such an 'old-world-order creature'
as (Biden) the current US president
will have one purpose only:
We all have that one friend who can't stop arranging things - whether it's matchmaking, dinner parties, or vacation itineraries programmed down to the minute.
The US has been that guy for the world for the past several decades. Everyone's tired of it.
But now it has a new invitation... to a New World Order...
Washington's boldness and confidence has led to,
None of that has made the world a 'better place' - just more chaotic...
It's not like any of these places end up better off as a result.
"Worked out pretty damn well" for whom...?
The same could even be said of my native Canada, whose economic interests were hindered by Biden himself when he unilaterally cancelled a critical $9 billion pipeline project (Keystone XL) upon election.
That should have been the very last time that Canada banked its economic interests on American good faith. It won't be, though.
The EU had its own critical pipeline of Russian gas (Nord Stream) blown up just a few months after Biden said, right in front of German Chancellor Olaf Scholz,
Then, after Biden's promises to help his European partners wean themselves off Russian cooperation in exchange for backing Washington's strategy in Ukraine,
Not only do they now suffer from an overdependence on American fuel that's helping to drive inflation, but they're also stuck with Biden's Inflation Reduction Act that even further disadvantages European industrial exports, already suffering from high energy costs, to the benefit of US manufacturers.
And not even a pleading visit by French President Emmanuel Macron to the White House and Congress has managed to move the dial.
As for the UK, which likes to brag about a "special relationship" with Washington,
Yet, Biden wonders why there seems to be a loss of interest in playing ball with the US on its own terms under the old world order that it dominated. Indeed, what a huge mystery...!
If this is how Washington has been treating its closest allies,
Get real, man... Any New World Order proposed by establishment fixture Biden would exist for one purpose, as it always has:
As would any unity...
Biden explained, as an example, that he was able to get both Japan and South Korea to unite despite "not talking" to one another.
Don't keep us in suspense, man...!
They both signed on this past summer,
It seems that the talking point these days being used to drum up military-industrial business for Washington is that Russia is going to invade anyone and everyone.
If it's a choice between just sitting out all the drama and joining up with Washington's attempts to antagonize China in its own backyard, apparently these Asian countries have decided that turning down US demands just isn't worth it.
Kind of like the obnoxious pal who you know will make your life miserable if you forego his offer to hang out in favor of a quiet night at home - so you just pick the least bad option, sucking it up and indulging him.
This "New World Order" that Biden is peddling sounds like the kind of party whose host would constantly be clanging on his wine glass to make speeches about himself and "muh democracy" while everyone just wants to mingle, and then demand that everyone participate in annoying party games that no one else finds enjoyable or beneficial.
But it looks like Biden is already concerned that this time around, a lot of invitations could remain without response - even if at the risk of having one's house firebombed as a result of the rejection...
