The state of international politics at large is poor. The COVID-19 pandemic irrevocably altered the state of economic, cultural and political life in America. While rampant inflation continues to cripple the working class of nations across Europe and the North American continent, the usually anarchial environment of international politics has been reduced to chaos, turmoil and volatility. In the summer of 2021, the United States botched a military withdrawal from the nation of Afghanistan and 13 American servicemembers were killed in the actions and billions of dollars of military supplies resulted from the failure.
In early 2022, Russia invaded Ukraine in eastern Europe and war returned to the continent for the first time since the end of the second world war in the spring of 1945. Earlier in October, chaos and tragedy erupted in the middle east when the Islamic terrorist organization Hamas launched an invasive attack in Israel in which over 1,000 innocent civilians were murdered in their homes. Ultimately, the human world is closer to a global war than at any time in many decades.
Recently, the former governor of New Jersey and 2024 presidential candidate Chris Christie made a statement that no aid should be sent to Gaza in their war with Israel. Christie said that America should become militarily involved and support Israel in the conflict. He also claimed that America should arm Taiwan as China takes increasingly hostile actions in the pacific. Christie did not forget to mention Ukraine, either, and also called for more aid to the nation. He briefly discussed the crisis at the southern border and called for it to be addressed. Ultimately, the Republican candidate for president is well behind in the polls as Donald Trump continues to maintain a large lead, and he appears to be more concerned about foreign affairs than the plight of Americans at home as the economic and social conditions in the country continue to deteriorate.
