How many international conflicts can one superpower handle simultaneously?

The Biden administration is currently responding to wars in the Middle East and Europe, while also bracing for escalating tensions with China and Taiwan.

All of these events are taking place under the long shadow cast by Donald Trump.

The former president’s possible return to the White House raises serious questions about the future of the United States and its role in the world.

Support for Ukraine remains in limbo in Europe and the US

The combination of these events creates a sense of tension and foreboding that could be felt in a government building in Washington, D.C.

This is echoed not only by the sheer number of crises looming over the Biden administration, but also by the fact that many of them, such as the wars in Ukraine and the Middle East, are heading in the wrong direction.

Opinion polls show Joe Biden at a disadvantage.

The crisis overseas may soon reach a critical moment.

“The next three months could decide the next few years,” said one senior U.S. government official.

A major Democratic politician worries that “in January, we could be talking about how Joe Biden lost Ukraine.”

New funding for Ukraine’s military and civilian institutions is up in the air in the U.S. Congress.

The Biden administration appears confident that aid for Ukraine will eventually be agreed.
