President Biden Makes The Case For Wartime Help To Israel And Ukraine In Primetime Address

President Joe Biden connected the battles in Ukraine and Israel and passionately urged the American people to stand with two democratic nations that he claimed were in grave danger at a Thursday night primetime Oval Office address.

The president has frequently framed this historical juncture as a “inflection point” and a conflict between autocracies and democracies around the world. In an attempt to garner support for US funding of foreign wars, he said on Thursday that “this is one of those moments.” This was a direct appeal to the American people, who may find it difficult to advance his position in Congress, where the House of Representatives is in its second week without a speaker and still unable to pass legislation.

“Hamas and Putin represent different threats, but they share this in common: They both want to completely annihilate a neighboring democracy, completely annihilate it,” Biden said.

“We can’t let petty partisan, angry politics get in the way of our responsibilities as a great nation. We cannot and will not let terrorists like Hamas and tyrants like Putin win. I refuse to let that happen,” he added.”

Defining the wars as a national security need and a pivotal juncture for the future of American leadership and democracy globally, he outlined the stakes for the American people.

“American leadership is what holds the world together. American alliances are what keep us in America safe. American values are what make us a partner nation you want to work with,” he said. “To put all that at risk – we walk away from Ukraine, we turn our backs on Israel – it’s just not worth it.”

Support for both wars is “essential for America’s national security,” according to the president.

“History has taught us that when terrorists don’t pay a price for their terror, when dictators don’t pay a price for their aggression, they cause more chaos and death and more destruction. They keep going. And the cost and the threat to America in the world keep rising,” Biden said, warning, “If we don’t stop Putin’s appetite for power and control in Ukraine, he won’t limit himself just to Ukraine.”

Additionally, he issued a more general warning, saying that rivals and enemies of the United States “are watching.”

“If we walk away and let Putin erase Ukraine’s independence, would-be aggressors around the world would be emboldened to try the same. The risk of conflict and chaos could spread in other parts of the world – in the Indo Pacific, in the Middle East, especially in the Middle East,” Biden said.
