There is quite a bit of chaos happening on the world stage these days.
It wasn’t too long ago that China was caught sending balloons over airfields across the globe to pick up surveillance. Meanwhile, Russia continues to stick by the war it started in Ukraine, despite taking substantial losses.
To make matters even more unpredictable, a recent leak of sensitive documents from the US Pentagon took place. This leak has widespread ramifications for multiple countries across the globe, according to Washington Examiner.
It’s also the last problem the United States needs to be confronted with, all things considered.
Given the delicate nature of records that were leaked, some US allies now have concerns about the information being used against them. For example, the documents are believed to have contained details about air defenses for Ukraine.
Likewise, this leak raised questions about whether the United States partook in its own surveillance of South Korea’s government.

As this all happens, China is also being seen circling around Taiwan during the same period in which it practices military drills. Some US officials have therefore warned that the communist regime may be gearing up to attack Taiwan.
More to Come
The weeks and months ahead are ultimately going to reveal the adverse impacts of this information being leaked to the public as it was. This time period will also show if the world is able to turn down certain tensions, rather than ratcheting them up.

Though given the current leadership in the White House, many Americans have their concerns. After all, Joe Biden certainly does not have a positive track record when it comes to handling foreign policy matters.
On numerous occasions, he’s shown passiveness and subservience to countries like China that very much have it in for the United States.This article appeared in Watch Dog News and has been published here with permission.
