The weakness President Joe Biden is projecting is inviting enemies of the United States to believe they can take even more dramatic action, including Iran in its push toward building a nuclear arsenal, said Joel Rosenberg, author of "Enemies and Allies: An Unforgettable Journey Inside the Fast-Moving & Immensely Turbulent Modern Middle East," on Newsmax.
"Iran is getting ready to break out and go full-on, let's build a nuclear arsenal," Rosenberg said on Friday's "John Bachman Now." "Iran is resisting every move in the Vienna nuclear talks; Biden and his team are begging for a deal. Iran is not indicating any evidence they want that because it looks like they think: 'Why should I make a deal with Biden?' He's not going to stop it from building the bomb."
Biden, he added, may even try to keep Israel from stopping Iran from getting a nuclear bomb.
And then there is the problem with Russian President Vladimir Putin and the potential that he could invade Ukraine, Rosenberg said.
"Biden, what's his response? Well, maybe Ukraine really should give away territory so Putin does not think that Biden will stop him," Rosenberg said. "And then you've got China threatening Taiwan."
Rosenberg also commented on reports of tension between former President Donald Trump and ex-Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu after the Israeli leader congratulated Biden for his victory in last year's election.
Trump and Netanyahu were close allies while both were in office, but Trump slammed his counterpart for his welcoming words to Biden, telling writer Barak Ravid that he hasn't spoken to Netanyahu since, and more graphically, "F**k him,"Axios reported.
"That Netanyahu was being trashed. I mean, with vulgarity by Trump; that level of bitterness, given how close they've been politically is striking," Rosenberg said.
"It's true that Trump and Netanyahu got an awful lot done, and I think Trump thought, 'Well, why, within 12 hours when the election was not settled yet, some dispute, why did Bibi go so fast to embrace Biden?' That's between them, but for a break like that to be so open — it's stunning."
