Our adversaries around the globe have been taking full advantage of Joe Biden being in office.
The moment Trump walked out of the Oval Office for the last time, they all started to make their moves.
Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says he knows why.
Whether you like Trump or not, you have to admit our adversaries really never messed with him.
There may have been the odd poking of the bear, but that is nothing out of the ordinary in the global political game.
Be it they thought Trump was not going to be pushed around or that he may be just crazy enough to put the key in the switch, Russia, China, North Korea, just to name a few, did not try to push him around.
The same cannot be said for Biden.
Joe talks a tough game, but he never actually does anything.
To that point, Pompeo stated, “You have more words from the Biden administration, no actions, no demonstrated resolve and I think you see Vladimir Putin observing that.
“He’s going to push to accomplish either a diplomatic outcome he couldn’t achieve otherwise or to actually retake some of Ukraine like he did when President Obama was in charge and President Biden was then our vice president.
“I think Vladimir Putin watches what happens with this administration, watches what happens in Afghanistan.
“We think of these as separate but they’re deeply connected. And you’ll remember the Russian history there where they were drummed out of Afghanistan.
“He watches the Americans lose 13 soldiers as we depart Afghanistan in a way that was a total debacle. He sees weak leadership, he doesn’t see us defending our values, and I think he’s prepared to push this issue with Ukraine to the brink to get what Vladimir Putin wants.”

Many “experts” believe the move on Ukraine is nothing more than posturing on Putin’s part, but I would not be so sure about that right now.
Don’t get me wrong, he is definitely using that as leverage, but the idea that he will not give the thumbs up to invade is in serious question right now.
Putin knows he faces no military threat from the United States, and he has laughed off sanctions, so what is there to really stop him from making his move?
Do you think Putin will continue to push Biden around or do you think Joe will eventually stand up to him?
