Biden: We are moving from an era of ‘relentless war’ to ‘relentless diplomacy’

The present time really does have so much in common with the mid to late 70s. When Nixon (the Trump of his era, with some differences) was run out of office, he was replaced by a Rockefeller Republican regime (literally, as Nelson Rockefeller was Ford’s vice-president). Then Ford was replaced with a Rockefeller Democrat regime in the form of the Trilateralist Jimmy Carter (whose national security advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski was the foreign policy advisor to the Rockefeller Democrats, just as Henry Kissinger was the foreign policy advisor to the Rockefeller Republicans). Biden’s current “less war, more diplomacy” rhetoric is very reminiscent of Jimmy Carter.

In what is sure to be one of the topline moments of his Tuesday speech, President Biden informed the United Nations General Assembly of a new era in U.S. foreign policy and dealings — one that closes the door on “relentless war” and opens a new period of “relentless diplomacy.”

“We’ve ended 20 years of conflict in Afghanistan,” said Biden. “And as we close this period of relentless war, we’re opening a new era of relentless diplomacy.”

Biden also called for cooperation among the world’s leaders and cultures to solve the issues of today — like the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the climate crisis, to name a few — noting that a “government by and for the people” is still the best way to deliver. He added, “We must also engage deeply with the rest of the world to ensure that our own future, we must work together with other partners, our partners, toward a shared future.”
