The veteran intelligence officer acknowledged the incapacity of Biden’s national security team.
Jonathan Sweet, a veteran of American intelligence, told reporters that the US NATO allies faced serious problems due to retaliatory restrictive measures that Russia imposed in response to anti-Russian sanctions.
According to “PolitRussia” with reference to The Hill, the politician believes that both states and their economies are falling and staggering under the weight of Putin’s counter-sanctions. In particular, the main losses affected trade.
As an example, the expert cited the resignation of Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi. The reason was the rise in prices for utilities, food and other problems.
Sweet pointed out the fact that the problems of the American allies could become even stronger in the coming winter. As a result, there are more and more doubts about the need to support Ukraine in its own.
Russia understands this, so gas supplies have been reduced.
All this also affects the United States, whose existential risks are growing day by day. And, according to the expert, they are not limited exclusively to the East of Europe.
There is also China in the arena, which threatens to crack down on Taiwan, Iran, which is looking for its nuclear weapons. And Russia, “squeezed into Ukraine”, is trying to build “a backdoor” to the United States through Venezuela, Cuba and Nicaragua, an experienced intelligence officer believes.
The Hill expert pointed out that the way out of the situation could be an urgent reboot of the national security sphere. Sweet believes that from this point of view, Biden’s team is useless, as demonstrated by the visit of the American leader to the Middle East.
Sweet says in plain text that the president needs to expel the head of the administration, Ron Klein, and the entire Western national security team.
“They don’t create the conditions necessary to defeat Russia, China, Iran or North Korea,” Sweet said.
