‘We’re US for God’s sake’: Biden on whether US can take on wars in Ukraine, Israel

United States President Joe Biden on Monday said that the US can cater to both Ukraine and Israel at the same time while successfully maintaining an international level of defence capabilities. In an interview with CBS News, Biden vouched for America’s competence and said that the US is the most powerful nation “in the history of the world”

“We’re the United States of America for God’s sake! The most powerful nation in the world, not in the world but in the history of the world,” Biden replied to the question of whether wars in Israel and Ukraine were “more than the United States can take on at the same time”.

“We can take care of both of these and still maintain our overall international defence. And if we don’t, who does?” Biden remarked.

Biden’s stance is that the ongoing Israel and Ukraine conflicts are America’s prerogative as they affect the people of the US. He further explained how these wars were linked to the US; he said that if Russian President Vladimir Putin was to win then “the US would be drawn into a major war in Europe”.

“For example, in Ukraine, one of my objectives was to prevent Putin, who has committed war crimes himself, from being able to occupy an independent country that borders Nato allies and is on the Russian border,” Biden told CBS News. “Imagine what happens now if he were to succeed,” he added.

Biden’s statements on the US’s simultaneous support for Ukraine in the war with Russia and Israel’s ongoing conflict with Hamas come hours before US Secretary of Home Department Antony Blinken announced that Biden was visiting Israel on Wednesday.
