to a Ukrainian charity and attending pro-Ukraine rallies in the U.S. That same day, Russia extended the pretrial detention of Wall Street Journal reporter Evan Gershkovich until at least March 30.  Gershkovich has been imprisoned on trumped-up espionage charges for a year.

As the war in Ukraine enters its third year, Russia recently took the strategic eastern city of Avdiivka and may be on the verge of making other gains on the ground as the Russian army attacks with waves of conscripts and Ukraine is running low on troops and ammunition.

China triggered panic in Taiwan this week after two Chinese coast guard ships boarded a Taiwanese tourist boat and conducted a forced inspection.

Last month, Customs and Border Protection officials announced that a record 302,000 illegal migrants crossed the U.S. southern border in December 2023 because of President Biden’s refusal to secure this border.
