The biggest challenges the U.S. will face in 2022 won’t be Covid-19 or inflation but Russia and Iran. The way the Biden administration handles these two hostile, despotic governments may determine how secure our country will be for years. Moscow and Tehran are testing the administration’s foreign policy, which, in its first year, has been more principled than muscular. The mortifying withdrawal from Afghanistan made allies around the world insecure and enemies, including Russia and Iran, opportunistic. Russia has massed its troops on Ukraine’s border, ready to invade it and subjugate its people. Iran has continued to increase its enrichment of uranium and move closer to building nuclear weapons. It has improved its long-range ballistic missile capacity so it can attack its enemies in the Arab world and Israel as well as American military personnel and bases in the region. The governments of Vladimir Putin and Ali Khamenei have increased the oppression of their citizens, violating the values at the heart of America’s foreign policy.
