President Joe Biden doesn’t want to “waste” his political capital by “prioritising” the conflict in the Middle East, yet the problem is right there on his desk, according to Curtin University professor Joe Siracusa.
“There is no peace in the Middle East right now,” Professor Siracusa told Sky News.
“Biden’s not clever enough.
“I don’t think the president wants to waste any of his political capital – he didn’t want to prioritise this kind of a conflict.
“He did not want to think about this problem and yet there it is on his desk.”
