Biden's mission; Revival of global convergence or utilitarian brokering of violence?

Contrary to the public perception that the Republicans are the political supporters of American weaponry companies and contrary to his pacifist election slogans, Joe Biden has appeared more as a broker to secure the interests of these companies.

NOURNEWS - The US State Department announced the approval of the sale of an arms package worth 1.1 billion dollars to Taiwan. The package includes a $665 million early warning system that will help Taiwan detect missiles early. The package also includes $355 million in advanced Harpoon missiles. This action of the United States takes place while claiming to support Taiwan against China, which Joe Biden's biggest claim in the 2020 election campaign was to restore America's global position with an interactive approach and expand cooperation with other countries. He claimed that Trump, with his violent and irresponsible policies, has pushed US towards isolation and even away from its allies, and that he will take steps to change and revive global management along with American interaction by entering the White House. This approach of Biden does not only include Taiwan, and Washington has also increased military aid and arms sales to Japan and South Korea under the pretext of confronting China, as at the same time as reviving American military exercises with these countries, Japan is considering deploying 1,000 long-range cruise missiles. to strengthen its counterattack capability against China. South Korea has also demanded an increase in military and weapons support from the United States, while at the request of the United States, Seoul and Tokyo participated in the NATO summit for the first time. AUKUS agreement with Australia in the form of building a nuclear submarine for this country, along with increasing military cooperation with the claim of countering China's movements and maritime security, also forms another dimension of this militarism. Since the beginning of 2022, at the same time as the start of the war in Ukraine, American action has been based not on trying to solve the crisis through political means, but on the emphasis on militarization and the sale of weapons, as "Jake Sullivan", the national security advisor of the White House, says that this country will soon officially strengthen the program It will announce its long-term military presence in Europe. In this context, the Pentagon announced at the end of July that it had agreed to sell weapons and military equipment worth more than two billion dollars. These weapons include the sale of Patriot missiles to the Netherlands, cruise missiles to Australia. The Pentagon also announced a new military aid package to Ukraine worth 775 million dollars, which includes ammunition and drones, and Biden also said that as part of our commitment, I am proud to announce the largest part of Washington's security assistance so far; About $2.98 billion in weapons and equipment will be provided through the Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative. It is interesting to note that the Biden administration has recently requested a budget of 47 billion dollars from Congress, of which about 13.7 billion dollars will be allocated to help Ukraine, which includes the cost of military equipment, intelligence data collection and economic aid. The biggest recipients of recent deals were Germany, Saudi Arabia, the UAE and the Netherlands, all of which bought more than $1 billion in military equipment. Other prominent buyers include Kuwait, Taiwan and Norway, whose purchases helped bring total foreign arms sales to nearly $60 billion this year. The Secretary of State has signed a contract based on which "Javelin" missiles worth 74 million dollars will be sent to Brazil. On the other hand; During his trip to West Asia, in the occupied territories and Saudi Arabia, on the one hand, Biden emphasized the extensive sale of weapons to Tel Aviv and America's Arab allies, and on the other hand, he claimed that the Arab countries should join the unified air system, which is basically the sale of Patriots and missile platforms and American weapons. To be more precise; Biden's trip to West Asia was more in the form of an arms dealer to market for arms factories than in the capacity of the president. It is noteworthy that one of the largest and largest military budgets was prepared in the domestic arena of the United States this year, as the House of Representatives unanimously approved the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which includes the 840 billion dollar budget for the fiscal year 2023 of the Ministry of Defense (Pentagon) and The defense spending policies of this country were approved. with these explanation; It can be seen that, contrary to the public perception that the Republicans are the political support of American weaponry companies and contrary to his pacifist election slogans, Biden has appeared more as a broker to secure the interests of these companies. In addition to deepening internal differences, Biden has actually intensified the atmosphere of tension on the world stage, which can be seen in the war in Ukraine, the crisis in Taiwan, and the American tension in West Asia. These behaviors of the Democratic tenant of the White House have raised the question in the public mind, is Joe Biden's mission to restore American global integration or is he a utilitarian broker of violence?
