The United States and the world… until a better

Les États-Unis et le monde... En attendant mieux

With time, there are anniversaries that come and go and that there is more. This is what happened last Tuesday with agreement on the nuclear program of Iran. He was not old yet, five years ago. Barack Obama had found a way to moderate the transports of the Iranians. Without offering better, Donald Trump was all thrown to the garbage. Like so many other things.

In the Bible, the book of Genesis describes the creation of the world, six very busy days for God, each ending with “there was evening and there was morning…” and Then, everything is different. It comes to such mythic references to what awaits the United States and the rest of the world, once the current president out of the White House.

To see things go, american foreign policy will undergo a metamorphosis which will make it move from chaos to order. Joe Biden is not the Savior, but he can’t make it worse. Donald Trump with his “America First” has squandered the goodwill that the major allies of the United States had against the superpower.

In fact, its management is apocalyptic of the pandemic is now so that we don’t want to see the Americans in Canada nor in Europe nor Oceania. A handful of countries, thirst for u.s. dollars, remain willing to open their borders : Albania, Belarus, and Kosovo, in particular… not quite dream destinations.

A dose of consistency

Just a little good will on the part of Joe Biden with respect to the traditional allies of the United States will be welcomed with as much enthusiasm as the liberation of France in 1944.

The democratic candidate assumed the presidency undertakes, from its first day in the White House, to return to the Paris Agreement on climate, in a move that will give the United States a central role in what is shaping up to be the great fight of the 21st century : the fight against climate change.

In the Face of the Chinese engaillardit a bit more every day, the United States will pull out of the current love-hate relationship where Donald Trump wandering between his admiration for Xi Jinping, the imposition of tariffs on chinese exports and the hope of massive purchase of agricultural products by Beijing.

Friends could not be associated with

Let’s be realistic, the president, Trump launched a few elk that nobody really wants to break. In a long essay published in late-January by the Foreign Affairs magazine, former vice-chairman of Barack Obama recognizes, too, that ” we must bring the great majority of our troops home from the wars in Afghanistan and the Middle East, and set closely to our mission as being to defeat Al-Qaeda and the islamic State. “

That said, we can already glimpse – in the event of the victory of Biden on Trump – major changes in american foreign policy that only a few autocrats and other dictators will regret.

Mohammed bin Salman, the crown prince of saudi arabia, who has not had to bear the murder heinous of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, Kim Jong-un, the tyrant in north korea, which is not conceived of surely not even in his wildest dreams, the global recognition that have been bestowed on his meetings with the american president.

Without forgetting Vladimir Putin, the Russian president, who is allowed – up to pay premiums for every american soldier killed in Afghanistan – without Donald Trump not rises the tone. This relationship, she will remain a mystery.

President Trump… they will be bored.
